Sun Going Down On Me
I got to stay out last night till the sun started going down.  I wanted to stay out all night and have a camp out.  But mom said NO and made me come inside.

SO I made mom get up in the night to feed me more Fancy Feast Appetizers it's the green pack called White Meat Chicken & Flaked Tuna that I'm eating and it's all I want to eat.  Mom wiped out Orange, Ron wiped out Charlottesville and Culpeper, Nora wiped out Fredericksburg ----  see if there's any left in your town!!! 

Hurry I'm eating like a pig .....    I'm eating almost a case a day!!!  It takes a lot to make a meal, they're just supposed to be little appetizers, but I think they're my morning snack, breakfast, morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack, mid day snack, late afternoon snack, evening snack, dinner, dessert, evening snack, before bedtime snack, bedtime snack, midnight snack, middle of the night snack ..........   I just can't stop eating them!!!!  So nummy!!!  And I've got five pounds to gain back -- if you are what you eat - I wanna be a Fancy Feast !!!!!
