Normally when I come in the drive way, the first thing I see is three cats (it varies who they are) laying on the back of the couch in the living room looking to see who disturbed their nap. The three dogs welcome me, very enthusiastically, as soon as I open the door. After they've settled down and I've recovered, Gizmo rubs up against me, meows and then sits right in front of his food dish and just stares at it. It doesn't matter if I've only be gone for an hour and his dish is mainly full, he still expects me to put something in it. Sometimes just the sound of the food being moved will trick him into thinking I actually fed him!
Then, Harley has to stretch and use my butt as a scratching post until I pick him up and give him some lovings. After that, the rest get up, stretch, and mosey over whenever they feel like it. I'm just the food dispenser, remember? It was different when we only had 2 cats....aww, the good ole days
like I would trade it for the world!
