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

May 15, 2012


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.



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… 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
