Treat Tragedy Tuesday

It’s a tragedy . . . officially. Mummy has run out of my most favourite dried herb treats in the whole wide world. She got the packet like she usually does, and tipped it over my treat bowl saying I should “enjoy the crumbs left” Crumbs?! It was practically nothing! And I checked . . . see:

I gave her the hard stare and she is under strict orders to fetch me more tomorrow. For now, she is letting me sniff the empty bag, like a kitty with a small taster of catnip.

  1. Yikes, that’s not acceptable, make sure that bowl is full tomorrow šŸ™‚ xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

  2. empty bag? where is the A-team, that’s an emergency case!

  3. Mummy must be bowing her head in shame šŸ˜‰

  4. I thought Frederick was driving me crazy keeping me up chewing on his ceramic bowl in solidarity with your plight, but I just noticed their bottle is empty.

    His grandmother would try to climb out of her box to get to me if she knew I was snacking on sunflower seed kernels or dried red currants.

    Annie likes the red lettuce in the spring mix. We all like cherries and carrots and parsley.

  5. Holy crap Batman! That “IS” an emergency when you run out of treats! Tell your Mommy to get in her car and go get you MORE treats….NOW! Doesn’t Mommy know that we can’t survive a day without treats?

  6. OH no…worst day ever !!! it is unthinkable!!! pop in to Forrests pawty…there are special piggie treats somewhere šŸ™‚ Hugs Fozziemum xx

  7. Oh Buddy that’s inexcusable!!! No fave treats? I get very pouty on the rare occasion my favorite Temptations Tuna Flavored treats aren’t available but Mom keeps bunches of bags of them around so it’s not often I have to suffer like you – maybe at Forrest’s pawty this morning you could nab some???

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  8. OMGoodness, Buddy! Running out is unacceptable! What kind of an operation are they running over there?? They should have AT LEAST 2 back-up packages at all times! Wait. What? I need to go check my pantry…..

    Love and licks,

  9. How could something like that happen? We have a whole drawer full of treats, so we will never run out. Mom is like that, always at least one back up in the house!

  10. What?! No herby treats left?! Eee gads! We love fresh blueberries, bananas, and apples. We also love lettuce fresh from the garden but Mummy said her garden did poorly this year. The stuff from the store isn’t the same.

    • Whee love our veggies but Mummy gives me dried herbs in the morning with my breakfast and I love love love them. Whee are not happy with the hoomans. Not happy at all. ^_^


  11. Oh NO – THUD! Life without our favorite treats – NO WAY. In my best authoritative voice channeling Donald Trump, “You’re fired.” Snorts – PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud). Since she ran out, I’m sure she will make it up to you with extra treats šŸ™‚ Oh yay!
    My favorite treat is carrots. If I don’t have my carrots – watch out doc! Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

  12. Go over and take Nacho’s treats. He’s small and can be pushed around.

  13. LOL, fur goodness sakes, “empty bag, empty life”….crack me up. I get that feeling when all my Orville Redenbacher cheese popcorn is gone.

  14. Whee know how you feel. The supermarket keeps running out of our spring greens, it’s disgusting behaviour from the hoomans, don’t they know piggies rule? Snuggles, Daisy, Peaches and Cinnamon.xxxx

    • Whee actually know that our local shop didn’t have spinach so Mummy got a bus to another so whee didn’t miss out. Her training is good but need more work whee think!


      • Daisy loves spinach the most, she has gone from sweet and innocent to the incredible hulk when it comes to wanting spinach. Grandma guineapig got her hooked on it, when spring greens were not available in her area for a whole month. Daisy was at her home for a vacation when mummy was very poorly.

  15. Well there goes your mummy’s Mummy of the Year Award. She must be completely ashamed of herself. One of my favorite treats is bananas. I have even trained my daddy to ask my mommy the following before he eats a banana: “Is it ok if I eat that, or is it for Harper Lee?” Good Daddy! šŸ™‚

    • Very good Daddy training. The little hoomans are the same, “can whee eat the carrot stick or are they for the piggies?” “can whee eat the celery or is it the piggies?”

      So funny!


  16. Kirbys favorite treats are honestly anything he shouldn’t be eatting, that be kleenex…ugh, or crumbs of what-not. He also does love greenies though šŸ™‚

  17. You run out tut tut double dose next time :-0

  18. Oh noes! I agree with MTM, demand double portions!

  19. Gosh my mummy would never do that,that terrible Buddy to make you wait like that,snuggle Speedy

Squeak to us!!!
