As we all know when something floats, flys, or walks by, us cats jump, swat, follow, or just ignore it. Humans on the other paw stare for hours at the same thing and dont notice anything else.  That else is us cats of course.  This prolonged staring causes their eyes to need funny glasses and they get bad posture.  “Hey 4-eyes I’m talking to you!”

“Papa this is what will happen with too much TV!”

It’s up to us to help train them to focus on other things.  As you have guessed I have been talking about computers, phones, TV’s, and tablets.

Our humans are addicted to computer things like a laptop, tablet, or phone. They stare at them for hours.  Leaving us with only a 1/2 full food dish and enough water to only last for a few days!  To help your human you must distract them from their hypnotic glare at this screens. Here are some ideas to do this.  You can come up with some of your own also.

The first thing to try is to stare at them as much as they are staring at the screen.

A laptop is great to scratch one’s whiskers and flex one’s paws on the keyboard. Don’t worry about which keys you hit or walk on your human will always jump and play or push at you.  This means they want to play more.  Keep doing this until you get bored or the world “delete” comes on the screen then go take a nap.

A tablet and phone require more skill. If your human is playing a game then time your tail swishing with the human’s game. They will be delighted to take a break and give you some scratches. Watching TV a is another human addition. Too much watching can be bad for their posture and eyes. While they are watching something on the screen you can use them for a quick nap. But remember we must make sure they move around a bit. The flat screen TVs are great for stretching and showing off one’s pretty fur. Tapping actors on the cheek of a actor on the screen is a fun game and will surely get your human moving. Stepping on the button on the powerstrip will turn off the TV. But don’t do this  too much because humans aren’t that bright and may take awhile to figure out what happened.

When all else fails you can always use a secret weapon for getting what you want from a human. Yes the CUTE look. You can try practicing this in front of a mirror.

When your done practicing. Give them the “cute look”. This should take them away from whatever it is they are doing!

One last trick we have if nothing else works. Yes you guesses it. The thing no human can resist. Turn Upside down!!

No human can resist this.  Also try to get your human to read a book.  It’s a little better than watching a screen.  Also with books you can play with the pages. Biting the pages is so much fun also.

Yawn I’m getting so sleepy.

Tigress Stravyn® Learns to Drive a Car

Adventure, animals, bengals, car, cats, corvette, cute, funny, kittens, lol, tiger

Usually I’m busy going places when I’m not napping or on my cat wheel.  So I thought I should learn to drive.  Humans start at 16 to drive well I’m now 23. 23 months that is!   I always just sit in the car while My Human, Papa, drives around.  Meow! Left I yell. Meow right. Papa almost always never listens.

This is a steering wheel. This driving thing doesn’t look hard so far.

Which car should I learn in.  Hmmm Grandmaw’s car maybe?

I notice that humans always seem to yell in their cars. And they give mean funny faces. I better practice that. “Meow, road Hog!” I yell. “How was that papa?”

I help Papa run errands.  Her we are just leaving the bank.  “Meow!Papa drive faster or let me drive now”

Wow my first or is it my second lesson!  Seat belts on. Papa says green lights mean go and yellow lights mean go Faster! “Got it papa”
“Meow.  Papa I’m driving!”  Look papa a dog in a car! Oh, sorry that was just a long haired guy. Hmmm or was it?

  Others cars follow so close!  That funny one keeps on following me!

“Hey Papa that car following us has such pretty lights on the top of it! But it’s so loud! I better pull over so I can tell them how loud the sounds are coming from their car.”

It’s a police officer.  He wants to know if I saw that Red light. “Meow, yes officer but papa never told me what the red lights meant.” I meow cutely.

Can I see your license the officer asks.  “Meow, sometimes dogs have to get licenses but not cats!” I tell the officer.

Oh no he’s asking for Papa’s autograph. I wonder why?

Its getting late so I better drive Papa home. There’s  that car with the human with the long hair. Wait I think it is a dog driving like me! “Now that’s crazy!” I meow loudly

Such a long day. I need a rest. Remember to check out my earlier blogs. The links are below. Meow!
