Mom started her new job last week. Now starts the new routines, going to bed earlier, getting up earlier, changing play times and treat times.
Well, I decided that mom was neglecting one of her duties because of the changes. So I stood by the laundry room door and gave out a yowl like I was in distress.
Mom came running. "What's wrong Callie?", she asked.
I walked over to the litterbox and meowed, "This."
"Oh", said mom, "does it need cleaned?"
"Yes", I meowed and then for good measure I added a "Please."
I stood right there and watched mom clean out the litterbox. She just finished when I jumped in to use the freshen up facility.
A couple of days later I thought it was time to re-enforce the lesson I had just taught mom. I once again yowled to get her attention then asked her politely to clean the litterbox.
She looked at me and said, "I just cleaned it this morning."
"I know," I replied, "but PJ used it a lot today and I would like it freshened up, please." Got to add that "please". Mom can't say no to that and cleaned the litterbox for me.
So it appears that I now have mom throughly training to clean the litterbox when I say it needs to be cleaned. I just love how I have my mom wrapped around my tail!
