Hi there, my name is Tabatha. When our phone rings and Mom answers it, we dash to sit in her lap, or behind her or under her or just somewhere close to her and the phone. It just seems like a great time to get some good attention. Usually she is just working on this darn computer and we are always getting the busy signal from her while she is blogging.
Over there at Catster, they offer a few pointers to help with this problem. One is to put us kitties in another room while the beans are talking on the phone. Well, our mom wouldn't be able to talk, because there would be 4 or 5 of us to move to the other room. But that would be a good idea if there was only one of us.
Another thing is to try to train us to be quiet. Good luck on that idea. The way to do that is to have some practice runs. In other words sit down and act like you are talking on the phone, and when you kitties come running over, say 'quiet' and turn and ignore him. When he is quiet, praise him and give him some attention. Another really good idea is to keep a toy near the phone that you can entice the cat with. We like the toy idea. That will work. I hope our Mom does the toy idea. We might behave for that but it is so much fun to run all over her body.
Ok, here is the deal on the Free Kibble questions. Everyone knew the answers so I would have to give away 25 prizes and I just don't have that many. So I am going to a different source and I am NOT telling where I am getting them. I am going to count the correct answers that we have already and then continue on. First person to get 10 questions correct, wins the prize.
So, here is a new question.
What cat breed has an unique hiss called a snake Hiss?
Good luck everyone.
As for the question, we say it's the Savannah breed...but please don't include us in the draw! Thanks.
We think the answer is B???
We are going to guess Savannah cats, just from the process of elimination.
Years ago (before us) mama had a kitty (Sunshine) that would answer the phone if she got there before any of the humans. She would paw at the receiver until she knocked it off the phone.
So, the phones in mama's house that weren't wall hanging were all covered over with a basket so Sunshine couldn't answer!!!!!!!!
I think the answer to the question is the Savannah cat.
Have a purrfect day!
We wait until mom is on the phone and then we get in to scuffles, knock things off her desk and make a ruckus where she can't reach us while she's sitting. We can be completely controlled by the laser toy, though, except the old ladies who hog her lap in the first place.
We don't pester when Mommy's on the phone, but we do at any other time! We are Big Pests, according to her.
We're going to guess the Savannah breed!
We don't know the answer to the question but we'll guess the Savannah.
Answer: D. Savannah
Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)
My pups also just love taking advantage of the unbusy hands when I'm on the phone!!
"The Boys" are good when we're on the phone, but when someone comes to the door they run ahead of us to get there first. And we have to be careful we don't trip on them.
