As I’ve mentioned before, Sadie and I are living with my aunt and uncle (and their two cats) right now. Things are going great there, and Sadie really loves them both. My aunt is a teacher, so she gets home a lot earlier than I do, which is nice for Sadie...so she doesn’t have to wait as long to go out and eat. Some nights, however, my aunt has things to do after school. Last night was one of those nights. But luckily it was an “early” day at work, and I got home around 6. When I arrived home, Sadie was at the door waiting for me, which meant my aunt stopped home before she went out again. Sadie stays in my room while I’m at work. I’m sure she wouldn’t do anything bad, to the cats or the house, but it just gives the animals their own “alone” time. Plus, it keeps Sadie from eating the cats’ food and/or poop! Haha.
When I walked in, I didn’t see a note or anything from my aunt. I looked at the cats’ bowls, and they were empty. Then I saw that Sadie’s bowl was still on the floor. (We usually pick it up if she is done with eating for the day.) So, I thought no one had been fed. I figured my aunt came home, took Sadie out, and left again. So I fed the cats, and then fed Sadie. Everyone ate like they were starving. I guess I shouldn’t have assumed they hadn’t eaten. Maybe I could have waited for my aunt to come home...but I wasn’t sure what time that would be.
I’m sure you all see where this story is going...my aunt came home and I asked her if she fed the animals before she left. “Of course I did!” Oh, crap. Hahaha. You know Sadie and the cats were thinking, “Man, she’s stupid! Look, if we give her this sad, pathetic face, she’ll think we haven’t eaten! And we’ll get more food!!!!” Yeah, well, it worked. My little chubby corgi got TWO dinners last night. And man did she have to go to the bathroom this morning hahaha. Around 8 am, she decided she would just sit and stare at me until I woke up. Good times.
I’ve asked my aunt to leave a note if another situation like this comes up haha. Just to be on the safe side!
