Natasia's Note to Grandma
by Melissa Minners
I recently went on a short vacation, leaving my cat in the care of my in-laws. I came home to discover this note on the counter. Looks like someone has been using my computer again!
Mommy left me all alone so she could go on a stupid vacation. She said she would be staying at the Windswept Motel at Point Pleasant Beach.
I need food and water! Who will feed me?!
My food is in the cabinet on the middle shelf - a blue/green bag of dry food. Mommy says I canít have any cans until she gets back. Otherwise, she says I will throw up hairballs all over the place. She says not to give me any canned food even if I beg and cry for it. Sheís mean!
I may go on a hunger strike for a day or two, but donít worry Ė Iíll eat when Iím hungry.
Please empty and fill my water bowl with cold tap water every day. Iíll be thirsty with all the whining I plan on doing while Mommy is away.
Please clean my litter box once each day, because if it fills up I will rebel and pee on the floor. Hee hee!
In case I have a real emergency,
my new favorite vet ismy favorite treats are located on the top shelf. Feed me lots of them and I'm sure I will recover nicely.
Poor, Lonesome, Neglected Natasia
