So, I think my cat is trying to train me.

Last might between 2 and 3 in the morning, I was awakened by the boy cat pawing on the window pane to be let in. All the bedrooms are ont eh second story so he was on the roof, and usi9ng his most pathetic meow.

He did this lonce last year, and I go the ladder and he came over to me and I took him down the ladder with me, but he didnt' really like doing that. Interesting enough, the girl cat was on the roof the very next day last year fter the boy cat, oly she got down by herself.

So, back to last night... I got the ladder, but this time he would not come hear me, but just kept walking back and forth in front of the windows and pawing at the window panes while using his most pathetic meows.

Now, I realize that if I opened the window and took the screen off to let the cats in, that they would then insist on coming in that way, so I just refuse to do it. Although I think that is the new 'trick" the cats are trying to train me to do.

So, I gave up on the ladder, put it away and just sat int eh lving room for about 15 minutes, then open th efront door and called Jango (the boy cat), and I could her him meowing up on the roof still, but I just closed the door.

Five minutes later he showed up at the back door. So, I won this round. I do admit though that I did entertain thoughts of having a cat door put into one of hte screens of my bedrron window, just so these training session ordeqls are greatly shortened to where I am not up for over half an hour in the middle of ht enight

Yes, it is very difficult refusing to be trained!


Cats are the ones that devise the torture techniques for getting information for black ops in prison camps. Don't push them too far or you might be sorry.

When I was a kid I had a cat that could climb the huge tree beside the house and drop onto the roof in front of my bedroom windows. We had no AC, the windows were open. She got let in a few times, and then we caught hell for doing that. Dad put a sheet of tin on the tree about 6 feet off the ground as a deterrent. Didn't work. I don't remember how we discouraged that little habit, maybe we moved....

I am sure out cats get on the fence and then the roof. I have seen squirrels hot form a tree to the roof, so i guess the cats might be able o do that too. I have just never seen the cats that far out on the branches.


Man, I thought I've had some demanding and goofy cats but I think you've got me beat!

Just remember that you were chosen to be at their every demand.


They won't quit until your so well trained you respond automatically. I speak from experience as my cat's personal servant/slave.
