Mom is trying to set up a regular schedule for her tippy-tapping. Home from day-hunting, dinner, cleanup the dishes, then tippy tap. After that, bedtime. That's the way she wants it.
Need I mention she forgot something supremely important... ME!
Sure, I get my dinner at the same time as usual, and it's the stinky goodness I adore, but seriously, did you think I was going to let Mom forget my afterdinner scritching time? Would any cat put up with having to wait for their regular scritches? I think not.
So I didn't.
