I am amazed at how time oriented my "niece" is.
She's been on a diet since I last saw her, so she's lighter but seems to be hungrier...
She wasn't too verbal last year, but, has gotten very verbal since.
Everyday when my brother's alarm goes off, she knows that it is breakfast time, so she comes to wake all of us up by meowing loudly.
Then every afternoon at about 4-ish, she and I have this convo...
Malia: "Aunty I'm hungry"
Me: "but it's too early to eat, wait until 6"
Malia: "No, feed me now"
Me: "No, it's too early"
Malia: "C'mon..." (then she brushes up against me)
Me: "No" (then I ignore her)
At about 6, when I eat, I feed her...then when my brother comes home, she meows loudly thinking she'll be fed again.
It's funny because the only way to get her to look straight at the camera is when she is in "feed me" mode.
