Tuesday Work

Oh, oh. Mom thinks that I should maybe start doing some things for myself and become more self-sufficient (whatever that means). So, she partially closed the door to see if I would push it open myself. Now, understand, I am nearly 19 years old. I've spent enough years on this planet to think that maybe people should just wait on me and do stuff for me now. I think I've earned it.

But, no, Mom just sat on the other side of the door and kept calling me. I kept giving her that look that said, "Mom get off your butt and just open this door for me". But, she wasn't having any of it.

So, then what does she do? She gets out the BIG GUNS! Temtayshuns! Who can resist Temtayshuns? Certainly not me, but this door still looked too big to push.

So, she put a Temtayshun down on the floor and I thought I'd get a little paw action in. I got a couple of them that way.

But, enough of this. I just got tired and gave that old door a big push and got myself through. I think I need to send Mom back into training so she can learn to just wait on me again.

Mom and the Guy are going to be gone for Thanksgiving. They're going to visit my human sister in Pittsburgh so I won't be around for the rest of the week. I just want to wish all the kitty bloggers and their families a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Rusty...being a senior citizen and all, all doors should be opened for you on your command!

Our mom and dad wish your mom and dad a Happy Thanksgiving and give our best to your human sister and Nathan!!

We don't let a closed door stop us. It it is totally closed, we will pound on it till someone opens it. But you are a senior and should be waited on hand and paw!

Have a good Thanksgiving.

Way to go, Rusty! It's good for kitties to have what they call "enrichment" and not always make it so easy for them. It keeps the synpapses firing!

Glad to see you got your treats after all. It wasn't so hard, was it?

Happy Thanksgiving to your whole family!

That looked like neglect to us. Do you want us to report her? She needs some serious retraining.

We are proud of you for going for it with getting those Temptayshuns. Have a great Thanksgiving.

Nice work, Rusty! It's amazing what a treat will do!

It's amazing what a kitty will accomplish for a temptayshun!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!

That's just dirty pool. Your mom must not be very good at math. Does she know what 19 years old in cat years is for crying out loud!!!!!!!

Yes, Rusty... you've earned your own personal servant. I sure hope you'll be addressing this in her performance review.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Make sure they leave the treats out before they abandon you.

mew!

Ohhh, this is NOT on my friend. Not only should the door have been immediately opened but the treats should have been free flowing as you walked through!

Cory said...

Happy Thanksgiving Rusty! We are in shock that you were made to push that door open all by yourself. Sounds like elder abuse to us!

Parker said...
