I was greeted by very enthusiastic meows. Everyone came out to greet me, including Mousey! I got a couple kisses (from Mousey) and some purrs (Kismet) and some lively chit-chat (Froggy). Kismet quickly found a great place to relax for a bit as I was prepared their dinner.

Dry food was served first, and Froggy and Kismet ate a bit and then went to relax. Mousey was hanging out in the wings waiting for the good stuff (i.e the wet cat food). I gave them each 1/3 of the can, making sure to put Mousey's in her own "room". The boys weren't interested in the wet food and were already out in the dining room digesting their meals.

Mousey, on the other hand, made up for the boys' lack of appetites. She attacked all the food bowls and wolfed down everyone's share.

Wow, that girl can put it away!
Of course, I put out fresh water for all, yet when parents are away, sometimes rules tend to get broken......
Everything was going smoothly. There was a little playtime activity.

Kismet, are you going to run after the ball too?
What do you think?
But then....out of nowhere....
I heard a sound in the hallway and went to investigate. Poor little Mousey paid the price for overeating...all over the hallway rug.
The poor hallway rug. No fear - it all came out!
Poor Mousey. She actually had a few more dry crunchies afterward and then took it easy.
Some TLC for Mousey
We had a little down-time relaxing - because I'm sure they worked hard all day today. I let them know I would be back tomorrow evening. I asked the boys to please be nice to Mousey, as she needed to take it easy tonight. They agreed, as Mousey walked by and solidified the deal with a threatening Hissssssssssss. (Apparently she was feeling much better).
Stay tuned for more Adventures!
Don't blink...you might miss me.
