Since the weather is not cooperating and we are back to glazed bird baths and icy patches in parking lots, I have turned the heat on again. Just now, when I wanted her to join me upstairs, she preferred her wooden bench in the kitchen because it is located directly over the baseboard heating.
I may need to lure her away with a blanket on the couch...to get the
companionship I am expecting, hoping for, begging for!
Expecting? Listen to me!
Sometimes we think we are calling the shots with our animals--cats or
dogs--but they are natural leaders. They assess us and gradually direct our daily activities to fit their needs, although we prefer to think we are controlling things. Just now, she has promised to watch televison with me if I get the blanket, then perform a trick, leaping for a feather on a stick! Gotta go perform now to get my way!
