A Well Trained Human

Buddy:  Welcome to our Sunday Smile post.  It's a beautiful day.  We hope it is, anyway. We're preparing  this Saturday night, so we don't actually know what Sunday is like yet, but if Jan is moving at more than a crawl and in one piece and our internet is working, it's got to be a good day.  

Cyndi:  Ignore Buddy.  He's just feeling a might frisky tonight.  In speech, anyway.

Cameron;  We have a funny video for you today.  This cat really trained his human well and he's waited on fang and paw. 

Merci:  Notice when he's had enough treats, he pushes away the bell and commences bathing.

If the video doesn't play, click here.

Micah::  We were thinking of trying to train Jan to do this, but we realized she'd have a nervous breakdown trying to keep up with the woofies' demands.  They're big eaters, you know!

Percy:  On the other paw, we could use one of these bells to start ringing early in the morning.  Maybe if we annoyed Jan enough with one, she'd get up before 3 AM and feed us earlier.  

Sam:  You're joking, right?  Jan is nonfunctional at 3 AM.  Heck, I'm not too interested in being functional at that hour either. 

Rusty:  Today is Black and White Sunday, so we need to post the last photo of Marcus' set.  

Marcus:  Yesterday we posted a sepia and an artistic copy of this photo.  I think I look best in the color dirt.  I like what our friends Frankie and Ernie commented  --

OMD you are SOOOOOO right.... DIRT is a MARVELOUS COLOR. We do NOT know why the Crayola Company doesn't offer it in the 64 count boxes. THEY SHOULD.  Let's hear it fur D I R T . it would make ANY Art... more ARTFUL Esp. if you had a CARTful.

Marcus:  It's great to have friends who understand my love of dirt.  Those guys have great artistic taste.

  1. Okay. WE love that bell, how cool is that, that he rings for service? Our human, however, says that bell would have to go. :-D

    Have a good Sunday. We hope Jan's moving at more than a "crawl" and that you do have your internet service!

  2. That is one smart cat!
    Our late 4-head used to tap to ring the little cow bell when he wants to call EJ.

  3. I like that bell. I think I like to train Mom for this too.

  4. We loved watching him ringing the bell but we think Mum would soon have lost it somewhere if we tried the same thing.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  5. WELL you do KNOW that I (Frankie Furter) have Dirt on my NOSE constantly. THAT is just how much I LOVE the Color and FEEL of DIRT.
    We think we should start a camp pain to get DIRT added to Crayon boxes the world over.

  6. I'm gonna have to get me a bell soon!

  7. Smart kitty! Mom bean says no way she is getting a bell, because we three would be ringing it all the time. We don't see the problem, MOL

    Have a great Sunday efurrybody!

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  8. That cat would drive me over the edge...or as my dogs say, it would be a short walk.

  9. Pooh and Patches are wondering if that would work with Mumsy. That is a very cool idea. Have a great Easy Sunday. Hugs and nose kisses

  16. We agree ... dirt is a GREAT color! :)

    As for that bell, we totally want one of those here! MOL!

    Hope you all had a great weekend, dear friends. Hugs!

  17. Our mom is nonfunctional nearly all the time. We need to check for a pulse regularily.

  18. WOW, we asked TBT fer a bell like that, but he said he would rather let us eat from his own dinner plate before he listened to a bell being rung all night. But that does seem ta allow fer some innerestin possibilities.

  19. MOL! Our mom needs some serious training too! Maybe they would give us a group rate? We hope the crayon people don't forget colors like mud, dust and hairball too.


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
