Sad to say, wiith my kids at their father's house for the weekend and my husband not getting up early, I was treated to "Timmy's in the well, mom!" from Thomas around 0700. Now Da Boys know my tradition. If "Timmy's in the well" early in the morning, you have to wait until I'm done with my morning routine. Once I was done with that I asked Thomas & Mister Kitten to "show me" what they needed. Off we went to the kitchen where, lo and behold!, their cat food bowls had food in them. Evidently, my walking them to the bowls was sufficient unto the day so that they realized that indeed they were not starving to death and their ribs were not about to show any second now. After Thomas and Mister Kitten were done eating and I was done making coffee (we grind our own beans), into the kitchen sauntered Star. He also needed me to walk him to the food bowls. Zaphy showed up just as Star was beginning to eat and evidently Star eating was his cue that he wasn't going to starve to death.
BTW Star is being a lovey-dove today, purring and asking for pettings (and also trying----- to help with the blog!). This Ninja Kitty used to be more aloof, it's 632+ amazing what eat-trays can do!! ::weg::
