This cat wasn’t raised right.
First off, he is a glutton.
He eats 4x what Miss Kitty does, then he tries to eat her food.
He then goes about the neighborhood trying to steal other cats food.
He occasionally takes it with violence.
Second, he is a sloppy glutton.
He tears into every meal as if he didn’t just eat fifteen minutes ago, clumsily depositing food all over the floor and himself.
I then step in chicken pate on my way to the bathroom at night…
Third, he is loud and whiney…everything in Chester’s world (like waiting for breakfast) is a crisis that can only be met by mournfully howling the song of his people.
This, at 4:30 am.
Most pets exchange their affection and companionship for the care they receive.
Chester is suspicious of real affection and when he is affectionate it often seems like manipulation…for more food.
He is, as I said, a difficult pet.
I recited all of this to a friend who had a simple solution.
Get rid of him.
Once you adopt a pet that pet is yours to care for,you have chosen that responsibility and you will finish what you chose to start.
Chester will live out his days with me and he will be loved and cared for just as I love and care for Miss Kitty who is lovely in all her ways.
You know where I’m going with this…
I don’t know about you,but I’m one of God’s difficult children.
My habits are often not the habits of His kingdom.
I usually approach the throne because I want something and I do so in feigned affection.
I get loud and whiney when the blessing is late.
I’ve never heard Him discuss getting rid of me.
I never will.
Neither will you.
We’ve been adopted.
Adoption is for forever.
Make your own application…
