Hello, friends! Once again, it's been some time since I've gotten the opportunity to blog. I do keep busy, though - after all, it does take considerable time to maintain my gorgeous calico furs! Also, Mom takes some watching after - because if you don't keep an eye on her, she's liable to do something crazy - like go out and buy a book like this one:
I don't know - I have looked it over carefully, and given it the sniff test. It doesn't SEEM to be dangerous. But I certainly am not signing up to perform tricks like a trained seal. No balls will be balanced on MY pretty pink nose!!!!!!!!! As if!!!!!! And yet - I did read over Mom's shoulder about using tuna as rewards. IF tuna is involved, I might condescend to participate.
So I guess my opinion for right now is that I am reserving my opinion on this particular harebrained idea of Mom's until I see what might (or might not) be in it for me.

** Mom Note: For all her skepticism regarding this newly purchased book, Olivia has been clicker trained a bit in the past, and already knows how to target, sit and perform other simple behaviors. Not only that, she greatly enjoys it and catches on quickly. I do think it's important to provide as much enrichment to our cats as possible, especially as they do tend to lead more circumscribed lives than, say, our dogs, who get out and about in the world much more routinely.
