Feline Friday: Problem Solved.

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

It's easy to participate.  Just post a picture of a cat -- one of your cats, a LOLcat, or even draw a picture -- and link up!

Kida keeps telling me about a recurring problem.

We have a problem.  You let my bowl get empty!

Problem solved -- temporarily!

I used to feed my cat boiled eggs sometimes. I'd time them with a ringing egg timer and she'd come running when that thing went off!
