I’m writing from the library today. Not actually. I’m home now, but when I wrote this I was in the school library. I had a few hours to blow between classes... so sue me if I don’t do school work all the time. Aside from being another gloomy day, (the only thing outside making me smile is the geese as they do battle on the pond), all seems to be going fairly well. The weekend cometh!
In light of my lack of things to say about myself, I would like to address a rather serious issue that has befallen someone I love very dearly.
A decade ago, I went to the local humane society with my family and together, we adopted Meeko. He was the most adorably pathetic little kitten I’d ever seen. However, now a rather overweight ten year old, Meeko seems to be living a midlife crisis. I cannot in good conscience disregard my role. Jokingly I would make fun of him, calling him Flubbs and Saddlebags. If only I’d known the effect it would have on his fragile ego. If only I’d known it would lead to a serious Feline Yogurt Addiction, FYA for short.
I seem to be the only one to recognize the gravity of the situation. My parents are enablers and I can’t believe that they know the true extent to which Meeko craves Activia. Now, when he hears the top peel off the container, he meows his plight, trailing after whoever has his preferred drug in their possession. He sits with wide, shining eyes, not unlike Shrek’s Puss in Boots, begging for even the smallest taste. Only when the Enablers at last relent is he satisfied. For ten to fifteen minutes, face forced as deep as possible inside the container, he licks at the barren plastic walls, ensuring that it truly is empty. He’ll then scamper off to await the next person to open the refrigerator, all the while licking his mouth. It’s getting worse.
Please, if you have no sense of humour, keep yogurt away from your pets, though cats seem to be most susceptible to forming addictions. Thus far we pet owners have only had to fear catnip, but there’s a new drug now and it’s in our homes. That drug is yogurt. Let us all be vigilant in the times to come.
By the way, for anyone (if there is anyone) reading this, I managed to shave yesterday! Woot!
