Mom could learn a lot from me if she paid attention. She took this picture of me washing up after I had my dinner. It's a lesson she should learn. When she is sewing like a maniac, she makes dinner and then just puts the dishes on the counter and leaves them there. Tsk, tsk. Things are so much harder to clean if they are left to sit for a few days.
Case in point. Mom got home from day hunting last night, fed me my dinner (as usual) then sat down to read her tippy tappy lapbox. When her tummy started growling, she put the lapbox aside and went into the kitchen. I heard a big sigh, and then she came back into the living room rubbing her face. She walked around for a few minutes then went back into the kitchen.
I heard pots banging and the water running. She was washing the dishes. This went on for about half an hour. Maybe less, I don't know, I'm a cat!
The next thing I heard was Mom rummaging around in the cold box, taking stuff out and putting stuff on the kitchen counter. Naturally I had to investigate. She was cutting up some yukky green stuff and doing other stupid cooking stuff. She went outside to cut some stupid green herby stuff from her garden and put it on her foods. Then she sat down to eat.
Guess what she did when she was all done? She washed all her dinner dishes and the pots she used to cook with. But that's not the kicker. When she was finished, and the kitchen was nice and clean, the counters were empty of stuff (so much easier for me to get up there now), she comes into the living room and says to me, "Millie, it's so much better to take care of the dirty stuff right away."
Really? I mean, Mom, really?
Have I told you lately how glad I am to be a cat?
