So I'm stuck hanging out with rest of the staff. They aren't too bad until it comes time to have snacks.
AB Christine is especially stingy, but I thought she might feel sorry for a hungry Library Cat with no thumbs. So I hung out with her for the afternoon.
First I showed her my famous cord-chomping technique:
That's an old audio cable that I absolutely love biting on! (It's wrapped around a $30 scratching post/ball chaser that I couldn't care less about.)
I hopped up on AB Christine's desk to chew on some papers and knock her writing utensils to the floor. ALSO to stomp on her keyboard while she was editing a Word document (that always gets me some attention!).
She tried to distract me with some Feline Training Devices:
|Yep, that's my Forever Pepper!|
So I did this to make her AWWWW,
and then I chewed the corners off the invoices I was sitting on.
No matter how involved I seem in my activities, I am always alert to the goings-on in my Library. (Note the raised paw. For some reason that always makes people AWWWW, too. I use it to swat at people who aren't listening to my treat requests.)
After a while I resorted to staring. Notice my Frown of Displeasure. This photo was taken about a nanosecond before I meowed "Hey put down the flashy-box and get me some treats!"
|Not an artsy shot. Just a tilted photographer.|
Repetition is the key to training these humans. So I meowed repeatedly, and we seem to have made some progress. I think I got her to reach in the treat drawer two times in one sitting, which is a Friday Miracle!
Thank goodness AAB Karen is back at work tomorrow.
Weak, extra-rattly, empty-belly purrs,
PS - Today I taught AAB Becki that I do not like beef-flavored wet food. That one is a little easier to teach.
