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. 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!

Patty Woodland said...

It looks like you two are almost getting along

Prancer Pie said...

We think the look from you said it all, Katie. MOL! We've often heard Mommy say,"get they while they're young and train them the way you want." You think she was talkin bout kittehz? We do!

The Kitties of Purring Pines said...

Excellent training Katie!

Fuzzy Tales said...

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!

Cory said...

Awwww Katie, tell us you let him have a bite. He is a growing boy.

Rene said...

LOL, rule #1, this is MY food.

Nerissa said...

Oh Katie... that Waffles Too. He's takin' over! May the purrs be with you. purrs

Selina said...

ROFL! I think he got the message, Katie!

PURRS!

PS - Poor baby ... I have to admit, I remember what it was like being the "newbie" ... boy I wouldn't go through THAT again for all the kibble in Catdom!

Cathy Keisha said...

Whoa! If looks could kill then you're an only cat again. MOL!

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

Allie: Excellent technique! If only Faraday were that easily intimidated...

Mr. Black said...

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.

Kjelle Bus said...

You mean you let Waffles Too clean his paw for NOTHING ??!!

Brian said...

You two both look very mannerly to me!

ABBY said...

Katie
I think you subtlety let him know the "rules"! :)

Daisy said...

The most important rule: girls eat first!

The Island Cats said...

Haha! You sure gave W2 the stink eye, Katie!

Katz Tales said...

Awwwwww, how sweet you two are together! Go on Waffles, whap her! And steal the food.

Mariodacat said...

ha ha- what a little cutie. Looks like he got your signal of "don't you dare touch my food!" Good for you Katie. Put your paw down!

Oui Oui said...

Awww . . .poor Waffles! And he looks so hungry too. We all get our very own bowls so there is no competition, in theory that is.

The Cat From Hell said...

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Rear Cod, Katie. He's HUUUUUUUGE! Stop feeding him!!!

Cara n Crew said...

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!)

Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie

Sam said...

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

savannahspawtracks.com said...

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...

cattywumpus said...

Dear Katie
Could you please come to our house and teach OUR kittens table manners??! You obviously have Waffles Too under control. We are impressed.
