Time. A completely silly human device, with no apparent relation to the important markers of a life.
This is how the bi-peds measure their concept of time. Complicated, yes?
They should just live as we animals do. Eat.Sleep.Wake.Eat. Sleep…easy!
I have, therefore, introduced my system, based on the need for food after having slept off the food I last ate.
This system is known as GMT (Geiger Meal Time) and, to make it easy for “them” to understand, I have based it on a solar observance. Before the sun begins to take away the shadows I apply paw pressure*, coupled with vocalisation, to The Secretary.
At other times, vocalisation can be varied with banging of pantry doors. You will find a method that best suits your household.
One more thing…I think the “royal” epithet is entirely appropriate. So I’m appropriating it!
*(vigorous paw pressure ensures that she goes to her “litter tray” )
