the cat's secret revealed

Believe it or not, I've had nothing to hiss or spit about for a while. Sierra's been leaving me alone, and Inca's just been all snuggled up on the bed with Sarah. I'd hiss and spit about Inca getting all the attention, but I decided to change my strategy. Every so often, I jump up on the bed and even allow Sarah to put me in her lap, and I purr and make her happy. Yes, I do this next to Inca. I know I'm sacrificing my personal dignity, but a girl's gotta get her special attention.

Now I want you to understand that this is a very strategic maneuver. I'm making Sarah do things my way. I don't snuggle up by the pillow and look cute like Inca does. On the other hand, she seems to think she gets a say in it--she does get to put me in her lap.

If you're reading and you're still part of the population who think that cats are aloof and independent and all that jazz, get out from under your rock. Even science is catching up! Yes, they actually have done a study now that proves it. cats do manipulate their humans in order to get attention. Oh wait... I should never have admitted that. I am doomed now. I better go back to looking cute.
