Bug With Cat

I just bought this game this week; it is v1.0.7 final. I am experiencing a bug with my cat. I bought the cat and food for the cat during the same shopping trip. The cat is now out of food, and the game is showing me the little “buy cat food” postie.

However, when I go and buy food the money is deducted, but no food is credited. I tried buying it both by clicking on the postie and by choosing shopping as my activity. No dice.

Anyone having this issue? Any idea on how I can correct it?
