My new friend Phoebe says that we can all be persuaded with treats. Yes, we certainly do like treats, the more the better! So why are the humans so fussy about them? A big bug got into our house and I thought I would give it to the humans as a treat because they've been especially obedient today. But when I meowed to wake them up and let them have it they wouldn't eat it at all! They just took it away and threw it out! What a waste!

Aunt Amy came today to do my nails! I was very good and sat quietly on the human's lap and didn't squirm around at all. I let him scratch my head while Aunt Amy clipped my back nails and then my front nails. Then she put on new hot pink caps to replace a few that I had let come off because the other human likes to hunt my discarded nail caps around the house! (She always smiles when she finds one and bats it with her paw.) When Aunt Amy was finished, she gave me four treats because I was so extra special good!

I am making real progress training the humans to stay nearby and watch me while I eat. It's so pleasant to have attendants on hand in the dining room, even if there's nothing much for them to do but admire my table manners. They're not too bright, but for training, I use positive reinforcement--lots of leg rubs and purrs. These always attract the humans' attention, and the humans enjoy them so much.

(And so do I!)

When it's hot I like to snooze the day away!

The early morning nap is best taken on the white loveseat in the living room. The humans don't go into that room much in the morning, so it's quiet.

The midmorning nap is nice on the green velvet chair in the bedroom. I can supervise the lazy human, the one who gets up late, and collect my Morning Attention as soon as she does get up.

For late morning, after my brunch treat, there's the computer table, while the human works at the computer. I like to lie between the monitor and the keyboard.

But afternoon naps are best--on the humans' bed, on the nice soft bedspread, with the shade down to keep out the afternoon sun. (yawn)

Oh--did I mention the wicker chair?

The pink sparkle ball. . . . The pink enemy! Attack! Stalk, bat, chase, catch, throw! Aha! Bite it into submission and make it bleed some pink sparkles! VICTORY!! (Meow, I punished it pretty good!) Pick the remains up in my teeth to carry to the next room to show the humans. While carrying it, meow the victory song out of the side of my mouth (the humans are amazed that I can do this!).

I have everything under control, as usual. Pink sparkly balls. . . humans. . . .

I've only been on Catster for three days, and already I have 22 friends! This is going to be fun!
