Formerly Forbidden Friday

Rocky: Humans foolishly attempt to convince we cats that certain things are forbidden to us. But with persistent strategic ploys, it's quite simple to turn all forbiddens into formerly forbiddens. A critical element of this strategy is to simply ignore humans when they tell you something is forbidden -- just keep doing it over and over and over and over and over and over and over again until they realize it's much easier to just let you do what you want to do.

For instance, I'm sure we've all been told that sleeping on the kitchen counter is forbidden. The key is to continually sleep on the kitchen counter until your human realizes it's much easier to just put a comfy leopard print towel up there for you so you'll have your own bed. Trust me ... they'll soon understand that a few furs in their clean dishes is much less trouble than shooing you off the kitchen counter 24/7!

So true. You have really flamboozled your human, Rocky. My cats only get white towels.

YOU WIN!

Millie said...

Very True. Gizzy did that. Mom put a SPECIAL towel on the counter for him. He used to watch her cook her dinner.

We try that. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Doesn't stop us from doing it though.

I try so hard but the male refuses to listen. You are lucky Rocky.

Persistance is why we are allowed to stroll across, sit on and sleep on our kitchen table...of course we've compromised and don't do it when we have company.

Bendrix is so impressed he is wiping a tear from his eye. you have trained your beans so well. it is a beautiful thing.

ML said...

Rocky, I like the way you think. You are a smart fellow. No wonder Bendrix is so impressed.
This is one of the best posts I have ever read in my life. And even though I am only 8 months old, I know an important statement when I read it.
Bravo, Rocky!

Beans really are stubborn aren't they? If they would just learn the first time it would save everyone lots of trouble!

Who on earth has the cheek to dictate to cats????

Happy Moggy said...

This is a perfect example of what makes cats special pets. Being someone's best friend does not mean always doing what they want!

Black Cat said...

Cats should go wherever they want - except Evil Ovens, evil loos, etc. ;
