Feline Friday: Table for One

Feline Friday is hosted by Steve, The Burnt Food Dude, and i'm going to believe it's because he likes cats.
Feline Friday is simple to join. All you have to do is..
1) post a picture, drawing, cartoon or video of a cat (They may be silly or cute)
2) go to Steve's page, linked above, then on the menu bar click on the Feline Friday tab to get the code
3) paste the code under your cat picture
4) add your name and link
That’s all there is to it! Be sure to check back every so often and visit all the Feline Friday bloggers. Also, please leave a nice comment on their blogs. Nasty comments will be deleted!
Because he is on a special diet for the rest of  his life, we have to feed Dansig separately from the rest of the cats.  Of course, he feels it's just normal to be allowed to eat at the table!  He doesn't realize it's a privilege. 

It's a family failing, perusing the comics while eating.

  2. I'm surprised the other cats don't jump onto the table and join Dansig. It's musical bowls at our house. The kittens want to eat the regular cat food while the older cats eat the kitten chow.
