I Should Never Leave Them Home Alone

Posted By on September 29, 2009

I plan to write a whole long post about my trip this past weekend to Atlanta. I had an awesome time! I wish I was back there already. I already told Ali I plan to look up flights and plan a trip there again SOON. Thank God for AirTran Airways and their cheap flights from Chicago to Atlanta!

But I’m still recovering from all the good (and UNHEALTHY) food I ate, not enough sleep, a lot of beer and the fact that I’m now back at work and not on vacation. I’m at work and not watching Ali’s daughter Bella draw rainbows and mice and a pot of gold and tell me all about her imaginary friend Eneed, or CutieHead Cutie Eneed Martell as he’s now known. And he’s some imaginary friend, traveling all the way from Toronto to Atlanta to be with Bella. (Although, Bella is that cute and funny, that I’m not surprised he came with her.)

Anyway, while I was away, my friend Lara came over to check on my cats. She loves cats and wanted to hang out with mine. And any crazy person that wants to hang out with my cats is MORE THAN WELCOME!

So before I left town, I left Lara a note and I also left a new bag of treats out on the counter, for her to bribe them with. Because my cats may be idiots, but I expect them to be gracious idiots to any of my guests.

When I got home yesterday, I saw that Lara wrote a note about said treats. Said she found this on the ground when she got to my place:

cat treats

They ATE threw the thick-ish plastic bag and devoured all the treats. And they wonder why I call them idiots and why I try to pawn them off on anyone who will take them.


Come back tomorrow to hear about my trip and my continuing saga this year with meeting Bravo reality show contestants.

    Atlanta is a good place. Glad you didn’t float away in the rain.

  3. Hey, I left my cats those Party Mix treats when I went on my honeymoon! I figured it would make them feel better to have something called Party Mix! while I was away. Turns out, they didn’t care. Well, they cared, but not as much as YOUR cats, apparently. Your cats seem to love the Party Mix.

    Silly kitties!!!!! However, you do remember that Simba at through a closed/new Entemann’s coffee cake box one time to get at it. I guess he has a sweet tooth too!

    My cat has deemed herself too good for treats that come in a bag. She only likes freeze dried fucking Mahi Mahi. I should send a kitty care package to your cats containing all the treats Gelsey will not eat.

    (who, by the way has found a new home at Bill & Len’s, I don’t think she’ll ever come home)

    Yes, your cats are quite scary. I’m glad you had a fun vacation! It’s almost never fun to come back to work post-vacay. Hang in there!

    You met Micheal from Project Runway!!! I’m so jealous.

    I just heard noises upstairs that were making me nervous, but realized that the dog was RIGHT HERE so he couldn’t be getting in to anything. Then, I remembered leaving the cat treats out, rather than putting them in the cat proof cabinet and walked upstairs to find the exact same scene picture above. You want two more cats? Easily bribed with treats? I’ll pay their airfare.

    haha, looks familiar – we buy Rubin dog treats that come in a similar pack, and he will DESTOy them if he possibly can!

    Yeah, your cats are not allowed in my house. They’ll tear up the… wait, there’s NOTHING IN MY HOUSE right now.

    My cat has done the exact same thing. I can’t buy those kind of treats anymore – they’re like kitty crack. Not only does she refuse to eat her own food when they’re about, she’ll even eat them from strangers (okay, my friends) hand.

  16. tracey says:

    I have idiotic cats, too. They eat through bags, even when there isn’t a cat treat inside.

    Stupid cats.
