I'm really not a cat person

My husband thinks our cat is 'entitled'. When she meows for more food, he complains that she thinks more food is her right.

He talks to her about rights versus priveleges. It's quite cute.

So what if she has already had her bowl of food, I say. She can lick the inside of the tuna packet. But he says, no. That would be spoiling her and letting her think she can eat whenever she wants.

But really, she is a lonely cat. We all leave for the day with barely a glance at her over our shoulders. She deserves to be let into the apron drawer every now and again.

She is so much less hassle than the dogs were. (Who are not dead, but live on acreage in the country with people who love them).

Even though she is spoiled the least by my husband, it is he who she snuggles up with during TV watching time.

How is that for grateful?

You sound a lot like us except I tell our cat to go hunt for a mouse if she's still so hungry.
