My pal Fin over at Housecat Confidential has dubbed this “Scafflaw Week,” during which we kitties can flaunt all the ways in which we have broken rules. Well, that’s a problem around here, since as far as I know, we cats have no rules to break! We pretty much do whatever we want. Sometimes the humans get a little, um, “loud” about it, but we ignore them. That said, there is definitely a big rule breaker around here, and that is — my human! And she committed one of the most serious infractions just this past weekend: she went off for the evening without feeding us! Granted, it was before our dinnertime when she left, but do you think any of us got something to hold us over? No!
As dinnertime drew near, I waited patiently in the dining room, thinking that maybe my human would return and feed us on time.
But it got later and later. The cans of food sat on the counter, mocking me.
But time crawled by and we cats were getting hungrier and hungrier! I took a look at the clock and I was shocked at how late it had gotten! Hours and hours had passed!
This is what my human was faced with when she finally came traipsing through the door. I had just about faded away to nothing! That was mean of her!
BTW, Fin, when I was working up this post, I noticed that dictionary.com had it spelled “scofflaw.” Are you just being creative and making up a new word that’s especially for us cats?
