Catmover, ME Newsletter, Vol. 4, Issue 39
Dog whisperers, horse whisperers, I’ve never heard of such thing as a cat whisperer.
However, I discovered a way to at least somewhat get a cat to do what I want it to do. I am now a Cat Traffic Controller, and you can be one, too.
Suppose you’ve got a big cat (9 years old) blocking the way to the pantry where there’s food and water and a litter box.
Now, suppose you’ve got a little cat (aka a kitten) who is pitifully trying and retrying to get past the one moaning like a near-dead zombie.
Now, suppose also you’re smart enough not to want to get between them – their cat-stack relationship is their business, right?
Simply take your handy dandy laser mouse and proceed as follows:
Point the laser to attract the little guy’s attention. Use the laser to sweep him into the living room and kill the light. As soon as he’s immobile and confused…
Aim the laser to attract the old lady’s attention. Use the laser to move her to the dining room area and kill the light. As soon as she’s immobile and confused…
Turn your attention back to the kitten: use the laser to move him from the living room into the kitchen, and viola!
You are now an official cat mover, and you never even left the comfort of your favorite comforter or the favorite chair where you’ve cat-napping in between chapters of a good book.
Good luck, and you're very welcome for the sound advice.
