My friend has 2 cats and a dog and she had me laughing hysterically the other night describing the antics of her biggest cat. The smaller of the two, if his food bowl is empty, is not proud and will just eat the dog's kibble. But the gray one is hilarious. He tried to open up the door of the closet where friend keeps the wet food and when that didn't work, he hopped up onto the counter where she keeps the empty bowls between feedings.
He lay beside the bowl and did this whole "Oh woe is me, pity me" thing of lying down like he was starving to death with his head in the bowl as he pitifully licked the empty bowl. This is not even a thin kitty, H is a big furry boy!
As for my annoyance: DH and the boys are fans of this one anime, Clannad, in which one character likes these big round plushies called Dangos and there's even a cute little song to it. DH found some Dangos on Etsy and ordered one as a big surprise for oldest DS as he'd said he'd like a Dango for Christmas.
It arrived today, with no warning, just was left on the porch and I didn't even realize anything had been delivered until DS comes home and says "Well I know one thing I'm getting for Christmas." The person who'd sent this thing wrote on the side "Dango" with a PICTURE of the thing drawn on the side.
Really? Even when it's NOT near Christmas, it really doesn't seem like the greatest of ideas to label the outside of a box with what's inside.
I told DS "Forget you ever saw this and don't say anything about it to anyone." Yeah, not the best idea, perhaps but DH loves
gift giving and I hate to spoil it for him when he was especially excited that he was able to find this and was really looking forward to surprising DS with it on Christmas morning.
