Why don't beans understand that we MUST be fed at the crack of dawn a.m.? Is it so hard to get their booties out of bed to feed us? I mean, come on, 5:30 is not a bad time at all. I know some of you cats out there wake up your beans earlier than that.....but Meowm thinks it is just a horrible time for me to wake her!!! I just can't get it through her thick skull that I am STARVING by that time! I am WASTING away! All of my RIBS are poking through my skin!! I meow and meow at her, using up the last of my strength and all she does is scoot me off the big bed! And then I have to waste more precious energy getting back up there to meow at her more!! What finally worked this morning was my brother yakking. Oh he isn't really sick, he just scarfed down some dry food without chewing it so it came back up. But if sure got Meowm out of bed quick! The ONLY time I see her move that fast is when he yaks. Part of me wants him to yak like this every morning....it would make my job a lot easier....but I know how horrible it is to yak so I will have to work on other ways to get Meowms LAZY bootie out of bed! Sheesh!!! Beans!!!
