Front Porch: When Tabby’s On A Diet

Note: Cindy Hval is on vacation this week. Milo, her personal assistant and the senior cat of the Hval house, is filling in for this week’s column.

All I wanted was a snack. I mean, is that so much to ask considering the starvation rations I’ve been placed on because of Thor’s weight issues? He gets fat and I have to suffer. It’s just not right. I called to her from the hallway. “Meeeeow!” I said. She didn’t even look up from the computer. So rude! So, I asked again more forcefully. No response. Just the clicking of her fingers on the keyboard. Maybe her hearing is going. I sat next to her ankles and explained the situation. “Meeeow, meow, MEOW!” I said. “Be quiet,” she replied. “I’m on deadline – and you just ate.” More here.

Question: Would Milo do a good job subbing here at HucksOnline?
