I had 3 exams this morning, so I was gone all day yesterday. I fed the kitties at about 730 am. I had planned on coming back in the early evening to feed them dinner, but I wasn't able to.
I finally made it home around 1:15 am. I expected that ET and Lacey would be screaming (so neglected) and I knew there was a good chance that ET had knocked over some pictures, which is something that he does when he gets mad.
Well I opened the door, and was greeted by two sleepy kitties. I thought something was strange, but I didn't complain. It took about 5 minutes before I saw it: a near-empty bag of Wellness Indoor Formula dry food sitting on the floor. There were crunchies scattered all over the floor, which means that they definitely had their fill (probably about 3 cups between them) and even were willing to leave some on the floor because they were so full.
The bag of food was in the closet... and they managed to get the closet open, get the food off the shelf, and then eat it!! I mean, I'm glad it was high-quality food, but still.
It's amazing, though, to see how much their bodies aren't used to eating dry food. After I figured out what happened, I realized that their water bowl was completely empty (they never drink water). ET and Lacey have been having stinky, runny, and frequent poops too.
Arg... I wanted to be mad at them, but it really wasn't their fault. Guess that's what I get for keeping any stash of dry food around
