Ever since Samson was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis, Mommy has been watching me like a hawk. She's concerned that maybe I can be a little too aggressive with him at times. I think I'm getting a bad rap and I think Mommy should give me a little more credit.
She has been watching us eat and because I eat faster than Samson, I used to go check out what he had left on his plate - I didn't force him to leave, he just did. It was easy pickins'! Now things have changed and the new routine is, Mommy stands there until we're both done and stands guard while Samson eats in peace. I want everyone to know that I'm being a good girl and even though my first reflex is to go ravage his plate, when Mommy says 'wait', I wait. She was very surprised that I did this so willingly, but I am surprised that she was surprised! After all, I love that little guy, and when he's not feeling well, he doesn't like to play as much.
Mommy has separated our plates more and sets it up so that I can't see what he's doing and vice-versa. Notice how I hold his tail with mine while we eat (I'm trying to keep him stress-free).
He still checks to see what I'm doing, but I'm too busy eating to notice!
We'll work this out so that Samson gets better really soon!
Happy Tortie Tuesday!
