Conversation

"You expect me to eat this swill?"

"Well, I tried to get your favourite but the stores have been all out of it."

"I can hold out. I can starve. Watch me."

"I don't know why you think you're some kind of gourmand."

"I am."

"No, you're not. When I met you first you'd never seen a piece of meat. You didn't know omega 3's from a hole in the ground."

"Well, at least I know what I like now. Especially salmon."

"A far cry from salmon you were raised. Remember your bread and water days?"

"No. My taste buds are now refined. This substitute is unacceptable."

"And another thing - I don't like you dropping the food in a trail all through the house. I. Get. The. Message."

"Obviously not enough to try a little harder, aren't there like 9 more stores to visit to see if they have the salmon?"

"A whole day? You want me to search for a whole day?"

"Well, if you'd rather wait until my ribs are sticking out through my fur....."

"OK. OK."

  1. Now, I have to admit that Tyke is not quite that picky, thank goodness. I think your conversation with Ansa is hilarious :)

  2. I've created a monster, Irene, I had to work so hard to get her to eat dog food (and not BREAD- that's all the abusers fed her) and now she's picky. I have to laugh.

  3. I had to laugh too. Just like my two rescue Siamese cats who never knew where the next meal was coming from. Now they'll eat nothing except fresh uncooked hake for breakfast and prawns for dinner.

    They just know we're pushovers, eh.

    It took me forever to get her to eat dog food, trying different brands, and now she's hooked like a heroin addict on this salmony thing. I must say though her coat is gleaming and she was a sad and sorry mess when she came to me.

    Love your posh Siamese!!!

  8. Ungrateful creature. She'll be wanting caviar and oysters next. And not just any old caviar and oysters.

  9. It was liverwurst today Nick and it only gets better until I get to the shops and find the bloody salmon.

  11. I just tried to give Ramona salmon for breakfast and she wouldn't eat it because salmon is served for dinner. Breakfast is tuna and I should know that by now. Also, it had better not be cold and it has to be served in the right spot which is different every day.
    And she won't eat too close to her brother, Harper. She says he slurps.
    And sometimes I have to dip my finger in it and let her lick it off a few times before she will stoop to eating this expensive gourmet cat food which I am privileged to buy for her.
    Obviously I am talking about a cat here.
    Harper will eat anything, anytime which is why he is one third bigger than her.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
