Royal Demands

This morning those two were sleeping as if they didn't have a care in the world. Well... they DO have a care in the world. Two cares, as a matter of fact: Pumpy and ME.

I simply went into their bedroom at 6:00 AM and asked them to feed me and they shooed me away. OK -- that was a little annoying so I left thinking that they would get up any minute but they didn't. So I went back at 6:15 and asked them, nicely, to please wake up and feed me. This time the woman, with a wave of her hand, shooed me away. I was quite taken aback. I mean... REALLY! Waving her hand at me like that was unnecessary

Finally I went in at 6:30 and I demanded... yes demanded that one of them get up and feed me. I would NOT be silenced. So the woman, very begrudgingly got up and gave Pumpy and me our stinky goodness.

Now really... was that so hard? She is very undisciplined and could have saved herself a lot of aggravation if she had just responded appropriately the first time my polite request was made.

Pearl, your demands are very simple. I do not know why they cannot be met. RIGHT AWAY!

We totally agree with you. You should have been fed at 6:00 the first time around.

We have learned that walking on top of Maw doesn't work nearly as well as if somebody yaks. Or if Gatsbi and Dorf get into a hissy spitty fit. Or if we go in and out of the cat flap like a gazillion and 11 times. THAT really works. Flap flap, flap flap, flap flap. She got up early this morning. Yup.

see you there! said...

You'd think the woman would know better than to flap her hand at royalty. I think she was raised in a country without them, poor thing.

The Hume's are SO hard to train!

Ugh I know! This morning I felt there was no reason for me to wait the extra 8 minutes the LL likes to sleep late and started yelling at her that it was stinky goodness time. Luckily she got up because when I'm interested in food she gives me as much as I want these days.

Ok, we had to look up blue tits. We don't have those here. We have titmice here. Paw is probably familiar with blue tits.

Pearl, it's clear you must submit your list of House Rules before this situation gets worse. Don't they understand who's in charge there?

Pearl, we are shocked and dismayed that this horrible treatment that you and Sweet Pumpy received this morning. I think you should try again tomorrow morning... start out gentle as you have... they obviously need to be retrained. It happens here too.

Fritzamus Maximus said...

Oh, Pearl! That sounds awful! I have never heard of such insubordination! I trust that you and Pumpy have punished your Feeders accordingly.

Humans can be so selfish sometimes!
Don't they know that we only have little tummies so we can't eat a lot in one go and need regular feeding. Love to you and Pumpy. FAZ

I usually start in about 5:00 AM. I cry and howl. Momma actually says SNUT UP, PATCHES, to little me! I still can't believe she can be so rude!

You've got it, Pearl. WHY do they not respond to our commands in a timely manner?
