Yep, Stinkie is a genious! Seriously though, he is very smart. When he is doing something he shouldn't or heading in a direction he shouldn't all I have to do is say "stinkie no" and he'll stop and look at me. Then I can shake my head "no" or say "no" again and he'll stop doing it & turn back around to go back to where he was, then lay back down. Another example - stinkie always goes to the bathroom with me when I take a shower. Well the other night, I opened the cabinet door and he sat in front of it & started washing his butt before I closed it back. I said "tink I can't close the cabinet door back". He stopped washing, got up, moved over a little, sat back down & went back to washing. Now sure, I guess that one could be a major coincidence. But I'd rather choose to think that my cat is a genious. lol. Other examples - when he wants inside he knocks on the front door or pushes open the back screen door; when he wants out he is able to open the screen door with his claws & go out; if the doors are closed and/or locked & he wants out he'll stare at the door knob (doesn't always do him any good though because I don't let him out at night). And I swear he once said "mama" but that's another story. I'm beginning to sound crazy now so I guess that's enough bragging on stinkie. I can't help it! I love him! He's my baby!
