Repost Friday: Bad, Bad, Person

Au on the stairs
When Au asked for biscuits on Sunday evening, I discovered we had none in the house. It was an awful moment. There was Au, sitting on the stairs, saying meow? in a friendly voice. I confessed and apologised. Au smiled, thinking it a good joke. Then, when he realised I really meant it, he drooped.

Au lay on the staircase, looking at me pathetically. How, his eyes said to me, could I have done such a thing? How was he, he said pathetically, a lovely and loving little cat, going to survive the night?

I offered cat food from a foil packet, tuna for people, and his all time favourite ham, but Au wanted something crunchy.

Luckily we were rescued. Our neighbour Umi who lives across the street feeds strays in her back garden. She donated some biscuits to Au who ate them with a satisfied crunch!

Since then we've stocked up on biscuits so the crisis is over. Au has forgiven me but I still feel guilty. I'm a bad, bad person...

That was a repost from Tuesday, May 01, 2007.

Or at the very least, Au has pretended to forgive you. ;-)

Yes, my cats would agree to the fact that you are a bad person, to forget this poor little cat's crunches ! lol !

I bought little bags of (very) good wet catfood and Rosie ate a little. She is no steak fan, sometimes she eats a little piece of chicken otherwise she always wants to eat dry food ! I keep her in my room with a litterbox and some food and watch her ! That's all I can do besides giving her water with a syringe.

Awww, don't feel bad. It happens to all of us. Au was just playing up, knowing you'd feel guilty.

Oh dear! No biscuits. How could you! We would show mum our displeasure too.
