Good Friday to you all! A few announcements before we tuck into today’s post.
1. I forgot to give you an update on how the knock-off brand of Magic Eraser worked out. Well, it was able to clear smudges off our drywall with ease. Unfortunately, that’s really all it was good for. And it started falling apart a few minutes into the de-smudging process. When I tried to remove the stains in our sink the ME failed to even remove the smallest trace of stainage (yep, I’m making up words today. Just go with it 😀 ). Also, the ME was useless in getting rid of the stains on the stove. So I’m giving this one a big thumbs down. I’ll purchase the real thing soon and see if that makes a difference.
2. In a bit of happy news, I received a phone call from the computer repair place saying they fixed what the first guy goofed up and my computer is ready to be picked up. We’ve been a one laptop family for so long (many months at this point. I can’t even remember when we took it in the first time) that I’m giddy with excitement. My littles have been wanting me to download Face Time for ages and this auntie will finally be able to see them on screen. This is their go-to method for talking to the grandparents and anyone else, so when I call, the 2-year old especially, gets confused as to why he can’t see my face. When asked to say “hi,” he will wave. Yep. Ah, ancient technology is confusing. 😀
So, our topic of the day? Cat food. Specifically being a two-cat family. Or poly-feline if you will (still making up words, people. I figure if I make enough of them up, at least one of them will make it into the dictionary! 😛 ).
When you are a poly-feline family, things like food distribution can be tricky. Especially if the cats refuse to eat out of anything but the same bowl. But both cats are old and need to watch their weight. Our solution? Feeding them several smaller meals throughout the day. This has worked beautifully. Except that occasionally we’ll forget and give them too much. This results in epic vomit piles that require copious amounts of paper towel and carpet cleaner to erase. As well as a strong stomach.
So, this week, taking a cue from the recent political campaigning for president, our cats thought up slogans that we can use to remind ourselves how much food they get. We held a contest and voted for the best one. The winning slogan was from the youngest, “Half a cup or we’ll throw up!”
The oldest sulked about the house. Upset that her slogan wasn’t chosen. She was, however, given creativity points for use of imagination. Her slogan?…..
“Half a scoop, or we’ll throw our poop!!”
Yep. She has issues. 😀
