So. We had to "distract" the momma. Easiest way to do this is to take her shopping.
We all agreed to take the proverbial bullet for the team. Well, by all I mean the three of us. JD, The Wendy and I. Cosmo was not on board with taking any bullet. Figuratively, virtually, or otherwise.
Remind me he is around the next time we need a night light. [sorry momma, but that boy has issues and he dared take my lap time, but that will be a different post. I need to calm down before I write that up]
anyway, we went to the local PET STORE. PET STORE. I know in theory what both words mean.
My issue is as to actual accuracy and validity of said designation.
I was assured by momma and the owner of that business that NO PET IS SOLD THERE.
I watched hoomans run in and say stuff like "Ohh I was out of dog food"
Is a PET STORE a grocery store?
Nahhh! Seriously. there is not one apple, not one turkey breast, no fish [out of a tank anyway despite the fact that if they had a sushi master prep some of those --- it would be grand and delicious!]
no, yogurt, no veggies, no food of any kind! I mean they have bags of dehydrated mystery stuff, but that is like expecting a hooman to live on potato chips and such.
Where are the fresh goodies? The stuff that makes my white fluff fluffier?
I need real nutrition!
I can see running in to replenish the toy box.
I can see running in to visit the gerbils or other little fluffies or even the fancy chickens! Momma insists on calling those "pair of keets"whatever,
BUT pet stores are not and should not be treated as grocery stores. And while we are at it, by law, there should be a prominent current and past list of all recalled dog food in every isle of mystery pellets and such. So the hoomans would actually know what to look for. I dunno. Momma says "non c'e` piu` sordo di chi non vuol sentire" Italian idiom that roughly translates to... there is nobody deafer than he who does not want to hear... or equivalent to, you only hear what you want to hear. But really hoomans, in this day and age, with all the information available to you, how can you possibly use the pet store as your grocery store?
Thank you auntie Robin for picking out my family. They cook. Pellets are not food.
But, do you know what we found at the Pet Store? We found new puzzles!
Now all I have to do is convince the momma to fill them and put them out.
She is lazy.
