Who Gets Fed First

Put down that camera and feed me!

Here I am sitting in my cat tree, waiting for dinner after Saturday’s mad dash. If I look a little vexed in this photo, it’s not just because my human is taking photos of me instead of dishing it out the food — I am a little shocked that so many of you actually thought I would get fed last! That is so not the case. I always get fed first because I am a very slow eater. Also because I rule. Binga gets fed second, mainly because by then she is frantic. Then Boodie gets her food last because… well, she’s pretty much last in line for everything. But never fear, if she finishes before Binga, she will steal some of her food too. Yes, Binga growls but Boodie ignores her — and she does not even get smacked!

Here are those of you who guessed correctly:

The Florida Furkids

Katnip Lounge


The Island Cats

Fraidy Kats

That is just five out of 44 commenters who got all three of us right. High paw to you!

    Hum…… I remembers saying you got fed first too, didn’t I? 😉
    Bugsy here gets fed first, and he gest locked up too, otherwise he will eat everyone’s food! Not the same reason but…… :mrgreen:
    Good job on being the first in line!!

    Wow! We blew that! We thought you’d have more peace if the riff-raff were fed 1st! Have a good week!

    Rats! I missed the contest but I’d have definitely guessed that YOU get fed first, Sparkle! I am fed second, as Morticia is quite demanding and meows her head off when MomKatt’s dishing out the stinky goodness.

    It seems the squeaky wheel (cat?) gets the gooshy fud, eh?

    Good to know you get fed first :)
    We know you rule 😉
    We kitties get fed in the same order too.
    Tillie,Tiger,Julie,Treasure,JJ and then Georgia.
    It actually has to do with where our bowls are relative to the food container.
    We always go to the same spots :)

    Don’t even get me started about the intricacies of dinnertime for the fab five, it would take up more space than you have in your comment box – LOL!!! You’ve given me and idea for a post, thanks Sparkle :-)

    Darn Mom for being incommunicato for the holidays. We wish we could have guessed. I eat slow too in fact it takes me 5x as long to eat as the rest of the kitties and Mom has to hand feed me. (yes she says she spoils me!)

  9. says

    We blew it, and besides we only guessed who was first. Concats to all those who got it correct. Some of us are really, really slow eaters, and the three young kits always stick their heads in our bowls and steal what’s left. Mom used to try to keep that from happening, but now says that it is every cat for him and herself. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
