M here: "How can I give you more kibble if the packet is missing?"
"Mario, it couldn't just walk away on it's own. Now I don't know how much more to give you this evening."
M here: One-half hour later, I find the packet of kibble laying on the floor by the stair climber.
"Mario, how did this kibble packet get on the floor and way over here?"
"Mario, the bag of kibble didn't just walk over here by itself. If D didn't move it and I didn't move it, that only leaves you!"
"Mario, You've always been such a good boy! Why did you do this?
"That's a good one Mario! I haven't seen any other kitties around here."
M here - The sad part is that I couldn't even remember if I had filled his packet in the morning, or was that kibble left over from last night? I've been giving him wet food lately, with just 1/3 cup of kibble allowed for the remainder of the day. So, this is my fault again for not remembering what I did this morning! Yikes!
Anyway, don't worry about Mario. He did get his bedtime snack of kibble before bed, and another snack at 4:00 am when I woke up. He's not starving! But he did apparently help himself to the bag with the hopes of getting the zip lock bag open!
Sorry we've been missing for so long. Life just got in the way. I think we are back on track now and will be going around to visit today.
