    Or to do things.


    I know some cats, like our jenson will play fetch

    But dad has recently teached his brother lewis this cute little thing.

    Everyday lewis gets a bit of cheese [too get him inside while dad feeds the birds] and its always in the windowsill in the livingroom. Now what we do is put the treats or cheese down on the sill, keeping a hand over it and say "give me a kiss" or "give us a kiss" and he will lick your face, or rub against your face when you say it, i've tried saying other things like "want the treats?" or "rub my face" but nothing, he only responds to 'kiss' its so cute!!!!

    I taught Scamp "go to bed" and he runs upstairs to our room,it's so sweet to find him on the bed(where my pillow is) I'm sure there are other things but my brains not coming up with them at the moment:D

    Dorrie plays dead and when I shake her treat tube she sits there waiting, swishing her tail from side to side.
