Evidently our cat is a hobbit. Who knew?

Rob and I are fairly new to kitty ownership and as a result, our mastermind of a kitty has totally played us against each other. Tonight, we discovered that the cat has been scamming us to get more food than he should have. He pulls his “I am so starving, please feed me” act when Rob gets up for work. Rob feeds him and he eats it all before I get up so he can convince me that he hasn’t eaten yet and begs me to give him a second breakfast.  (For the record, we give him part of a can of cat food in the morning and the rest at dinner time. He also has all-day access to dry food so there is never a time when he is actually without food). To make matters worse, our roly poly little cat (who cannot wash his back paws without rolling over) may have scammed my sister into giving him “elevensies” on one or two occasions that she got up before me. 

In response to this, we have decided to A) improve communication among the humans in the house so he can’t scam us in the future and B) give him a new Hobbit nickname to reflect his love of second breakfast. From here on, the name “Master Grodo” has been added to his list of many aliases.

About Ciarrai

Hi. My name is Kerry but here online I tend to go by the Gaelic version of my name, Ciarrai. I am a woman in my mid-30's who lives on Long Island, NY, with my husband, Rob, several guitars, a Nikon D40, more yarn, beads and books than I care to admit to and a cat who has a million nicknames and quite a few theme songs. I have a B.A. in Psychology and have recently returned to college to pursue a teaching degree so that I can eventually get a job as a High School English teacher. In addition to my major obsessions (Reading, Beading, Knitting, Music and Photography), I also enjoy playing Board Games, going to Renaissance Faires, Museums and Broadway Musicals.
