You just can't get good help these days

My cat has informed me in no uncertain terms that she does not consider food from the bottom of the bag to be up to her standards.

Here at TFG Command Central, that means the cat goes hungry! No new food till the bowl is empty.


[damn! just realized that's how I treat EVERYBODY!]

Oh, she knows. I'm not about to run out to the convenience store in the middle of the night for a new bag of food for the princess.

Sounds like our cat...the water in her bowl is acceptable (barely) only if it's freshly from the tap. Mike used to let her drink from the bathroom sink...I refuse to do that, since I'm the one who usually had to clean all the kitty hair out of the sink.

Drink from your bowl or dehydrate, kitty!

Okay, I will probably be banned for this but...

That's why I'm a dog person [ducks quickly]

Ken, I'd say the same thing, but my dog is super picky about food. I think I've go the only Weimaraner in America that turns his nose up at dog food. Also, even if he likes the food, he'll get pissed off if I put it in his crate when he doesn't want it. He'll start nosing it out off the bowl into the carpet. (My dog's such a little bitch sometimes.)

But he's just so cute - see?

Andrea -- Our cats do the same thing. They also find the "dots" that break off the x-shaped Cat Chow pieces unworthy of their attention.

That's the tip of the feline weirdness iceberg.

Amy, my dog isn't very fussy about food, but she also noses it out of the dish. She will also pick up a large mouthful, dump it on the floor, and eat it from there.
