I once again find myself awake (I would rather be asleep) and in the sad state of having an empty food bowl. If I could speak human I would have a few choice words for my human on this subject...alas I am reduced to body sign language so basic that even a human can understand it.
I have tried walking up to said human and clearly stating its dinner time. I got petted and told to stop walking on her newspaper. Oh, if only I had thumbs!
