Yes, in Freddie's eyes I starve him. He only gets food twice a day instead of 24 hours a day like he would prefer. To top it all off I don't let him eat Gloria's food either! So the dishwasher has become his favorite thing in our house....next to the bed, couch and well........everything else. But the dishwasher represents food on dishes that us silly wasteful humans haven't licked clean.
Fred knows my routine; usually I unload and reload at the same time.
"Are ya gonna unload the dishwasher now Momma?"
"Come on! How long can it take ya!"
"Sniff, sniff! Here comes the motherload! Come on Gloria!"
And the pre-wash cycle begins. This enables Fred to struggle by for yet another day!
