Sunshine Scores



We all know that Sunshine the Cat leads a charmed existence. She rarely does anything other than eat, sleep and poop. She MIGHT move from one pet bed to another - if she is so inclined. OR she will just stay in one spot all the day long. Yeah, she has a sense of entitlement like no other creature on earth.

And so it came time for the Chewy.com November newsletter - you know, the one with the list of treats to review? I live for that list - I dream about that list. I could just imagine all of the goodies that would be on that list. And I was not disappointed in the least. It contained so many MOUTHWATERING treat choices that I could hardly read the newsletter for all the tears in my eyes (from excitement) and drool flowing down my jowls.

Then, the unexpected happened. Mommy pulled me aside while giving me her "Now Noodles think about this. . ." look. That never bodes well for me. And she started right in with the good job on the diet. . . the VET was so happy I had lost. . . don't want to jeopardize. . . I think you know where she was going with this. In a NUTSHELL, she said no treats this MONTH. Zero - Zip - the big DONUT HOLE!!!! 

"But Mommy," I countered, Chewy.com is counting on us."

"I have thought about that Noodles," she said. "I think this would be a good time to give Sunshine the Cat a chance to review a treat. Look, they have some really great CAT options."

There was no arguing with her. She was not really giving me a choice at all. She was basically telling me Sunshine the Cat would be doing the review and for me to get used to ONE CARROT a day for a while.

I glanced over at Sunshine and she was attempting to be cool, all sitting there licking her paw over . . . and over. . . and over . . .

Then she hopped down from the shoji screen and sidled up to Mommy's leg. She started to rub all over that black pant leg like she was the most grateful cat in the world. Mommy totally bought it. She stopped just as suddenly, walked past me and gave me a smirk.

"It's about time this CAT got some attention," she meowed.

Watch out...mom did do one kitty thing one time, then she did it again. Then she started finding treats that were dog AND kitty friendly! It's a slippery slope my friend, a slippery slope.

OMD, that is SO not fair!! Chewy is counting on YOU to give them a review!! The blog header doesn't say SUNSHINE, does it? No, it's a Bowl of NOODLES!

Noodles...This requires desperate measures. We should all get together a NOODLES ACTION FUND so that you get your treats this month. One carrot a day? ONE? Our tummies ache for you.
