Puck’s favorite spot these days is on top of our china cabinet. This was a favorite spot of Chris’s a few years ago but now that he has gained weight, he can no longer jump up there. Puck can’t jump up there either but he has learned how to use me as an intermediary step. I don’t speak cat so I am not sure how to explain how I know, but when Puck wants to get on the cabinet he somehow communicates that desire to me and I bend down so he can jump on my shoulders. I then walk over to the cabinet and he jumps on top of it.
Floki sees what s going on and I think he put two and two together because on Friday morning he stood on the counter and cried at me. Again, I don’t know how I knew but I bent over and he jumped on my shoulders and I walked him over to the china cabinet where he jumped up and met Puck who was enjoying his morning in peace.
I should have not let Floki interrupt Puck’s peace but I was curios what Floki would do.
He spent a little time investigating…
until he annoyed Puck and forced him to leave.
He then settled down on Puck’s spot.
When he was ready to get down he didn’t know how. It’s an easy jump to the couch but Floki didn’t know that so he needed my help getting down and somehow I knew that too.
Since then Floki has talked me into getting up there a couple more times but I won’t put him up there with Puck now. He has also learned how to get down
I’m sure others are good at understanding their pets and I’d love to hear your story.
