Tolerating the Puppy

Meow! How is every kitty, pup, and hamster? I tell ya what... putting up with this puppy can be hard work. I am constantly having to remind her what she is allowed to do and what she isn't allowed to do. Will she ever remember?

Well Mom is on her Christmas break, so I decided to come downstairs for a visit... a visit to see the puppy! I mean, I guess I have to admit that she is cute as a button. Don't ya think?

So I decided to humor her and see what she wanted to discuss.

Apparently Cornelia Marie had to whisper the message to me. OK, I will allow that. As long as she does not put my head in her mouth.

Well what do you know! She didn't put her mouth on my head. She was VERY sweet and well behaved. I could not believe it. So I took it upon myself to have a little play session with her. We batted each other with our paws (I did not extend my sharp claws) through the banister ... Oh, I did give her a little nip on the paw just to keep her in line (see video after this next photo). It was fun and we had a "moment".

Sweet huh? Oh, here is that video! Mom missed all of the playing, but she did get a small amount on this video.

Well it is back to a nap for me!

Way to go CM, great kitty cat behavior. We, errrrr, lack that particular skill.

Meow, Tia! It's so great to see you - and to get a post from you! Your puppy is DARLING and I'm glad she's starting to respect you as the alpha of the house! You're doing great training her!
Tail wags and mmm-row!

Oh thats cute. I think Cornelia Marie really wants to know what Tia is all about. All good unless Tia runs from her.

Stay safe, Tia, my gal! You just can't trust those furry beasts. If giving the claw doesn't work, try the fart in the face trick.


Lady Kaos said...

Awwww, how cute! You two are such good sisters.

The Daily Echo said...

That was very good Cornelia Marie! Way to go since Santa Paws is watching us now you know.

Tracey and Huffle said...

Tia, I think you are one amazingly patient kitty to put up with the puppy, although she is mighty cute. Love the gentle bite to the paw - gotta keep her in line somehow! Way to go my BFF!

Tia, you sure have taught Cornelia Marie how to behave around you. You are a sweet kitty sissy any puppy could wish for.

I'm gated off the stairs just like you are Cornelia Marie!
What a cute video!

Yer friend,

Kathryn and Ari said...

We had a feeling Miss Khyra would be doing some trash-talking about this post--that girl just won't give a cat a break.

Tia, we think this newfound friendship is great. Before long, the two of you will be thick as thieves!

Cats are soft and furry and fun to play with especially when they run. Sometimes I wish I still had a cat.
