|This is Delyte. Although we all know our names and know when people are talking about us, we don't always answer to it. We're cats, after all! But we all have certain words that we answer to. I have been trained to respond to the word "cat food" with a meow. The others are starting to pick up on it too. Our person thought it would be good for there to be some reward-related word that I would come for because 5 years ago I was lost in the woods in the back of our house and was too scared to come out to my name being called. She felt that since I was very hungry when I was lost, that I would learn to come to a phrase that always means I either get full dinner or at least a treat. Our person's sister lost two of her cats in a fire because they would not come when she called them, and she is trying to combat that. I also come for the word "ice cream" so they have to be careful when to say that.
We all also come for certain sounds, like dry cat food being shaken in the container, and the sound of the red dot generator being shaken, and also the sight of cat food cans and in my case any food being served in a small bowl. Because it is always ice cream right? Except when it is these yucky dark blue things or red things that smell like fruit ... The sight, sounds and smell of pizza is another one.
Weird, aren't we?!
