We are fond of my mum but she's not clever like a cat and sometimes needs help with the simplest things - recognising meal opportunities for us, understanding basic meows, knowing when the correct time to stop petting us is - that sort of thing.
Anyway she seems to have understood help was needed as she has started a brain training programme. Mostly it is very dull, she clicks and mutters and I'm not sure she's getting any cleverer but yesterday there was a game I liked.
Little fish swim about a pond and mum had to tap them one by one to give them their fish food. They swam all over and she had to keep track of which had already been tapped. Now if you want swimming fish tapping there's one cat you need to call - Me!
Now we've touched on my mum's lack of gratitude for assistance before.
"That one" I would confidently smack the screen.
"Toby! Move your paw. I can't see what I'm doing."
"It's swum away now. It's that one" - another helpful tap.
She pushed my paw off the screen and interesting lights flashed up. The computer knows a genius when it sees one.
So I am not allowed to help brain training any more. Mum will just have to stay puny minded. Luckily she has me and Josie to compensate.

I think our Mom needs brain training too. She's also missing many of our meal opportunities. That's nice that you wanted to help her. It's tough being a smart cat.
MOL! My momma needs help too.
Ooh, my mom loves that game! But she didn't know it was for training the brain.
