This tale begins late last night when Hannah realizes Patches has run out of cat food. She makes a mental note to buy some tomorrow morning, and heads to sleep after filling up his dry food.
Little did she know, the impact this would make. The wrath of Patch starts at about 5 a.m. “It is time for my wet food” He mews loudly at Hannah while she rests. “Shh, we don’t have any more.” She calmly responds. “But I need it for breakfast!” Patch howls. “You have other food. It’s okay.” She pets him and settles down. “I NEED IT right meowW!!” Patch cannot contain himself any longer.
Hannah very exhausted, shows him the bowl full of dry food and freshens his water. She also decides to let him out of the room to be mad away from her face.
It always interests me why cats act they are starving when they run out of wet food. i understand that it is delicious with the gravy and it probably tastes much better than the dry food – however, patches’ reaction and other cats in my life make me wonder what is really in the wet food to make them so angry when it’s gone. growing up with cats my whole life, i am aware that they need routine. patches is used to getting wet food first thing in the morning, but the fact that he wouldn’t calm down or go back to sleep surprised me! in the future when he only has one can left, i will buy more so he doesn’t miss a meal.
Hello and MEow! This post was written by Hannah with inspiration from her cat, Patches. You can find more of their posts on hannahshappenings.net – there is an entire page dedicated to Patches and other cat posts. He often takes over the laptop to bring his own thoughts about cathood! Patches has been in Hannah’s life for almost 3 years now 🙂 He was adopted from a shelter near where she lived and they have been inseparable! We hope you enjoyed this post about the terrors of running out of wet cat food.
