Anybody remember that tv commercial with the cowboys literally "herding cats"?
That is one of my all time favorites!
Cardigan Corgis are good for herding cats, too! Ours (since passed*sigh*) used to herd anything- a half dozen or more tennis balls, a few cats... His first experience with being put in charge of kittens was hillarious, though. Bird decided it was time (again!) to move her kittens, and decided that the dog (who happened to be sitting in front of the door between the two rooms she was running between) would make a good babysitter while she was getting the other kittens moved, and left them with him one at a time as she took another one to the new "hiding place"
. When she gave him the first one and took off to get another one, he was sitting down, with a 2 week old kitten at his front feet, looking at the kitten, then up at us, like "What am I supposed to do with this? Am I qualified?"
I thought I would roll off the bed laughing!
And then she'd come and get that one, and leave him another to watch...
The cats didn't mind being herded, though, as herding would eventually lead to "neck fleaing", though the dog tried not to do it in front of us- lol! The evidence was always there, though- a happy, slimy necked cat! Ugh!
