Still Trying to Outwit Mummy

Greetings, Fellow Felines!

Possum here again, with Pixie looking over my shoulder. We still haven't figured out a way to outwit our Human and get round our new feeding schedule. We haven't stopped trying though.

This morning, when Mummy set down My food on the balcony, and tried to lure Pixie away and shut Me out there, I didn't fall into the trap. I backed away and into the living-room. But Mummy was too quick for Pixie (who isn't up to full speed yet). She switched the feeding-bowls and put Pixie's on the balcony and shut her out there and then put my bowl down in the kitchen.

Of course I ate. I always do, even when it's Me who gets shut on the balcony. But Pixie doesn't like to feel cooped up (at least, not all by herself) and when she's shut up on the balcony on her own, she doesn't like to eat. So Mummy only got half of what she wanted.
She tried not to show her disappointment, of course, but we can read her like a book.
I wonder what She'll try next...

Maybe Mummy could cuddle with one of you while the other eats? Or maybe have Mummy sit between the both of you while you eat? We like to switch food too (Cosmo is on a Urinary diet) so our pawrents keep watch while we eat...sometimes they get distracted and that's when we switch. Heehee.

She's tried that, Whisppy. But when she cuddles one of us, you know, then the other starts to feel neglected and stops eating. As for sitting between us - she can do that in the evening, but not at breakfast time when she's got to get ready for work.

Ahh...I see. Then I suppose your Mom doesn't have too much of a choice but to do what she's been doing. She's already trying her best so maybe you guys could give her a break? At least until Pixie gains her full strengh. :)
We call it the ESS coz it's shaped like an "S". :p
