Kitties, Sticky Person and his mommy came over yesterday. All three of them soon went out to the local Wetlands Park administered by TVA. (There is also a very old cemetery there with human folks born in the mid 1700's buried there). Mommy took her DSLR and took some pictures. They were wet shirted and damp faced and wet haired with sweat when they got back as it was it quite hot and HUMID out that early in the morning when they headed out for the hike into the wetlands.
They come home several hours later, and James got to play with his toys that my Mommy keeps for him here while Mom made them both lunch. James and his mom both came into the kitchen to keep mom company while she did the lunch preparations.
Kitties! THIS visit, the Sticky Person's mommy said that she wanted to teach the baby not to play with my fuds, so that I can eat at will while they are here. Till yesterday, mommy always took it up and put it up where there baby could not reach it. So my fuds and water were down on the floor on my placemat as usual. Fast forward, and mom and Sticky Person's mom were talking and laughing in the kitchen while James was walking about opening cabinets and the trash can. ONE second, of our inattention...eyes not following the baby in other words as he wandered in the kitchen, and the baby went straight to my fuds which were about a foot away. He stooped down on his way past, grabbed a handful and popped them into his mouth! And chewed! He has 15 teeth now so he did great with MY kibble.
I believe my mom is the one who first noticed the little booger had MY FUDS! She alerted the Sticky Person's mom who became doubled over laughing (same as my mom) (what an outrage!!) and both mom and she kept ON laughing and saying "He's eating it"! Mom has a video of that part and no clue how to post it.
His tiny fist was pried open and the fuds were taken out that weren't already in his mouth. She opened her hand to show Mom how many more kibbles were left, and the baby quickly reached into his mom's hand and got a few more and popped them in! Mom and mom's daughter-in-law were just in tears laughing, trying to get them out of his hand. James was doing open mouthed chewing. There was no use trying to get it out of his mouf, so they gave him a milk chaser.
That was one of THE best visits for THEM ever, she said. Now me, I have a different slant on it. That was MY fudables kitties. MINE. Hard earned with eternal nightly and daily vigilance to keep mom safe! What happens? I wuz robbed!!!
NB: Mommy has an iMac, iPhone, iPad, iPod and so on. Not the same as a PC so those rules can't apply here, darn it. Videos can't be chosen from the Photo library on the Mac and inserted in the "insert video" icon in the blog. Mom hasn't learned how to get videos to Tube. And even if she did know, she's too addle pated to know how to get them OFF UTube and onto the blog. She is useless...I keep telling ya. There's a way to do it, yes. Just no one here has shown mom how. She did manage to get a video of the last bit where the baby sneaked another bite from his mom's hand and started back to the kitchen to raid the fudable bowl again. Mom took it and put it up. Heeeee.
