Aby-a-Day – Day 150 of 365

Of all our cats, Jacoby and Kylie are the two who seem to live to eat. Ironically, they’re also our two slenderest cats. We have to spell the words “can” and “treat” around them…and even then, I think they’ve figured out that the sounds of spelling the words means the same thing as the words themselves.

Here’s the two sharks, with their tails in the air, waiting for manna from heaven.

  1. Smeagol is the same way. He practically turns inside out at the sound of a can opening. Though, he was quite underweight when we adopted him, probably due to food allergies and IBD. He’s a perfect weight now, with the tiniest bit of fat on his tummy.


    1. Heh…well, Jake and Kylie are the two we’ve raised from kittenhood. Jake I’ve known since 2 days after he was born and Sherry called me to tell me about Scar’s last litter, and Kylie we brought home when she was 6 or 7 weeks old.
      Point being, I can personally vouch for the fact that these two have never gone hungry a day in their lives. Yet these two are the first in the kitchen at the slightest thought of food.


      1. Some cats are just like that. I know a few of the cats we had when I was growing up would just go nuts when they thought they were going to be fed something other than the free-fed kibble.
        I don’t think Smeagol was ever wanting for food, but the health issues prevented the food he was eating from actually nourishing his body. His foster mom warned me that he has a thing for wet food, as in he will eat whatever is in front of him. Too much always gives him the runs. I have to make sure he doesn’t edge over onto Hubero’s dish, as H always steps back and lets him eat.
