My Cunning Plan...

...has gone hideously wrong! You see, after my sick-up on Thursday my appetite wasn't quite as it should have been, I was eating little amounts of food but not as much as I should or could. On Friday night Meowmie kept trying to tempt me with Rotisserie Chicken (always works unless I really am ill) or Whiskas in Gravy. Well, I'm kind of bored of Whiskas in Gravy now so I didn't make much effort to eat it...I sniffed at it but then walked away....I suspected that if I kept this behaviour up then Meowmie would find me a tasty new treat to tempt me with. Something mega-delicious like she usally does!

It was a hard game to play, I caved in a little bit a couple of times but overall did quite well in not eating and I lasted right through to Saturday morning so was looking forward to a LOVELY temptation of some sort. Then disaster struck... I heard Meowmie on the phone to Ben Vet explaining that I wasn't eating properly. Ben Vet told Meowmie that she should go and get some Periactin appetite stimulant and see how I go until Monday, she then booked a provisional appointment for Monday afternoon and went off to the chemist to get the pills!!!! Oh Noes!!!!

However, on Meowmie's return I noticed that along with the Periactin pills she had some Waitrose bags full of different types of food. I thought to myself that I had better eat now, and end my game, cos otherwise Stormie's Limousine will be here on Monday to take me to the Vet Place. Meowmie placed a bowl of food on the floor and I tucked RIGHT IN!!! In fact, the food was delicious, it had REAL Tiger Prawns in it and Tuna in a fishy gravy. I ate the whole tin to myself! This was without the appetite stimulant too. Meowmie still gave me a quarter though after my meal just to be sure I didn't stop eating. This is a picture of my new favourite food - so my cunning plan kind of worked!:



I haven't had any more stimulant since Saturday morning and my appetite has been good...I am favouring fishy food at the moment and am enjoying the Waitrose stuff. Meowmie also got some Wairose dry food and I have taken a liking to that as well. Meowmie seems pleased with my appetite so I hope I am not sick between now and tomorrow afternoon otherwise I will have to go and see Ben Vet in the Limousine.

I would ask Waitrose to sponsor me but, as you know, I'll be bored of their food soon enough and will be eating another brand before I probably have another little turn with Waitrose again. Anyway I wouldn't want to get myself into trouble with my sponsors!!! Not like Britney Spears and her Coca Cola / Pepsi debacle!!!

Hullo, Storm! We saw you at The Furry Kids' blog an decided to come by. That new food sounds pretty yummy! I'll eat amost anyfing, but Bonnie's picky bout treats an won't nefur eat any extra healthy ones. We bof love Temptations more than any ofur. We don't always get along, but we agree on THAT. Purrs!

That looks like very interesting food! We are a lot like Victor and Bonnie, in that Kavan will eat just about anything, but I have rather discerning tastes....I especially like salmon. Maybe Mom will bring some home from Seattle!

I'll eat just about anything so long as it comes in a can or my humans eat it. However, I don't have your delicate stomach yet. We are Siamese are prone to this type of stuff, you know. I'm glad you got good stuff and didn't have to go to the vet!

Oh Noooooes! I hate when our best plans go awry. But it's a good thing if you ended up with some delicious stinky goodness. Tiger Prawns sound very yummy. Keep up the good eating!

Tuna and tiger shrimp? oh I would cave for that too.
I hope you are feeling well today.
Good luck at the vetplace ::shivers::

That looks very, very yummy! The canned food we get over here is very unimaginative (or written all in Chinese so i could be buying chicken poop and wouldn't know it!). And it's all fish! You're a very lucky cat! I hope you're feeling better!

well, the food looks delicious. I am sorry your plan didn't work but I imagine you worry your human sick sometimes! Chin up brave kitty and enjoy your yummy waitrose food. My human is too tight to shop at waitrose. What? Oh, she says there isnt one on the isle of wight. Whatever. x

Kaze, Latte, or Chase said...

Oh you are the master!!! I try to hold out on food like that too but it never works. The Lap Lady says I'm just being a PITA and she sits with me until the aroma is too hard to avoid and I dig right in. Keep up the guessing games!

dear storm,

it's good to hear that you started eating on your own again!

Radcliff, Allie, Luna & Ozzie said...

Hey, Storm. Glad to know you're still doing well.

We were looking on the web, trying to see if we could get Waitrose food. That doesn't look promising, but we did find a Waitrose recall for salmon, prawns, crab, and the like for food poison (Listeria), for example here and here.

We just thought you might want to know about this, if you don't already.

thank you for the tip!
Meowmie had just finished eating some Crevettes (tiger prawns) from...Waitrose! Hope she is OK tonight!
