Are My Cats Just Winding Me Up? ...
Or can they really be THAT hungry?
They want treats ALL.THE.TIME. Every single time I go into the kitchen they come from wherever they were (apparently sound asleep sometimes) and meow and meow and meow.
And I usually cave in and give them treats. A few. After all these are not growing kittens.
Earlier today I gave them some REAL MEAT. Then I took my portion of that real meat and went to sit down to eat. They come with me. Velvet got up on the sofa with me and watched my plate. Or rather watched the meat on the plate. T.O.M. sat on the floor and started at my hand conveying the food to my mouth as if his eyes were riveted to my skin.
These cats have food out all the time. And they eat it. Now, maybe they don't love it, but they eat it well.
But every single time I go into the kitchen they convince me they really are starving.
And I feel so guilty. How can I eat and not feed them?
But as I said, they are not kittens. And I don't want them to be fat cats.
They are good weight, in good condition. But either they are starving or I am a sucker.
Which can it be?
