Happy October! (or How to Train a Cat to Sit)

Bookmark and Share

Happy October, everyone!

Mmmm... I love the fall. When I was a kid there was a cat that adopted the street that my family lived on. He was a really cool cat. He liked ice cream. He was orange, so naturally his name was Tigger. He knew how to 'sit,' and 'stay,' and when my brother would rake up all the leaves in the backyard Tigger would wait patiently until my brother was done and then he would dash into the leaves and scatter them everywhere.

I think of that every time Fall comes around.

I also think of it when my dogs aren't listening to me and I ponder: FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WOMAN you managed to get a CAT to sit ON COMMAND. You had better hope your influence over animals did not peak when you were 9 YEARS OLD.

If you liked this post and you would like to share it, that would be super! Thank you so much!

  1. Awww. Tigger sounds like some mischievous cats I know in drug rehab.

  2. @Drew- Interesting. Tigger didn't make me think of drug rehab @ all. I wonder why... hmmm... maybe because THEY HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH EACH OTHER.
