Meals are served twice a day around here. Momma has to make sure Mr.Jinx and Ping go outside on the porch while Boo, Gracie & I eat. Momma fixes up two plates because she knows if she doesn't I will bother Boo and she will not get to enjoy her meal. So she puts down one plate for me and one plate for Boo. Then she opens up the cans! She will put some down on my plate and I will lick at the juices and she then can put some down for Boo. After that she must give me some on a spoon and Gracie gets the plate. I am (I hate to admit this) a messy eater. You may be able to see some of the food dropping to the paper towel below, well I've been known to sling it all over the counter, but I am very neat after I finish eating. I try to clean it up by scratching (like in the litter box when you cover up your stinkies) the food and covering it with the paper towel. But the Momma always cleans it up before I scratch too much. We do this twice a day everyday. So how are meals served at your house?
****I have to share a funny story with you....On Easter Sunday, Momma decided to make a real live dead turkey. She put it in a bag and and stuck it into the oven, turned the oven on and decided to sit down and read with me in her lap. All of a sudden a few hours later, we heard a BIG *KABOOM*. Momma quickly got up, put me down, and ran down the hallway. There was smoke funneling out of the oven. The bag that the turkey was in popped inside the oven creating a mess of turkey juices all over Momma's new oven.
Smoke came out so much that it set the smoke alarm off.
All the windows had to be opened and fans posted to clear the smoke out.
All of us kitties were traumatized by the blaring smoke alarms.
Finally the smoke literally cleared.
The alarm stopped.
Peace was resorted.
The turkey was fine, but the asparagus was over done.........
Momma was upset, but she calmed down after I sat on her.
