Yep, that’s what it is all about....POWER! If you are lucky enough to be a cat, and have a couple of humans who dote on you, you are in complete control. Sometimes I lay awake thinking of new ways to prove my dominance.
I always like to wait until my mom goes in the kitchen to make breakfast before deciding I am hungry. Usually she has already given me a helping of my favorite canned fish, but it never tastes as good as when she is trying to make breakfast. I'm good at getting right in her way when she is attempting to take a step. Tripping her is not above my game plan if she isn't paying attention to me.
The last few days I found the ultimate ploy. When she is standing at the stove, I let her know I am there and that my intentions are to jump on her shoulder. I don't care what she is doing. Stirring oatmeal, making coffee, buttering toast.....makes no difference to me. I can jump from the floor clear up to her shoulder. She has no choice but to catch me. Then I snuggle. Oh how I purr and rub my head under her chin. Since she has her arms under me anyway, I slip down, turn upside down and lay cradled in her arms, looking up at her with the softest golden eyes you ever did see. Dad tells her she can't just put me down. He thinks it is sooo cute. Like I have said before, I have him trained well. In his eyes, I can do no wrong.
So there stands mom, cradling me in the middle of the kitchen, while the oatmeal bubbles, the toast still needs buttering, and the coffee is getting cold.
Now I ask you to be the judge......which is more important?
