Cat still demanding feeding at the usual time

author avatar by 6 years ago

An irate cat insisted this morning that its owner get up at the usual time and feed it.

Cat Simon Purrliams, 3, explained. “I am of course aware in a dim sort of way that you humans have, as you phrase it, ‘put the clocks back.’

“But this means nothing to me. As a cat, I don’t even know what a ‘clock’ is, can’t read one, and wouldn’t even if I could.

“On the other hand I certainly know what the time is, and it’s time to be fed.

“Now get up,” he added, sinking his claws into the foot of his owner.

Speaking to NewsThump from a foetal position under his duvet, the cat’s ‘owner’ confirmed that under normal circumstances this would indeed be the time that she got up to feed the cat.

“But I was hoping for a lie in this morning,” she added, testily. “Aaargh! Ow!”

Hauling herself out of bed, a bleary-eyed owner expressed the hope that in a few days the cat would get used to the change in the time of day.

But the cat was unconvinced.

“If that’s the way she thinks,” it told us, “all I can say is, she’s going to get a nasty surprise next time she puts on her shoe.”
