Friday Feast #4

Once again, it's the end of the week and time for the Friday Feast!

Appetizer
Which television shows do you just refuse to miss?

It's a toss up between the Aquarium Channel's "Delicious Tropical Fish" and Avian TV's "Small Flightless Birds" ... Both are geared to "foodies" like me. If I'm in the mood, Vermin & Pests has a cool half-hour show on rodents ("Bottom of the Food Chain") that keeps me occupied when there's nothing good on. The episode on field mice kept me riveted!

Mom likes watching scripted television shows like "Studio 60," "Criminal Minds," "Grey's Anatomy," and the CSI shows. She tries to keep our viewing limited to only a couple of hours per night, so I find myself watching her stuff more than I get to watch mine. Having a DVR is really helpful because I can watch while she's workin' (don't tell her or she'll "block" my shows).

Soup
Who did you last speak to on the telephone?

Define "speak" ... Mom spoke on the phone to my grandma. I can "listen" on the phone and I can recognize some people's voices (like my Aunt Montie!), but being a cat and not having the right kind of vocal chords for "speech," the speaking part has me stimied.

Salad
How many pillows do you keep on your bed?

Oh, pillows. I have a full-size bed that I share with Mom, Sparky Fuzzypants, and Lucky Charmz. Mom has two pillows that she actually uses and about eleventy-six squillion other ones that she stuffs between the bed and the wall so that we don't fall into the chasm. My favorite pillows have satin pillowcases that feel REALLY good against my fur. Mom's favorite pillow is filled with buckwheat husks and she has one of those long pillows for snuggling.

Main Course
Name one addition to your computer (software, hardware, etc.) that you'd love to have.

That's a hard one. I think that I'd either want a "smell-o-screen" so that I could visit organic catnip sites and get a contact high (think of how great Prairieland Herbs would smell!) or I'd like to have real-time conversations so that I could meow to my friends in the blogosphere and hear them meow back.

Mom told me that she'd like to be able to have a touch screen where she could pet the tummies on 'Tummy Tuesday.'

Dessert
What is your favorite foreign food?

Do you consider "human food" to be foreign since I'm a cat? 'Cuz if that's the case, I'd say "MEAT." If it has to be a cultural type of thing, I'd say carne asada or carnitas. Or, oooo ... barbecued pork from the Chinese place ... They're about even as far as I'm concerned. Mom likes tamales.

Thank you for liking my photo, DMM!

Meat's not foreign; meat is natural for us! I'm still loving this raw food from Nature's Variety! Mom got a new flavor for us today; we'll see if it passes muster tomorrow. (She had to take the medallions out of the freezer to thaw.)

speaking of feasts...we know you like Sheba too. can you find it anymore in Sandy Eggo? we went to PetSmart and all the square containers (like our favorite, Roast Turkey) were GONE. on the bright side, they did have extra fancy Sheba in the smaller, twice as expensive, round cup-like containers. we were able to get the new flavors like duck and chicken and tuna, but we miss the old kind. PetSmart said Sheba had discontinued it. it's very disturbing. we don't like any other brand and, though we're fine with shredded stuff, we don't like chunks at all and we prefer the solid mush type to anything. none of the new Sheba is solid mush type. what are we going to do?
