Table Manners

Hi everyone, Katie here.

I've got to hand it to the pea-eyed monster. He may be a little slow, but at least he's starting to learn some basic table manners.

  1. 1. always wash your paws before food!
    2. Make sure the coast is clear for food!
    3. Walk away if #2 doesn't apply!

    Yup! we'd say he is following all the rules!

  7. Awww, we feel sorry for Waffles Too, because we remember what it was like to come into the house with an existing cat (Annie). It wasn't fun, let us tell you! We sure hope that you aren't as surly with him as she was with us!

  14. You show great restraint, Katie! Never resort to physical force when a stern look will accomplish your objective.

    Best to train him now before he gets bigger. And bigger.

  30. That must be some look, Katie, to get Waffles Too to back down without the smacky paw :) we almost feel sorry for him there at the end...almost... :D (you bring back memories, or maybe that's nightmares, for Pip and Smidgen, hee hee!)

  31. It's okay...you eat first. I'll come back later.

  32. ok. Katie, not bad. You now have him somewhat controlled...but you MUST STAY ON TOP OF THIS!! There will always be a relapse to basic kitten behavior which you MUST correct...be vigilant...you can do this Katie...
