Geordi and Velcro have the dry food bowl there and it's always full. It's one of those that you fill and it lasts for a week or more. They share a can of stinky wet in the afternoon when I get home, usually around 1:00. Also, both cats understand the word "Time" because when it's time for stinky wet, we say "Geordi, is it TIME?" and he runs to the kitchen and waits, meowing and making a LOT of noise.
Scene: geordicat, sitting on the couch enjoying a cup of tea and a food item. Makes no difference what it is.
Geordi: OOO! Food! Food! Food? Share? Share? Please? Look how cute I am! *reaches paw out to try go grab my food*
Me: No, this is MINE. No, cats don't like apples. You want to smell? Cats don't eat app... oh. Guess I'm wrong.
Geordi: Hey, this is good. More? More? I'm so hungry! Why do you get to eat, and we don't?
Velcro: *opens one eye, sighs, and goes back to catnap*
Geordi: Food? Can we eat? What are you drinking? Share? Share? Share?
Me: Geez, you pain in the butt cat! It's TEA! Cats don't drink tea! You want to smell? See? Dumb cat. I can't believe you are drinking tea, you freaky furbutt. Go bug geordicat jr. He's eating broccoli. See if you like that - WHAT CAT EATS BROCCOLI?
? What is WRONG with you?
Geordi: Food? Food? HUNGRY!! It's TIME! It's TIME!!
Me: It is NOT!! It's only 9 am!! You need to stay out of the catnip!
Geordi: Catnip? CRACK!! KITTY CRACK!! KITTY CRACK!!
I go make sure the feeder bowl is full, and they have fresh water. Geordi of course thinks that if I'm in the kitchen, he's going to be fed. If my son is in the kitchen, he WILL get fed. My son drops stuff on the floor and Geordi inhales it. Dumb cat eats anything. He really likes potato chips.
