On Sunday October 4th it was World Animal Day. This means, in general, extra food. Since I don’t care a lot about food, I hoped my humans had bought me a bird or mouse to chase.
Sophie was so excited. ‘Oh, Don,’ she said, ‘do you know what day it is?’
‘Mmm, let’s see … Sunday, I guess?’
‘Yes, yes, and …?’
‘What and …?’
‘It’s Animal Day, Don, we get extra food today! I’m so excited’
At 6pm, our human opened a small box. A nice smell entered my nose. Sophie went almost crazy. Our human placed the content from the box on a plate. Because Sophie has such a big head, I wasn’t able to try some of the food. The human saw it, and put a bit for me on another plate. I smelled, tasted and … no, I didn’t like it. Sophie noticed this and said with a mouth full of food: ‘Mmm … it’s beef in tomato sauce. Don’t you like it? No problem, I help you,’ while jumping from her plate to mine. The human felt sorry for me and gave me the dry food I use to eat. Sophie was so obsessed that she started to eat my favorite dry food too. The human had to place it somewhere else, so I could finish my dinner quietly.
That evening Sophie was lying on the floor, her eyes were half closed. ‘What’s wrong with you?’ I asked her curiously. ‘Oh Don, I have been eating too much and the only thing I wanna do is sleep. It was such a great meal. I wish it could be World Animal Day every day.’
