Young Adult Cats Require Table Manners
HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
Maybe I am just getting old. But, today’s young feline adults are about due some table manner education don’t you think?
Some of you think I am going to talk about how they pull out those sMART phones at the table, right? Naw…nothing near that. I think this is much deeper. Something their CATmoms and CATdads failed to teach them when they were wee kittens. Simple, proper table manners when dealing with humans and their human food.
First, don’t beg with those longing cat eyes…
Now with most humans that’s more than enough. But for Ceiling Cat’s sake, don’t jump up and reward the human by responding right away when they offer some silly tiny ‘lick’ of the goo on their finger! *ICK* Remember, they have already handled that food!
Let’s get serious Senior Cat coaches and mentors. We simply MUST teach these young adults to train the humans far better. How can any cat possibly get the ‘whole enchilada’ (meaning whole plate) when being willing to take *shudders* measly morsels.
Oh Cat! this is such a hard post for me to write. To see how The Kid Sage (aka TKS) allows her huDad P to pretend to share. This is so hard to observe and I know it is tough for all you other Senior Cats out there. We, older generation, have always trained our humans far better. We know the true GOLD is when we are offered any morsel we want off their plate…often before they even touch it. These young adult felines just don’t understand what they have lost. We must SAVE this next generation of feline plate cleaners!!
I finally could not stand watching TKS ‘beg’ for huDad P’s left overs. So, I took paw in paw and gave her some serious coaching. Her next attempt was far more successful.
She has learned to insure that Dad P understands that she KNOWS he has a ton of food on his plate and truly a huge amount to share with her. She has taught him she can ‘recognize’ the portions. (notice the possessive paw on the food tray…brilliant!)
Now she has learned to let him know he has ample for himself…and much to ‘share’ with her…heh…heh…the Kid is so coachable where food is concerned. (notice the dainty sweet little paw slightly reaching, as tho’ begging…but NOT begging)
*SCORE* She will now be receiving far larger amounts of human food to be shared between her and her human. (notice she never removed her little dainty sweet paw from that human food tray…BRILL!!) All I did, as a Senior Feline Coach, was teach her some more effective moves. So come on all you Senior Feline Coached…let’s get these young adult felines ready for a whole new world of feline domination over their humans’ overloaded plate of food!!!
I rest my point fellow Senior Feline Coaches. We have much work ahead, but my ‘grasshopper’ has learned. You can ask her after she is done licking her chops and cleaning her toofies from that large hunk of meat her Dad P just gave her.
PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
PeeEss…I, myself, HRH Savannah, would never, ever stoop so low as to even consider allowing any of the human food to pass through my toofies. But then we Senior Adult Felines have a far more sensitive and delicate palate than the younger generation. Actually, similar to what the senior humans are finding in their own younger human offspring. Strange isn’t it…how much we felines still have to teach the humans. Hopefully, we can train our next GEN to carry on. Get to it Seniors!! COACH!! TEACH!!
