YouTube Tuesday- Do YOU Want DINNER?????

Hi my friends!!

Today I would like  to show you an event that takes place at our house EVERY DAY!

Since I rule the homestead, and my Sheltie brother, Dakota, is a "cat wannabe", I determine when we will eat!

Our dining "ritual" begins at approximately 3pm  (yeah, I know that is early. We are "early bird special" diners in our family. Chalk that up to having older-than-dirt pawrents).

I begin to "circle" my Dad  while  vocalizing my desire to scarf down dinner by summoning the  most annoying, whining "meow" that I can muster, (make sure your volume is turned up so you can hear!)

Then,  Dakota chimes in, in all of his manic glory!

My normally low-key and reserved Dad pulls out all of the stops for dinner time as you will hear in the worst-quality-video-ever-to-be-filmed below. I apologize for my Mom's lack of video skills,  but ya gotta give her credit for trying!  In her defense the room wasn't that bright either!

Be sure to watch real closely or you will miss my awe-inspiring gate jumping skills! You would think that I am the Sheltie in this household...naw, I'm smarter than that. He still hasn't figured out that he COULD jump the gate if he wanted to.  You'll have to excuse him, he is "one sandwich short of a picnic."

Anyway, watch the video and you can thank your lucky stars that it is SUPER SHORT!

  8. Too funny. I am always amazed how our 3 cats are creatures of habit and know the routines of most days.

    For example, after I feed them in the morning, my shadow Buddy, immediately waits at the bathroom door -- when i take a shower, he drinks from the facet, while another cat takes my place in bed, and the third waits for me to get out of the shower and have breakfast so she can sit on my lap and have some milk...LOL
