I have a couple of big projects coming due in the next two weeks, and not much time to do them. Today was jam-packed with activities and errands, including grocery shopping. After I did the "big shopping" at Aldi I stopped by the house to drop off the food, because it was too warm to drive around with perishables.
When I walked in the house at 1:30 the cats were waiting for me in the kitchen. They thought it was time to eat! However, I reminded them it was too early for their meal. (Yes, I talk to my pets. Don't you?) I brought in the bags and set them on the counter, then took all the refrigerated items out and put them away. The rest of the food could wait. I picked up my purse and keys, told the cats I'd see them in a bit, and left to go cross a couple more things off my list.
When I got home 45 minutes later the cats weren't anywhere to be found. I sat at the kitchen desk and caught up on emails and Facebook posts. By the time I was finished the cats were back. Jackson circled around under my feet, and Pepper jumped up on the desk and walked across it a couple of times trying to get my attention. I finished what I was doing, and told them I'd take care of them after I put the groceries away.
This was a small shopping trip, and everything (except for the gallons of milk) had fit into two large flat-bottomed cloth shopping bags. The first bag contained produce and miscellaneous groceries. The second bag held a couple of boxes of cereal, some canned goods, and a loaf of bread, which I'd placed on top of everything else.
When I pulled the bread out, I noticed something wasn't right. There's not supposed to be a hole eaten into the bag:
Who did it? As they always do, both cats looked at me innocently when I asked. I tried to figure out the message they were sending. Were they announcing they need more food, or annoyed that I ignored them?
