Hello there furiends.
I have taught my Human to fetch and it occurred to me the other day as I was running her through her paces that I should purrhaps share this information with my feline furiends.
First, it is a cat’s duty to swat every toy they receive under the refrigerator, sofa, the bed and any other place that is hard to get to. Once you have reduced the number of toys in your toy box, you begin phase two of the feline toy procedure.
Stand in front of the object where much of your toy treasure is stashed. Either give a sad meow or make a lackluster attempt to stick your paw underneath. The human will notice and take pity on you and, if you have trained them properly, they will go and find a long object to stick under the piece of furniture to retrieve your toys.
When the human has finished (and make sure they do a thorough job), the floor should look something like this.
Normally, your human will survey their work and feel quite good about themselves for retrieving your toys. You must then let the human know you are not impressed, nor is their effort anything special., but something felines expect.
I hope this little primer on human training has helped you. Remember, this activity serves three purposes:
- A well trained human is a happy human.
- You are keeping your humans healthy by providing them an opportunity to get some exercise.
- All your hidden toys are retrieved which gives you many more hours of fun swatting them back under the furniture.
