Millie Monday

Mom has finally figured out that when I say "Meow" I want scritches. Recently she has learned a new trick. When she is sitting on the couch and there isn't any room for me an I tap her arm gently with my paw, she scootches over to make room.

I won't make any snarky comments about how long it has taken her to learn this new trick, but hey, at least she's learning.

Hmmmm - well, you'd have to concede that she's an outstanding mom in many other ways, so perhaps you'll overlook that she's a slower learning of pusscat language. That said, I bet she's absolutely thrilled that you've persevered, continue to want to talk to her AND have her give you scritches AND that you wanna sit next to her on the couch. Next step, Millie - on her lap and often. Okay? After all, if she's willing to learn new tricks, so should you be.

Some humans are slow learners. At least she is trying.

The Beins learn slow, but they learn well.

BTW, you suggested simmering pork ribs in tomato sauce. TBT is gonna try that cuz he thinks it sounds GREAT!

Millie, your persistence is paying off. Pretty soon you may have mom Lynne trained to do all sorts of handy tricks for you. You are a great coach 'cuz you you have lots of patience & understand the human psyche. Human beans can be a little slow at catchin' on to cat language, but if you show'em a trick a bizillion times, they usually catch on. Fortunately, you have a very smart human who learns quickly. Maybe you can can make some training videos for other cats on How To Train Your Human. Bet it would go viral real fast. Us Kit-tehs can always use help training our peoples.
