Cat-Food Flavored Coffee, Or How You Know You’re Getting Older…

May 15, 2012

Freaky

I had a restless night’s sleep last night. Bad dreams, hot and humid weather, mice (or worse) rastling inside the walls, etc etc. So I woke up pretty groggy, needing my coffee. My lovely Livvy Cat, however, was meowing at my feet, begging pitifully for her food. So with a brief burst of compassion, lol, I paused my java jolt, rummaged through the silverware drawer for a spoon, cracked open a can of cat food, and scooped a hunk into her dish. There.

HEY, FEED ME.

Now, for the coffee. Oh wow, the kids have gotten to it before me– there’s only one cup left! The liquid delight fills my cup…. I eagerly scoop a bit of sugar (well, OK OK, a tablespoon and a half) and some creamer (real dairy! Yep, I live big). I stir and stir to make sure it’s all perfectly blended. As I pull the spoon from the cup, it has small specks on it…. what the?

Oh gosh. I stirred my coffee with the same spoon I’d used to scoop the cat food. YUK. I hesitate for only a quick second… then… down the hatch. Whatever.

Hey, it was the last of the coffee in the pot!

    Oh, I would have downed it, too. But wait. Sugar in coffee? Not happening here, but to each his/her own!

    Beautiful blue-eyed kitty. Of course, one would pause to feed the little dear.

      I used to drink my coffee black until I married my husband, who always made it sweet. I got hooked.

      Yes, Livvy is my half-Siamese “baby.” šŸ™‚

    Hard to top that story. My post today was also on coffee. Fortunately, I found a link to this on Twitter and so was able to add a link to you before publishing. I hope your day has gone better since that first cup of coffee. šŸ™‚

      Oh, Chuck, are you on Twitter?? I’d love to follow you! šŸ™‚ Thanks for the link. Like i said on your post, the coffee wasn’t too bad until I got to the bottom of the cup. *gag*

    Livvy was playing a trick on you, she wanted you to taste her food and see what she has to deal with lol.

    • Rebecca Says:

      Haha, oh? Well, I would say that it’s very… fishy. Maybe she just wanted to share, as I often share my “people food” with her. lol :fuuds:

    You know you are a mom when….

    I’d drink it too. Hey, if it’s good for the cat…right? Who’d want to waste that last cup of coffee?? NOT me!

    Omgosh. That’s funny in a disgusting sort of way. My two girls always liked to snack on dog food when they were little. šŸ™‚

    Cathy – I think you would like this post I did a while back… http://www.feelingbeachie.com/some-days-maybe-you-should-just-stay-in-bed/ Along the same lines, but different….. And I would lie and say I didn’t do this ever šŸ™‚

    Rebecca – sorry I called you cathy…. UGH… I have too many windows open and not enough coffee….

    • Rebecca Says:

      Oh Hilary, don’t you worry! I have often done that myself! Thanks for your comment. I will check out that post, I’m glad I’m not the only one who does ditzy stuff sometimes! LOL
