Mom mentioned that it's time for me to learn to listen. So, it's training time for me. Zach says it's simple, when Mom calls out your name and snaps her fingers you stop what your doing. Then if you don't, you get the pop. He also said Mom lets us get away with a lot of stuff that some of our other kitty friends here can't do. So, we should listen.
Here I go, I'm stepping on the laptop and Mom says my name sternly. I don't flinch and pop, right across the bumpkins. What was that for????
Then I knocked Zoe's food bowl off the dresser after Mom called on me for playing slip and slide on the dresser and pop again.
So the training begins. This stinks, so humiliating!
yeah - what's THAT about?! I tried to walk over the laptop for the first time today and the Mama PUSHED ME! Then later I tried to stick my face in her cola, and she made it RAIN IN MY FACE! Why did she DO that??? And never mind that - HOW did she do that???!!!
How did she do that? Just don't give our Mom any ideas.
Do what I do and walk across the keyboard and fart in her face. Then she won't have time to pop you in the butt, she'll be too busy gasping for air! MOL
My farts aren't that potent yet. I'll have to ask Diamond to help.
HAHAHAHAHA, you have to save them up especially for when you have those opportune moments! I'll teach ya!
I wrote an entry about the laptop just last week!!
I get squirted with a water pistol when I do something wrong. When I go where I'm not allowed or bother Tink too much, or try to eat her food when she's not done yet. I know I get to eat it, but only when she walks away, and I just can't wait because I'm a growing boy! The water gun allows mom to reach a far distance without moving, because whatever it is, I've stopped by the time she gets to me.
This is Mom....guys stay up for the pics I just got! I'll up load them now! You've got to see this. Zach and Gris are sleeping together and it's a sea of black and white. Plus they are head to head. So cute!
I said don't give her any ideas! That means you too Snow!
Mom found out while doing research on Clicker training that it was along the idea of clapping to get your dogs attention and away from doing something bad. Mom realized this isn't to far off of a what she does now with Zach and Diamond. She doesn't hardly have to pop Zach anymore he just knows when she snaps her fingers to back away from what he was doing. Only time he ever really gets in trouble is when he escapes to the basement. It works. Plus, you've got to mean business in your tone of voice.
The pics are up!
Training??? We're supposed to train them, not the other way around!
Great Pix, Griswold!~Sorry ur mom had to pop ur bum, so ok, we like to explore 'n stuff!? We kittens 'n does dem things! Mom has our apt somewhat kitten proof, 'n I guess I hadn't ventured da bookshelve's yet coz Milo don't go there anymore's, it's probably da one purrlace mommy would get all bent outta shape if we jumped up there. I keep way busy terrorizin' my MILO! MOL! I agree, Jez! But mommy sez it's a two way street also! Ya Know, Clicker trainin' werk's really good, coz I know's I got treats comin' when I hear's da sound! Good Luck wif ur trainin' sessions, Gris!!~
I love treats!
Yur mom gotz really cool pix of you and Zach!! An' yews gots to just learn how to sit up on your hind legs, wave your little front legs around, make your eyes realllll sad like. Then you give this little silent meow - melt der hearts an' day will give you anything. Try it. Dad says I am spoiled rotten. I think that is a good thing.
Oh Miranda, you are so right about the silent meow. My mom is a sucker for that too.
Gris, I hate it when my mom yells "HEY!" really loud when I do something bad. I think that's her version of the butt pop.
I do the silent meow, too! Mom thinks it's so cute - just this little pink mouth open, no sound. and the sweet sad little eyes...Heeheehee snork!
Oh trust me, you learn that Hey stop that is a butt pop! I knocked the lamp over last night trying to get to a moth..All Mom had to do was look at me and called me by my real full name and I ran! (As I was protesting it was Diamond who knocked it over.)MOL!
You said it!! My mommy thinks my silent meow is ADORABLE!!
I just can't do that. I speak 50 meows a minute when I do. Mom says I must have had a Siamese cat as a forefather. I wake up Mom every morning meowing and licking her nose and trying to bite her ear. Mom says she's got to get me sleeping through the night like everybody else. Funny thing is once I've got her good and awake then I crawl up next to her and go back to sleep. MOL! Yes, I know I'm a stinker!
I'll teach you how to whine kid! Trust me! I am one loudmouth mom can't ignore.
The Mama says that now she remembers why she didn't want more kittens in the house - we are hyperactive pains in the ass!
Yeah, Fearless, I get dat too!~ Mom sez it's been too long since a kitten was in da house, like when Smokey Joe was 4 week's old back in 2003! So what we get wild 'n crazee! It's ok, isn't it, Gris!? It's what us kittens do. Mommy sez kittens aren't kittens near long 'nuff so her really enjoyin' my crazee antics! I can whine wif da best o' 'em! Shut up MILO! GIGGLES!!
Mom said she's got to video tape me some. She wants to keep the kittenhood memories alive.
Crazzee antics is right!
