I’ve been feeding the cats wet food in the evening. There might be a slight health advantage to it, but mostly I like the sounds they make when I’m dishing it out. It’s like I’m tormenting them.

Anyway, it annoys me that I can’t get every bit of food out of that can. I scoop it out, scrape it out, then after they start eating I fill it with a little water, swirl it around and tell them the soup course has arrived. Yet still, there are bits of food that stay behind. Lloyd said I should invent a spatula just for this purpose.


I googled ‘cat food can spatula’, but someone has already made one. ‘Bye, millions. However, they don’t sell it anymore. At the pet store they did have a spoon with a corner-thing, but it was stiff plastic.

Gordman’s though, had tiny spatulas. Woo-hoo!

Huh. That wasn’t a good story. Let’s just watch those cats again. Ralph had eye surgery again today. Can you notice a difference?

    Awwww…’s like they’re singing in rounds!

    I bet you could train them—you could be Lauren Night & the Kitts (that was supposed to be a take off of Gladys Knight & the Pips…but it didn’t come off right.)

    I like how the still shot looks like Ralph is dancing with me. He’s a tall boy.
