Here it is, 10:45 pm in St. Louis, and I only just now learned that today is Black Cat Appreciation Day. Clawdia has definitely NOT been feeling appreciated today. Although I left her with wet food in her dish and a bowl of dry food, she was "starved" when I got home from visiting with Donna at the hospital. I promptly fed her the usual quarter of a can of Fancy Feast. It was even salmon, her favorite. She immediately snarfed it down, while I was putting it into her dish, and asked for more. I gave her another quarter of the can, which she finished just as quickly, begging me to do it again. I put down a THIRD quarter of the can, and she ate more than half of that! No, people, I'm not starving this poor cat. She actually has a pudgy little tummy, but she was really, really wanting more of her wet food this evening!
