Finish it Faster

15 Sep

Scratchy near Bongo's foodHey everybody, this is Scratchy here – the cat that has to put up with Bongo.

Bongo is being a rebel this morning. He does this sometimes. He goes outside and he won’t come back in the house. Until my person puts food in his dish, that is. Then he comes scratching on the door and as soon as my person lets him in he runs straight for that food dish.

Well, I decided to get him today. He thinks he’s going to find food in his dish because he heard it going into his bowl. But there’s not going to be any.

Because I’m eating it all before he gets to it.

Scratchy eating Bongo's food

Oops, I don’t think I’m eating fast enough.


Scratchy! What are you doing? Get out of my food this instant!

I can’t believe this. It’s a conspiracy! My person actually let Scratchy eat my food. They’re ganging up on me.

That’s right Scratchy. You can take your place at the water dish.

If anyone is looking for a cat I’m taking offers. And I’ll even pay for the shipping.

      Do you want a cat, Sweet Kitten?

    Oh, poor Scratchy…. I’m sorry Bongo but he looked so helpless and small! But of course there is only one master of that dish: Bongo!!!!!!!

    • Bongo

      Marina, Scratchy should never go near my dish. He has his own. Which I get in to when my person isn’t around – but that’s different.

      Alex and Penny, I have to admit that Scratchy’s food is good – but that’s no excuse for him to eat my food.

      • To Shea

        September 15, 2012 at 11:55 am

        Woof…Says Penny…LOL
        Maybe Scratchy knows that you have REALLY GOOD food and just wants a quick taste…..
        NAHHHH, I dont believeit either…LOL

        Penny, Scratchy never used to touch my food but for some reason he’s decided recently that he likes it.

      Oskar, cats can definitely be a challenge. Thanks for the invite to be featured on your blog. I’ll have my person drop you a line.

    Sorry, B. I can’t help you. I’m a little afraid of cats, and I LOVE to eat, so a food stealing cat would for sure not be welcome here. Scratchy is all yours!

    Love and licks,

    • Bongo

      I’m so disappointed Cupcake. I was hoping you’d want a new pet.

    Come and live with me and Barnaby – we always share food 🙂

    • Bongo

      September 15, 2012 at 12:38 pm

      Bassa, I’ll be right over. Then Scratchy can stay here by himself.

    BOL cats certainly are opportunists! Glad to see you got your food back!

    • Bongo

      September 15, 2012 at 4:27 pm

      Misaki, I pushed Scratchy out of the way as soon as I could. It’s a good think he doesn’t eat very fast.

    I was very glad to see that you got there on time Bongo. Cats – one always has to keep his eye upon them.

    • Bongo

      September 15, 2012 at 4:28 pm

      No kidding, Bosun Dawg. Those cats are always up to no good.

    Pssst, Scratchy – Moe here. If you can’t eat it in time do what I do – sit in the dish!

    • Bongo

      September 15, 2012 at 5:10 pm

      Hey Moe, what a great idea. Next time Bongo doesn’t come in right away I’ve got a new place to curl up. -Scratchy

        Works every time…until that dog goes & tells your person.

    Bongo, RC Cat here. We could use some reinforcements in the realm and are willing to offer Scratchy an opportunity to visit the sunny window guest room….all We would ask is that Scratchy be delivered in a large enough box – one suitable for a dog who We shall be perfectly willing loan you for a while in return. What do you think?

    • Bongo

      September 15, 2012 at 8:53 pm

      RC, it’s a deal. I would gladly trade Scratchy for a dog. I’ll be sending him along shortly.

    Oh Bongo…..please do not push Scratchy away…..he looks really cute, doen’t he? Of course I like you very much Bongo but I like Scratchy, too!!! I love the last picture that you and Scratchy in! So heart-warming! 🙂

    • Bongo

      September 16, 2012 at 3:10 pm

      Kevin, please don’t tell anybody this but I do kind of like Scratchy. It’s just that he irritates me sometimes – like when he eats my food.

    You’ve got to be quick Bongo!

    • Bongo

      September 16, 2012 at 3:13 pm

      Flo, I try to be quick but my person worked against me this time. She left me outside and let Scratchy eat some of my food.

    Oh Dog! I know the feeling! Yesterday Jen gave us all a treat of canned food, and where do you think June Buggie was? Was he with the cats eating the CAT food? NO!!!! He was trying to nose his way into MY bowl! The NERVE!!!!

    • Bongo

      September 16, 2012 at 5:23 pm

      Rumpy, we’ve really got to do something about Scratchy and June Buggie. Maybe put them in a cage and ship them off somewhere. Or at least make them stay in a cage until we finish our food.

    LOL….. Ginger says hold scratchy’s head under the water the next time that happens… hehehehehe

      Ginger, you always come up with the best ideas.

    I will receive this Scractchy with no problem ♥
    Don’t hate him, Bongo. He is a bit special 😉

    • Bongo

      September 17, 2012 at 3:42 pm

      YouKai, I’m packing Scratchy up and shipping him your way now. Oh, no. My person won’t drive me and Scratchy to the post office.

  17. Misty Shores Chesapeakes

    September 17, 2012 at 3:18 pm

    Well I think you should just help yourself to some of Scratchy’s food!

    • Bongo

      September 17, 2012 at 3:53 pm

      Don’t worry Misty Shores, I help myself to Scratchy’s food every time my person leaves the house and forgets to put it on top of the fridge. That still doesn’t mean Scratchy should eat mine.

  18. angelswhisper2011

    September 18, 2012 at 1:42 am

    Bongo, we love Scratchy, so you can bring her to us… under one condition, that you come too 😉

    • Bongo

      September 18, 2012 at 1:49 pm

      Angels Whisper, I’m not sure how well Scratchy and I would travel together. But I’d be glad to come for a visit.
