Monday Mancats ~ training mom

Good morning kitties
first off,
I must say a little tribute
to my mancat mentor, Mickey.
He was the paradigm for mancats across the earth.
When I was just a little canmat-in-braining,
he was the one I looked up to, the example I tried to follow to mancatdom.

BIG Bonks to you dear friend ~~ Rest in Peace.

Today I want to share with you the training program
we have been working on with mom.
Every day she is learning the proper techniques to
assist us in our grooming and comfort.

Mom is learning to help me with my tail

She holds it gently so I can clean it

this way, I know she is viewing
how carefully we take good care of our furs

I am glad she learns quickly
now with a quick sniff...

I can get back to my nap

I have been teaching mom to quietly enter my blooblankie cave
with the softie scrubbie firmly in her hand

Then she can begin rubbing my chin

then a little over my eyes

and finishing up, gently on my head.

That is it, kitties.
Take note, this training requires daily guidance
and consistent practice.
Good luck and bronks for a happy day!

Treat everyone with politeness,
even those who are rude to you
- not because they are nice,
but because you are.

We love the look of your softie scrubbie Pierro - we have never seen one of those before - did your mom make it or could she buy it?? We imagine it is furry gentle on your sweet face. Does Miles have one too?
Wow Miles your mom holds your tail for you while you wash it - that is such a good idea as it saves having to keep catching it when it tries to escape!
Have a sunshine filled week boys.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said... can actually train humans? We think you are doing an excellent job! Teri said she'd like to give up her day hunting job so she could hold our tails for us (and we have one of those pink thingies too and luv it!
