Repost Friday: Bad, Bad Person

This repost is from 1st May 2007

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...

Aunty Ellen,
Yes, we agree. You're bad bad bad person. Never ever run out of biscuit, you hear me? Ever ever ever. It's a major major catastrophe! har har har *evil laughs*

I know how Au felt!
That "no treats" has happened here too!
Glad your neighbor shared some with you!
Kisses and hugs

What a face! Au looks so dramatic! (I am sure I'd get the exact same looks around here if that ever happened!)

He does look so sad and accusing. Eric is not happy with me because I have been reducing their biscuits and now have them on wet food alone. Flynn is happy because he prefers wet food, but Eric prefers biscuits every time.
You asked which state we live in. We are not in the US but in the UK. We live near Plymouth in the SW of England.

Poor Au! He looked both hopeful and sad. Sending lots of virtual kibbles his way.

Poor Starving Au! Thank goodness you found an emergency backup, or ir may have been your bones he'd be crunching in the middle of the night!

That reminds me of the time my dog Missy was begging for a pretzel and I ate the last one right in front of her. She looked so disappointed I had to go open another bag and give her one.
