I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Lady Human! Lady Human!
Me: What’s the problem?
Stella: MoonCat is barking and won’t stop.
Me: Cats don’t bark.
Stella: You are right. If they did, they would make sense. What is her problem?
MoonCat: Meow. Meow.
Me: Oh, there’s a blank space in the bottom of her food bowl and she can’t stand that.
Stella: Why doesn’t she just eat what’s still in there?
Me: I don’t know. She doesn’t like empty spots in her food bowl, no matter how much food is still piled up around the sides.
Stella: Proves my point. She’ll never make a good bulldog. Blank spaces in our food bowls are the signs of meals well eaten. Hey, MoonCat! Clean your plate!
