Dampening down Louis Catorze’s Orijen is such a pain in the arse. I don’t mind doing it in principle, but I take exception to the unreasonably exacting specifications that we are required to meet.
Food can be rejected for any of the following reasons:
⁃ Too big a portion: NON (goes stale)
⁃ Too small a portion: NON (is eaten quickly and then he frightens us with the creepy staring)
⁃ Too dry: NON
⁃ Too wet: NON
⁃ Too-hot water: NON
⁃ Too-cold water: NON
⁃ Water not sunk in enough: NON (leaves pellets too crunchy)
⁃ Water sunk in too much: NON (leaves pellets too soft)
Cat Daddy despises waste of any sort, yet even he leaves the hot tap running whilst taking the Orijen out of the cupboard, so that it’s at optimum temperature for his boy’s precious food. And, if I am the one feeding the little sod, Cat Daddy reminds me, “Warm water. Don’t forget, warm water on his food. He likes it at about 70 degrees, and by the time it hits his bowl it will have cooled down enough for him to eat it.”
If you think we’re pathetic for going to such lengths, you would probably be right. That said, I challenge anyone to stand strong against this level of creepy staring, especially from a black vampire cat, in the run-up to Hallowe’en.
