The Mom Speaks:
I can tell my “boys” are related to me. They have absolutely no patience at all!
Here’s a picture of Shakespeare checking out the new bag of food I brought home.
Now here’s what he did to the bag. If you look closely you will see a hole that dear Shakespeare made in the bag because I wasn’t moving fast enough to open it! He was also checking to make sure it was made in the USA!
Then there’s Hemingway. He decided to just help himself to the container where I had put their food.
Yes, when it comes to eating, these guys have no patience at all!!!

This is funny and proves your cats are no different than most.
They are typical boys!
Have you been starving those boys? That must be some super nommy food. We haven’t tried Halo food. We might have to have our dad get us some. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
We love Halo food. Mom started getting it for us ‘cuz she likes us to have food without a lot of additives. We don’t know what that is but we do know we like this food!
Marty and I do that also, mom yells at us to wait but we know she likes it when we help her unpack the groceries. But she does seem to really get upset when she finds a hole in the loaf of bread. Take care, Sami
Shakespeare here: Sami, I LOVE bread! Mom knows she can’t leave bread anywhere near me ‘cuz I’ll get into it for sure. I think that’s how I first learned to rip open packages. 🙂
Binga is the same way! And you should have heard her today, when my human fed us an hour-plus later than usual – she really pitched a fit!
We’re both really good at reminding Mom if she is late feeding us. Humans should realize that we are supposed to be fed right away!
That’s what I do when I see a box of chocolates…
Mom does the same thing with chocolates! 🙂
Our new kitten Alice is the only one in a long time who tries to break into the food bags. Yesterday, she was gnawing on a new bag of litter! OMC
Alice has to learn that it’s best to chew into the bags that contain food. Of course she’s still young. She’ll learn and we can help her if necessary. 😉
Poor guys……so hungry they had to tear open a bag and raid the container – looks like it must be pretty yummy stuff though!!
Kitty Hugs, Sammy
Mom here: Sammy, the boys are not hungry in spite of what they might try to tell you. They are telling “tails”. 😉
Haha! They were really eager to get into that bag! I love the picture of Hemingway with his head in the container!
Hemingway here: I love having my head in the container. Oh the smells……oh the crunchy pieces……almost as good as rolling in nip.
Doesn’t your human realise that if you haven’t eaten for at least 5 minutes you are actually starving? We hadn’t heard of Halo food – is it very tasty?

We love Halo food. Mom started getting it for us recently. She said it doesn’t have a lot of additives (whatever that means) so she likes giving it to us. Humans just don’t understand the concepts of waiting even a minute for food!
H & S…we haz noe patients either N itz knot coz we iz knot docterz !!
We’re finding that most fur people and humans don’t have patience so we figure we’re pretty normal. 🙂
Huh. That looks like our house too. The mom has to put our foods away fast or else we’ll chew a hole in the bag!
We keep reminding Mom that we’re just helping her.
Don’t worry Hemingway and Shakespeare….one of my cats (Siri) LOVES to eat more than anything. We got her from the Siamese Rescue Center, so I think that in her previous situation, she must have worried a lot about getting something to eat.
Our male cat Keona has been with us since he was very little. He likes to eat a little and then come back later. That’s not working! We have to put his bowl away so she won’t eat all of his food too.
There is a picture of Siri in my post “sleeping sink cat.” You can clearly see that she isn’t starving (even though she still thinks she is). 🙂
Before Siri, we had Anika (Keona’s little sister). He loved her more than anything. It broke his heart when she died. You can see them together in, “Love Lives Beyond Death.”
I think cats are wonderful. You can tell your mom that!!
We think you are a wonderful human ‘cuz you have lots of love to give. We told Mom about those web pages and she cried when she read about Anika. She lost her old buddy of almost 19 years and then a few months later she lost two kittens she had rescued. Then she found us and rescued us and the doctor lady and Mom were both so happy that we were healthy. I guess that’s why she doesn’t get too mad at us when we get impatient about not being fed on time. She would rather have us eating than not. We think Siri and Keona are both gorgeous. Please tell them hi from us and Mom. By the way, Mom has a good friend who has a daughter named Siri. That’s a lovely name. Thanks so much for writing to us.
