Feline Friday: I'm Hungry Now!

Note:  If Suldog sent you, you are probably looking for Thanksgiving Comes First.  You are also more than welcome to read today's meanderings while you are here.

Steve, The Burnt Food Dude, started Feline Fridays, and i'm going to believe it's because he likes cats.

The kittens are hungry.  All of the time.  Don't even ask, the answer is yes, they are hungry.  And sometimes, don't even bother getting the kitten food out of the storage bin, they will help themselves, thankyouverymuch!

Hey, when's it my turn!

  2. This is so funny...been there, done this! I now have bins that lock.

  3. Those kittens are pretty resourceful to be able to open that storage bin.

  4. Well their cuteness makes up for this you know. I know you already know.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday. ☺

  5. Good One! mine is up as well as my 5 On Friday posting at Golch Central

  6. My cats (except Diva) are already fat ... God knows, I had to put a tight lid on the food bin. Your little ones are not only lucky ... they are smart:)

  7. Love this! I have also discovered that cat food in the bag is much more appealing than the food in a dish, and if left within reach of paws and whiskers it will surely be torn open and enjoyed! :-)

  8. If they steal their food out of their food bin it's OK. When they raid the refrigerator in the middle of the night.. Then there's gonna be trouble!

    Have a great weekend!


  9. Ah yes.. when the kitties want to eat.. they want to EAT. Now! lol.

  10. awww such cute babies....I love love kitties! But Lucy won't allow any other cat in our home! Have a fabulous weekend!

  11. If there is a way to get where they are not supposed to be a cat will find it. These kitties have found heaven on earth.
