    Hi there!

    This is the Cats_Meow Echo!

    Welcome to all and feel free to post your loves, your hates, your problems a JK>your joys regarding your cats, your dogs and just about any pets (well, may JK>we can exclude pet rocks? <bg>)

    How about the picture of the cat, with an angry look on its face,
    sitting on the couch, scolding its owner...saying:

    1) My water bowl has a sip missing.
    2) My food dish is 15/16 full.
    3) I have 2 clumps in my litter box.

    And, you want to sit down on the couch?? Think again!! <BG>

    Oh no! You mean my cat is NOT the only one who starts bugging the heck out of me when her dish is not "overflowing" with food??? Lol.. Make that times two.. both of my cats do that constantly.

    "MOM!!! We are being STARVED HERE"

    hahaha

    Meanwhile, the vet says that all my pets are 'overweight'. Geez (Lol) I tried
    telling him they are more "Romanesque" in their stature.. eh, you know the type
    I'm sure haha - he didn't buy it either.

    There was one cartoon, where the cats called 9-1-1 -- and when
    described that they were left alone without food (you could see a tiny
    hole of the bottom of the dish, between the mountain of food surrounding
    it), the 9-1-1 operator told the cats "You're gonna die!!", and they
    sobbed "I know!!" :P

    That's like when they first diagnosed my gastrointestinal illnesses.
    The doctor said I had to watch what I ate. I told him "I do...from the
    plate to the mouth". He wasn't happy with my answer. <G>

    Hi Daryl,

    Hi, Janis...

    sobbed "I know!!" :P

    Poor Kitties :) :)

    I saw a cartoon where this doctor asks this elderly man, who doesn't
    have his dentures in, and is nude from the waist down, "Do you want the
    Deluxe Colonoscopy that your insurance may not pay for...or the Economy Colonoscopy, with the hamster and Go-Pro camera??!". The S.P.C.A.
    would be all over that one. :P Or the other cartoon of a guy in a scuba
    like suit, and the doctor said "We thought you might want to meet our
    colon doctor before we minaturized him". :P

    Speaking of which, I had both a colonoscopy and EGD this morning. I
    couldn't finish the prep work, as I had so much stomach acid...but
    thankfully, the colon was clear enough for him to do the procedure, and
    the upper GI. They found one polyp, and I have to call on Wednesday for
    the biopsy results. It feels good to eat and drink again...but the
    weather is not good around here tonight. We're under a Particularly
    Dangerous Situation Tornado Watch, and have had at least one tornado
    touchdown in west central Arkansas, where several were injured earlier
    this afternoon.

    It reminds me of the dog in the vets office, where the vet has stuck
    the thermometer up the dogs butt (the only way they can take it), and
    the dog growls "One day, Mr. Vet, it's going to be my turn...and you
    know what they say about paybacks"!! <G>

    That's like when they first diagnosed my gastrointestinal illnesses.
    The doctor said I had to watch what I ate. I told him "I do...from the JK>> plate to the mouth". He wasn't happy with my answer. <G>

    I bet! :) Here, I have the opposite problem, always have.. My body just burn JK>up food. I eat a ton and never seem to gain weight.

    I think I found all the weight. :P But, I believe in the "balanced
    diet" -- in the belly and the buttocks. <G>

    We thought our cat was such a dainty eater, as if she walked away, the
    dog would devour her food. After we re-homed the dog, we found out what
    a finicky and messy eater she actually was!!

    Never mind the cartoon of the cat with the $20 bill, demanding that
    its owner buy "some food that I like". I guess he sold the dog on eBay.

    What gets me is that with two cats. Each cat seems to think that the other cat's food must taste better. Even though it's the same cat food.

    haha.. true... sometimes I see Lulu (aptly named by the aspca when she was just
    little kitten Lol) standing in front of Lola's food dish.. as if to say, go ahead, try to get past me to eat! haha she's about twice the height of lola.. and quite a solid kitty, no fat though that I can see...

    This was the original litter we adopted, only two here now remain since two of them took off for better food I guess... sad since they were all such beauties.

    You can see the size difference between Lulu and Lola :)

    Lola now has quite the hmmm.. beer gut haha

    And, if they aren't stealing from someone else, it just "doesn't have
    the same flavor". Years ago, my Mom would eat cottage cheese, and her
    cat would climb in her lap, giving her the "stink eye" until she let her
    lick the juice out of the container. But, if you put that in her dish,
    she wouldn't touch it.

    I can put down two pieces of the same meat. Demi (18 month old female) will look at hers and then try to nose Pandora ( 14 year old female) away from her piece of meat. Pandora is not above smacking Demi upside the head if she gets too pushy. :)

    Pandora for some reason will drink water by sticking her paw in the water dish and then pull her wet paw up and lick the water off. She repeats this procedure
    until she's had enough to drink. Demi just drinks normally out of the bowl.

    Both of my cats drink normally out of the bowl in general... but if you are refilling the bowl, or just adding some water to it, they insist on drinking it
    as you pour it in, like it is coming from a stream Lol

    Drives me nuts sometimes :)

    I saw a video where a cat did just that...and a picture with the
    caption "Could you please push my food dish closer?? I'm too weak from hunger!!". <G>

    If there's a "tiny hole" in the middle of the food, where you see the
    bottom of the dish, the cat swears it is being starved to death, and
    threatens to report you to the SPCA. :P
