Tootie - Sunni's Photo's
I’m sure this is exactly what is going through Tootie’s mind, as she begs for food every night at dinner. The last few days we’ve had soup, or hummus and flatbread. This is nothing she would want. I’m sure that she is wondering where the piece of chicken or fish is.
Our vet in CA years ago used to say it was okay to give the cats people food, as long as it was lean chicken, fish, or meat, not fried or spicy, so we got in the habit of giving them a few bites. The other two cats rarely want any, but Tootie has always been the gourmet, even since she wondered up to our door. I think she’s had “people food” all her life and she expects it. However, this cat will eat about anything. She is particularly fond of Italian food. One time we had spaghetti and she gobbled up big chunks of stewed tomatoes. I’ve never seen a cat eat tomatoes, but it didn’t seem to hurt her. However, I am careful about what she gets and how much.
Lately, she has just had this dejected look thinking she is deprived. But it is cold here again, so soup is back on the menu. Things froze again last night and the wind was awful, slamming things against the house all night and howling under the eaves and around the corners. It is still blowing today, but not as bad as last night. It is very chilly out and you would never know it is almost the end of March around here, if you didn’t look at the calendar. I hope it gets nice soon. This is unheard of for where we live.
