Cat Fud


I've just flung Albert licked cat food at a Lycra covered biker.
It's been the most exciting thing that's happened all day.
I'd made a chicken risotto and and was cleaning up when Albert walked up to me and swiped my legs wanting food.
Albert is always fed from a small enamel tin bowl on the kitchen window still ( the only place dog free) and when baby rabbits are growing up, he will demand his meat dinner several times a day.
He's a fussy cat and loves to lick every bit of gravy off his dinner leaving dry chucks of meat in the bowl. In hot weather the bowl can get quite high and so I've got into the habit of throwing the licked contents over the kitchen wall , and the lane beyond into the raised lawn of the old churchyard where two crows have got in the habit of waiting for their dinner.
Today I flung the cat food out over the flight path of a silent biker coming up the lane.
I apologised profusely without explaining exactly what I was doing ..

  1. I saw that cartoon on a card some years ago when I had cats. I always wrote “ fud” on shopping list for the cat!! Love it !

  2. I think it should be compulsory for cyclists to have a bell they are always creeping up behind me and making me jump - so if he got covered too bad I say!

  4. One of my favourite Larson cartoons.
    I suppose the biker could have been hit with worse stuff.

  7. It's surprising that Mr Lycra didn't biff you on the nose and wrestle you to the ground in a scene that would have surely made the front page of "The Rhyl Journal".

    1. I am so sorry that whatever it is still blights your life.

    2. Glad your cyclist took it in good humour. Seems these days it doesn't take much for people to be abusive. Might not have been as affable if it was a turd!

  18. Cats just love that gravy. Mine leaves the chunky bits too, but I have never flung them at a biker as none pass by my house. Instead they get the royal flush.

  19. Oh those crazy cats. But after all it is in their job description.

  20. LOL ... that is so funny to me .. I think because things like that have happened to me before .. what can you do ? you laugh and go on ...smelling of canned tuna :)

  21. When I'm weeding at Haddock's I tend to throw stuff over the fence into the field. I once inadvertently showered some female walkers with a handful of earth and weeds. They were NOT amused.

  22. Ha-ha, that's funny. Poor cyclist.

    All of my cats leftovers get put out for the birds or any other hungry animals that happen to be passing by!.The plate is always clean every day when i bring it in and it saves me having to scrape it off!xx

  24. Such uncouth behaviour! I hope the poor biker didn't get pecked to death by the crows awaiting their daily treat! :)

  25. Somedays - life flings the unexpected at us - the best response is to laugh and ride on.

  26. I've been known to lob slugs and snails over our front hedge ... cyclists on the A470 watch out!!
