Is the Bowl Seven-Eighths Full or One-Eighth Empty?

by Carlton Cat

I heard the sound of doors being opened and sachets being ripped open. Yippee, I thought, tea time!

I ran into the kitchen and slid to a halt beside my bowl.

Umph. The bowl was only seven-eighths full. The Mrs was closing the cupboard door. I meowed loudly and looked at my bowl. My eyes said: ‘I’m eating nothing until you have filled my bowl to the top.’

The Mrs stared back. I stared at her. I looked at my bowl again. She shook her head. I sat on my haunches and looked accusingly up at her. I meowed loudly again. She continued shaking her head. I meowed louder.

Then she said: ‘Oh for goodness sake, Carlton,’ and retrieved another sachet of food.

  1. Maybe she thinks you need to go on a diet Carlton.

  2. It has to be filled just right...

  3. This is why I've decided that cats are tool users despite the lack of opposable thumbs. We humans are the tools. ~grin~
