Tortured with good food

The cats have decided that the new feeding regime is torture.

I am now only putting the food down at certain times of day, and each cat/kitten is in the room that has only its own food available, no way to sneak around and snitch the food it is not supposed to have.

They are determined to torment me back, and have been especially destructive this week. They are even trying to tear up the computer cords, and are literally climbing the furniture, trying to balance on cabinets and get at each other's food. If they had thumbs, they would succeed.

I have found evidence of them attempting to pry closet and cabinet doors open by clawing the edges, had my desk cleared, and find them on the table in a vain search for leftover crumbs every time I turn around.

Poor depraved, uh, that is, deprived, animals. Mama is torturing them, making them eat what is good for them.

We will see who outlasts whom.

Wish me luck.

    I only wish someone would prepare what was good for me and allow me to eat in peace!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. See, that's what you need a dog for. To eat all the cat food and freak the cats into appreciated a human who brings home the bacon-flavored kibble.
