Someone liked food even more than Lindy does


Here is a picture of Lindy lurking under the table in case anyone might decide to drop some food.

But you might not know that her mom once had two cats, a slim, handsome, friendly fellow named Herman, with white hair and black markings; and also a little fluffy pure white kitten named Ava.
Herman's mom (who is, yes, now Lindy's mom) said to him, "Be a good boy, Hermie, and let the kitten eat first." So he did. That meant that Ava could eat as much as she wanted, because Hermie was very polite. Ava grew up to be big and fat, and quite unfriendly. Teenagers used to dare their friends to walk past her. She looked all white and harmless until she removed their ankles.

This picture of Herman and Ava was drawn a number of years ago by Hermie and Ava and Lindy's mom's youngest brother. Lindy's mom loves it, even if it is looking a little the worse for wear, because it's a realistic illustration of dinner time for Herman and Ava.

Wow! That is a fabulous cartoon picture. Such talent! Ava sounds like she was quite a character for a cat.

They can work out such an arrangement, that's interesting. It's no more the war between cats and dogs. It's a friendship gained.
Nicely Kay!

You see, it's just not right to spoil the youngest . . .

Ah Lindy and Aunty Kay, Unca Hermie sounds like a real gentleman to allow Ava to eat in peace. Lindy, you also seem like a real gentle doggie and we love you dearly. Purrs from Ginger, Shadow and Ambrose.

Friko said...

A greedy cat? Cross cats I have known many, but most of mine have been picky eaters.

Not something that applies to Millie.

Cackle! I love the cat cartoon. Jasmine lurks attentively near food, she would eat till she exploded were she able. As it is, she is VERY over weight.

So Lindy isn't an eating champ after all? I reckon my daughter's Black Lab Holly (The Eating Machine) could give Lindy a run for her money too.
