pearl of wisdom #1: how to make the dog look bad

as a cat, i am genetically programmed to be aloof and snobby, and above all, to ignore my human when she is speaking to me.

however, now that there is a dog-sister involved, i must make her look inferior to me- not because i actually care if the human likes me better, but just to see the look on charlotte the dog's face when my human cuddles me after i come when i'm called.

she picks me up and makes the gooey voice at me, and scratches me behind my ear and tells me how very good i am to come when called unlike the dog who comes when called but only when there's a frisbee or a stick or treats involved.

when i'm getting all this well-deserved attention (which really i can't stand but don't tell the human) the dog comes over and sticks her nose on my bum (which i do not enjoy, by the way) and so i swat and hiss, and then the human gets mad at the dog, and i am satisfied.

that is the way things go around here, and it works pretty well for all of us, i'd say.
