Feline Friday: Your Attention Please


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


Kida the Mosquito, who is always buzzing around, is the Cat Emeritus here, and she would like your attention, please.

Attention, right here!

As you can clearly see, her favorite bowl is empty of the delectable canned morsels she has come to deserve because of her age and health status.  This cannot and must not be allowed to continue, and is to be dealt with immediately by the human servants, who are to fill this bowl NOW!

And she means it!

  4. Ha - our new kitty has taken to climbing up on the high back of one of my kitchen chairs when I am making food. He reaches out his little paw every now and then when I pass by, I suppose in hopes of getting a treat. But only kitty treats in his bowl for him!

  5. They are just SO demanding. And we always comply. I think she selected that bowl to match her beautiful blue eyes.
