Featured Feline: As Bob and Kaye (Carlene Watkins) are preparing to leave for New York, Bob is explaining how everything is set up to run in their absence. “The automatic timer will turn on the TV and the lights at night and the cat feeder is set for the right amount of food and water to come out every night. The house will pretty much run itself.” Moments after they walk out the door the television set comes on, then the lights. Then the alarm starts blaring. And finally the cat food dispenser erupts, showering the kitchen floor with dry food. Otto run into the kitchen and starts eating.
Final Mewsings: People should go away more often!
