On Strike

Scoop turning his back to usScoop has been so spoilt in the last few days with turkey, lamb and tinned tuna for people (he needed a bit of extra oil in his diet to keep his coat glossy, his claws sharp, and his bones strong) that he has firmly turned his back on the idea of cat food – and me!

Here he is, the little monster, turning his back on me because I refused to replace his bowl of crunchies with a treat.

I’m not giving in, and Scoop will have to eat his cat food before he gets any more treats. I guess he’ll cave at 7 o’clock when he realises he won’t get his share of our chicken dinner tonight unless he toes the line.

I can feel his displeasure! I find it hard to be strong with my cats, they have the knack of instilling guilt...

Won't last long!

Our tummy usually gets the better of us when we go on strike. We find that if we eat a tiny bit of what we don't want, then yak it up, we get better food. We can wrap mum around our paws.

He does look a bit miffed!

Guess what? My mom person & I have created a blog, www.PetBlogsUnited.com, and we'd love it if you would come over and check it out.

It's a great place for pet bloggers to find each other, and get an opportunity to be a featured blog!

I would love to do that with Arthur, but unfortunately I have Mr. G. in my back, who feeds his little darling secretly with all kind of unhealthy stuff ! I told him already that a cat is not a garbage bin, but he is deaf ! Arthur just has to say a little "meauw" and Mr. G runs !
