Our Smart Cat

How insightful are cats? Well, think about this.

Our cat, Robbie, has to get thyroid medicine. It’s an ointment that I rub into her ear. It’s not hot, not cold, doesn’t sting–but she’d still rather not have it, and circumambulates the whole apartment, staying just a step out of reach.

So we changed and had Patty try to corral this cat. That worked very well for a while, until last night. Patty followed the doggone cat three times (!) around the coffee table and quite lost her patience. And so did I.

“You’ve done it now!” I fumed. “We’re both mad at you!”

And waddaya know! Guess who made a beeline for the chair and hopped right up there to get her ointment.

She knew the jig was up. And took wise and appropriate action.

Smart kitty!

  1. That is an amazing story. She has been living around two smart people long enough to begin to fathom what the human ways are. Makes it easier, doesn’t it?
