BlackBeary’s human is standing in the kitchen, just gazing into that weird box that puffs out cold air when she opens it. What she doesn’t seem to be aware of, is totally oblivious about is that BlackBeary’s food dish is empty. For heaven’s sake, all the good bits are gone, especially the gravy. All the gravy is gone. The only stuff left is the icky-not-worth-eating junk.
“Hungry.” BlackBeary nudges her human.
“It’s only four o’clock,” her human says, not even bothering to look at the effectively empty plate. “I fed you at eleven.”
BlackBeary’s human pulls the peanut butter from the cold box and something green that has to be yucky. Most of the stuff in the cold box is yucky. And green stuff is especially yucky.
“You’ve got a full bowl of dry food.”
“And? Fancy Feast?”
The human proceeds to slather peanut butter on some long green disgusting vegetable looking thing, and then–and then, oh my god, she puts it in her mouth. Ick. So nasty. It crunches as she chews sending waves of repulsion through BlackBeary, making her want to run away. The sound of crunching vegetable is repugnant.
“There’s still food left from this morning.”
“Wha?” Obviously the crunchy vegetable thing has made BlackBeary’s human delusional. “Are you serious?”
“You didn’t eat what I gave you this morning.”
“I ate the edible stuff.”
BlackBeary’s human looks at the cabinet where the Fancy Feast is stored, as if pondering.
“Hungry. Hungry. Hungry.”
“Okay. Geeze, you’re demanding.”
“Okay. Okay. Just stop that. Please.”
Still crunching the awful vegetable, the human puts the leftover Fancy Feast plate in the sink, pulls a clean plate from one cabinet and a beautiful can of Fancy Feast from another cabinet. The snick of the can opening eases BlackBeary’s worried mind. Starvation has been averted once again.
“There you go.” Her human places the plate on the floor.
“Love you, Mom.”
