Inside Buddy Foster's World

Mittens Blagdon: Tales from a Perpetually Hungry Cat

 Are we in for a treat today! Mittens is going to talk about food!  I love food, too.  Mittens is my first cousin once removed on the man’s side, just as Beau was my first cousin once removed on Mommy’s side. We are a cat loving family.
When Buddy Foster asked me to write a guest blog, I wasn’t sure I would have anything interesting to write about. Don’t get me wrong, I love my life and my people, but I spend the bulk of my days thinking up creative ways to get my people to feed me more. You see, I’m a VERY hungry cat.

I have 4 people. There’s:
the one who feeds me,
the one who controls the red light,
my mommy,
and danger.
I love them all for different reasons! The one who feeds me is great; she is the easiest to wake in the morning. I only have to knock the glass of water off her night stand to get her going in the morning. She’s grumpy about that at first, but will generally get up and feed me. The one who controls the red light is tons of fun, my beloved bright light comes out to play whenever he is around. My Mommy is wonderful; she cuddles me every night and buys the best catnip. Danger is ok, but I’ve discovered that I like him the most while he is sleeping. His name speaks volumes about our relationship.
One day I heard my people taking about my belly and how it seemed to be growing since my homecoming. The one who feeds me used words like, “pregnant” and “sick.” Then they took me to the vet who poked me in places I won’t tell you about. When I returned from this terrible experience, things got even worse. They started saying the word “diet” and my formerly delicious food was swapped out for the fish flavour dust bites. It was awful. I spent my days dreaming of open tubs of Becel butter being left out on the counter and gravy laden plates stacked up by the sink. My people started being very careful about leaving anything tasty out for me to sample and there was only the dust bites. After about 2 months of this torture, the one who feeds me decided that the dust bites were not helping my belly shrink. Thank god for that! She started buying a slightly less dry version of the dust bites.
Another month went by with no change to my belly. I meowed in protest, A LOT! Then, a return visit to the vet.  Great. Just when I had given up all hope, they started using new words. “Pleasantly plump”, “Garfield” and “content.” The next day, MY FOOD CAME BACK. It was heaven in a steel bowl. I’ve never purred louder in my whole kitty life. I get a little less of my food each day now, but I’m not complaining! Anything is better than the dust bites.
Well that’s it for me, I’m off to devise new ways to get more in that glorious bowl.

      What a neat idea with the paw prints. Are they paw prints? Where did you find them?

      🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾 just found them on my android phone!! So I can write my post on my laptop, as usual, and then bring up draft on my phone and add footprints. This is great. Buddy can use it for rating things. Maybe products. How exciting. Thank you for the inspiration.
