Jim,it sounds like my mornings.
Kitty-feeding time takes about 30 min+,me following them around with their dishes,making sure Chico has a quiet spot,watching Vinnie so he does not eat all the dishes
Rocky starts in the kitchen,then I have to follow him with his dish to the den-window where he finishes,fun,fun,fun...
When I finally sit down with my coffee and morning-paper,Vinnie decides,he's more important than the paper
plunks himself down
