I have been stockpiling food since summer. It just seemed like a smart thing to do what with the price of gas, the economy and so forth. I wanted to have a little cushion just in case.
Since then, I’ve been trying to keep stocked up- replacing what I use from my store. That includes keeping a back up bag of cat food.
My cats are not on board with this agenda. In their minds, the food available right now might be all there is ever and they will eat as much as they can hold and then some if given the opportunity. This is the wisdom they gained from their former life on the street. That’s why I not only store the open bag in a sealed container- I put the unopened back up bag inside a garbage bag, seal that up and put the entire thing in a cupboard.
Only tonight I came home, put food in their bowls, and then saw this:
They opened the cupboard door. They chewed through the garbage bag. They chewed through the end of the food sack- the part where it’s folded over on itself and several layers thick- ate their fill, and they had the greediness to eat the food I gave them too.
There is now no place in my spaced challenged apartment they can’t get into. There is no storing of cat food possible.
I hope you know what this means, girls. If I run out of money you’ll have to make do with cereal.
