Wordy Wednesday - When "Effort" Pays Off

So last night mommy was doing lotsa laundry and because the laundry room is off the kitchen, she had to make several trips by the fridge (where the open stinky goodness resides). I kept following her, meowing, chirping, anything to get her attention and let her know "I'd like some stinky goodness please."

She kept saying "Oh sweetie, you've already had all your stinky for the night. There are fresh crunchies in your bowl..."
But I didn't want crunchies, I wanted stinky goodness!

So finally, on what was to be one of her last trips into the kitchen with the laundry. I leapt from my spot by the bedroom door and ran as fast as my tiny kitty feet could carry me into the kitchen. Pitter patter pitter patter MEOW!

And guess what happened.....Mommy said "Oh Hendrix, that was such a good effort and you put so much energy into that I'll give you a little more."

And she did.

I am exhausted from the effort, but must say, on occasion, using that extra energy pays off very well!

I have a great photo of my "beggin' eyes" but stoopid blogger won't let me post it. It keeps telling me "You must enter at least one image" when I did select my image! duh.

Nice job Hendrix! :) That was very sweet of your mom to give you extra Stinky Goodness!

I hope Blogger cooperates soon so we can see your photo!

What a good mom! I wish the Lap Lady would give in to me when I'm begging. She just kind of laughs at me.

Hey Hendrix...

I'm having the same problem with Blogger and the photos. I couldn't post a lovely photo today!!!

But good on you for your extra stinky goodness. I'll have to try it sometime. Over the past few days I've been waking the woman up early (because the sun shines early now) and she's a real grump!! Dang. She still waits to give me the stinky goodness even though the sun is out!!

You get an "A" for effort. Im starting to wonder what all this stinky goodness is about we only get cruncies on account of my tummy.

Excellent - I wish DKM was as nice as your mom! You may want to try flickr to post your pictures.

Just be persistant, you will get what you want.

Grate effort and grate result. Well done!!

Kimo & Sabi said...

Mommakitty just uses a pyschological tactic called "planned ignoring" no matter how hard we try!

William said...

Gosh, that never works in my house!

Max said...

Good job! I keep trying to get extra Stinky Goodness, but the People won't give it to me on purpose. I have to live for the times they do it by accident...

Buddah did a lot of cute things and got us an extra crunchy treat today. I had to be happy with that...

One-Eyed Jack said...

Good Job Hendrix! I can't even get my OTW to 'get' that I want stinky goodness at all some days. But she usually only gives it to me once in a day.

But occasioanlly I pull that manouver on her, and she just can't say no when I'm that frantically hopeful!

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

great job! kitties are so cute, it's impossible to resist us for long. we've got an extra bonus for getting treats: we're not supposed to be here. that means that if one of us starts meowing his/her head off (usually Cocoa), the Lady's gotta give us something to shut us up so the neighbors don't hear.

WOW! You're cwever!
I shall have to twy that too.
Mummy never gives me enough stinky goodness or fishy fweshness, or even cwunchy goodness!
All she does is say that I'm alweady too fat!
But HEY....I'm not fat! I'm just big-boned!
