Patience Is Not Usually One of Soot's Virtues
Along with laundering any left over dirty clothes and towels before leaving home we also buy salt for the water softener and a huge bag of Meow Mix. We store the cat food in these empty pretzel jars and Soot, seeing the jars and bag, stationed herself nearby. You see this is a Soot-Dad ritual---Dad pours the cat food from the bag into the jar--some magically falls to the floor and Soot is the clean-up girl. Sooooo Dad, when are we getting started??? She sat there for about 45 minutes--never moved --sat with an occasional pained meow and, as time went by, more frequent importunate, demanding cat sounds. Finally, he was available and the chore was carried out like clockwork--he pouring, she cleaning---such teamwork--- the NY Jets could only wish for.
