Yesterday my brother and I both came home from work late. Our American cat was sitting by his foodbowl, waiting to be fed, crying the whole time. Meow meow meow meow. But our Israeli cat, she was like “#%& u!”. She knocked over the dry food and fed herself! She’s a survivor. I swept the kibbles into one pile, offered it to the American cat, and then he ate, too. He cleaned up the floor just like a dog would. Problem solved.
