It’s been a while since I’ve done a “getting your human’s attention” post.
Today, I have a simple trick for you. Let me explain.
Yesterday evening, my human was going around in the house, from one room to another, claiming to be completing what she calls “household chores.” What I could see she was not completing in the meantime, is having her attention on me. So I decided to show her what house hold means. I waited for her to stop and I acted. I sat on her foot. Ah!
She didn’t dare move for several minutes. Bliss.
P.S.: My human is not very pleased that I’m posting pics of her slippers and apartment pants on my blog. She thinks that’s not very stylish for a French kitty. Humans’ preoccupations, really! As if people and, most importantly, furry friends, were going to even notice her slippers while there’s a me, Texas, on them.
When I was living in France, I didn’t have a garden like I have now.
My human and I spent some time at my human’s mom’s apartment. My human’s mom would keep me when my human was away too. She didn’t have a garden but she had a balcony and I had permission to go on the balcony.
What I liked most was when no human was watching, I would jump on one of these flower pots and smell the flowers, eat carnation buds or grass. Of course it was strictly forbidden because the apartment was on the third floor. But that was so much fun!
There was another place on the balcony in which I loved to go. It was kind of like a bookshelf but with a big, thick plastic cover on it. My human’s mom was keeping vegetables and some plants inside. I loved to hide inside!
Sorry my furriends, my human has been very busy the past days.
How was your day? Mine was so-so. I was grounded because the above of my right eye was a little red. It is itching too. My human thinks I am allergic to some plant outside (I had the same problem last year, and so had Milou to a lesser extent, but it went away just like it came… the vet said it might be an allergy) so I could not go outside today.
I successfully ran away twice because I’m just too quick for my human. But other than that, I had to stay inside. Played a little with my human, which was good. Napped a lot. Ate some food.
My human’s husband brought a paper bag tonight. I love paper bags! So I had some fun inside!
I have to say that I was very not happy when my human got an iPad about 2 years ago. More time I got stolen.
Anyway, about a year ago, she came to me and Milou, all happy to show us what she calls an app (?!), as if it was some kind of toy for us. But that was not funny. Yes, there was something moving on the little black screen. Was it real? No. Was it funny? No. Did it smell catnip? No.
[My human cannot find the pics of me and Milou in front of this silly thing. I really have to start monitoring my human’s work!]
In 2011, he decided to add to his creative portfolio by devising a Friskies app for the Apple iPad featuring simple video games that humans could play with their cats. True, most cats walk by the iPad and pay no bother. But some of the more curious ones find the floating fish on the iPad screen interesting enough to paw. Nestle Purina’s experiment has garnered 500,000 downloads so far.
Ok. Just because this app is not sophisticated enough doesn’t mean we are not curious. Milou and I are very curious cats. And yes I know about Karl Lagerfeld’s cat but Choupette is just a kid!
Now if you would excuse me, I have more important things to do than to play with a silly human toy. I need a nap.
