Yesterday, while eating with the Monday Night Posse, Jason asked our friend to watch the kitties while we're out of town. After assurance that neither kitty has pus pockets (gross story) and we'll only be gone three days, she agreed. Our other friend said, "Oh, cats are easy, you just put three days worth of food out and they're fine," to which K replied, "Not Nike's cats. Claire would look like Garfield and Donte would look like he'd never been fed."
On the way home Jason and I laughed about how well K knows our kitties. Then Jason said, "I think they'd be fine with the food, it's just the lack of human interaction that makes them crazy."
"Yeah, they'd be fine with the food, but on that third day all bets are off."
"Yes, they really do need human interaction. Otherwise they tear the house apart"
"Wait, are you saying our cats become uncivilized if people aren't around?" At which point I burst into laughter because in my heart I know it's true.
"Um, yes... we'd come home to Lord of Flies kitty-style."
That's right, my darling fur balls are uncivilized if they don't interact with people.
