“I had been told that the training procedure with cats was difficult. It’s not.”
“Mine had me trained in two days.”
All cat people know of this training. For some it takes two days. For others, perhaps two weeks or a mere two minutes. It is not difficult training, but it is subtle and extremely effective. Some may call it merciless.
These creatures are not stupid. They can tell time, order the filling of the food dishes, make us open and close the patio door ten times in five minutes, and cry the pity cry when attention is mandated. They know how to wrap their little paws around our
throats hearts so we will do their bidding.
And we do.
I have been trained for many years – about 42. In fact, it is so ingrained (obeying feline majesty), that I run on automatic. I have a job to feed, pet, feed and play whenever summoned, no matter the time of day or if I’d rather be sleeping. A human head will roll or I’ll get a paw in my face if I hesitate for one minute. It’s a servant’s existence that is played out willingly and lovingly…
If I know what’s good for me.
Speaking of two days…I’ll be on my way to biking heaven on Friday and an area that my cell phone carrier does not deem most important for internet service. It’s okay to be off grid for a while. I should be paying attention to my friend and the beautiful surroundings rather than gluing self to phone. However, on the off chance I find service long enough to post an adventurous photo or two to social media, you can find me on Instagram as Mary J. Giese or on Twitter as @BikerChick57. I’ll be back here in about two weeks.
