Yes, SIR, Mr. Redcat!

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I was researching something on the web last night when Red Cat came in and gave his very loud demand that he wanted something. I tried ignoring him for a while, but finally decided I could never concentrate with that persistent meow, so I followed him. He led me into the sewing room. I expected that he wanted more food, as that is where I feed him, but no, he didn't walk to the food dish, but to another part of the room. Then he just sat there expectantly. Did he want to be combed? I got out the comb and he accepted a brief combing, but that still didn't satisfy him. He kept looking at me like he wanted something. Then he walked over and sat down right behind the plastic I had laid on the floor on which I have been making something (but had picked up the pieces), and looked at the plastic then up at me. Ah, he wanted me to get back to work! I finally said, "Okay, you win, I haven't worked on it today." As soon as I got back to work on the project, he was satisfied and crawled back into his little bed.

This is the third time within a week that little monster has demanded that I get back to work like that. The first time, I thought I was probably making more of it than was really there, but with three times, I know that's what he wanted. What a slave driver that Red Cat is! He wouldn't even let me take Sunday off!

Apparently, Red Cat's ancestors are from Egypt. That explains the power trip!

Wow! That's pretty impressive - not only that he knew he ought to make you work, but also that you figured out what he wanted! What a smart guy Red Cat is!

it's tough when tyrants come in adorable furry packages -- who can resist their demands?

I don't know what is getting into that boy! It is bad enough that he tells me what time to get up in the morning. Usually 4:00 or 4:30. And once I'm awake, I'm unable to get back to sleep again for about four hours, so I may as well get up and feed him. (That's happened at least the last three days.) Then tonight when I called him to come in before dark, he came to the door, took one look at me, and tore off. He didn't come home again until just a few minutes ago, three hours after dark. I don't like him out after dark, as we have coyotes in the area.

I guess I had better go upstairs and have dinner quick before he demands that I get back to work on my project, huh? @#$%^ demanding males, anyway!

oh Tipsy does that as well!!! He likes to tease me these days and it so frustrates me!!!
now what I do - just before it gets dark I go and sit outside - whistle and then he comes to have a chat - I then pick him up and we walk inside - he isnt happy about it but at least I dont have to 'chase' him all over our property and try and coax him to come inside.
I discovered as soon as he heard me shaking the dry food thats when he started being cheeky.... now he just thinks i am coming for a chat!!!

This is so funny - I wonder if he thinks whatever you're making is for him?

Actually, what I think is behind it is he just wants my company in the sewing room. That's his preferred nap spot when I'm not in bed. And when I am in the computer room, usually either Purdy or Sheba is in my lap. Red Cat used to be a lap kitty when I got him six years ago. But he was only ten pounds then. Now he is 14.5 pounds, and I think my small lap is just a bit uncomfortable for him. If he stays in the computer room with me, that means he will be on the floor while another cat is in my lap, a situation not to his liking. If I'm sewing, he knows NONE of them will be on my lap. Yeah, I think he has it all figured out. That boy is no dummy.

That is too funny! I have the opposite problem - Trent is usually trying to get me away from any work or projects I have going.

Yesterday at lunch, just to remind me of who is in charge, he insisted that I put my lunch down so he could get some snuggles. So I did, being the doting mommy that I am. And no sooner than he jumped up on my lap, he jumped right back down. BRAT! I even grabbed him and put him back on my lap (sometimes he likes that....silly kitty!), and he still jumped right off. I guess he just wanted to see if I really would put my food down for him.

I laugh when people talk about "dumb animals"! Cats certainly know how to "condition" humans. My husband used to read the newspaper either at the kitchen table or lying on the sofa in the living room. Jamie found that he preferred the latter (he lies on Robert's chest and "reads" along with him). He started to fuss, sit on the newspaper, jump at it, etc., whenever Robert started to read it in the kitchen, so now he always reads it in the living room. That's their special time together.
