In Search of "Long Lost Kibble" - A Pixel Adventure

I want to talk about a very important subject right now...a subject that is of great importance to me. I hope you will open up your hearts and minds to this all too common, yet highly hidden topic. Long Lost Kibble. Look at this poor long lost kibble that I found just recently. It's alone, isolated, rejected (by the cats) and abandoned. This poor kibble has no one to love it, no one to come looking for it, no one to care what happens to it.
That is why I am here. I have made it (one of my many) life's mission to go and seek out long lost kibble such as this one. I know you've heard me talk of this delicate subject before, but seeing this one lost on a dining room chair is just too much! How could things have gone so wrong for this kibble that it is left alone?

It all started when I was helping Mommy and Auntie in the kitchen. I was walking by the dining room when I sensed it...something was out of place (besides the slumped sweater on the chair). I could feel despair, I could feel loneliness, I could feel a little kibble....alone. I breathed deep so I could triangulate it's location. I followed my nose, and that's when I saw it. The long lost kibble.





I needed to get a better vantage point, so I snuck around carefully to the other side of the chair, careful not to startle the lost kibble. Once I had a good spot, I immediately sent out the distress call to Mommy and Auntie, doing my normal 'lost kibble warning' of a low Grrr-howl that is our special signal that kibble is in need of rescuing.
Auntie came over and went to reach in and get it but I ran back around to her side and lovingly stopped her immediately. I put my paw up (the universal sign for "wait") saying, "Auntie, please wait! I am a professional and I must be the one to get it." She immediately understood and put it back.







Since I needed Mommy to document this newest Long Lost Kibble extraction, I went BACK around to the best side of the chair so she could capture the drama. Once I was back in position, I had to stop and think things through...I was close enough to do whatever extraction was necessary to save that lone kibble, but I wanted to do this right.






I realized that the 'soft paw' approach was best in this case, based on height of the chair, my height, the location of the kibble in relation to the sides of the chair, and the type of kibble that was under duress. "Come here my little long lost kibble," I cooed to the tender morsel as I slowly and ever so gently raised my paw to reach for it. "There, there little kibble. I'll save you."
I could sense that things were going well as I inched closer and closer.

Finally, the perfect moment arrived. I made a breakthrough and I was able to actually touch the kibble! They call me "Pixel Soft Paws" in certain Nursing circles for my gentle pawed approach to nursing, so I have worked hard to hone that same technique in the search and rescue efforts of lost kibble.
By golly I set out to save this little kibble from being lost forever, and I succeeded!





As I moved in for the last portion of the long lost kibble extraction, I felt glad that I could help this little kibble be lost no more. It would now be appreciated and loved forever. That's all any of us hope for isn't it? So next time you see a long lost kibble, all alone, don't just leave it there. Be kind to the kibble and save it. You'll be so glad you did!

  2. Can't leave a piece of food laying around like that! My cat would have found that before I did and he would have eaten it too!

  5. My kitty knocks off the kibble onto the floor and then the doggie eats it. It's a conspiracy !
