    I got him to chase after a rolled tennis ball but he lost steam when he got to the mat, i put the ball next to him and he rearranged himself weirdly

    He will also drag toys up to you and paw at them when he wants to play

    everyone loves this anxious boy despite his late night yelling and rattling of doors (where did the people go?? hewwo???)

    PotteryWalrus halfway hideous and halfway sweet

    I had a huge break though with dealing with Jet's Shenanigans when I realised that he's got more brains than any cat I've ever previously owned and is therefore much more easily bored.

    So now when he's being a devil and getting into things I want him to stay out of, I give him a puzzle to do. The more bastardy the behaviour, the harder the puzzle.

    His favourite kind of puzzle is 'how do I get this food out of this box/bag/other object' so this morning I took the three foot long cardboard box my door gym came in and stuck a handful of his sausage treats in one end so he could hear them rattle and smell them from the open end, and let him go buckwild on it.

    He is Looking Respectfully 0_O

    Real talk, though, I eat a lot of meals on my bed or on the floor because joint issues make tables uncomfy and I've managed to train every cat I've had not to stick their head in my food the same way. If they look too interested, I offer them something I know they don't consider food - broccoli is a good one, for example, and I accidentally made Cinders regret all life decisions by offering her a vinegar-covered chip/wedge yesterday.

    That way they learn that even if I am eating something and it might smell good, humans are Weird and Arcane and will often consume actual garbage plant items and to not trust their senses. I just find it interesting that cats are smart enough to come to that conclusion XD

    Lazarae You won't be the death of me

    My dad trained the family cat off trying to steal his food by offering him a piece of ham. Covered in his "my everything is burning" hotsauce.

    all the cats will Sniff food, but most of the time wont go for it unless you leave it unattended. Microwave is unattended-food-holding space

    Stella will Approach (thats what she had just been doing on the table but i said "ma'am these are my blueberries why would you eat fruit")

    Eta: by sniff i mean Hover around, maybe approach, or just sit next to you hopefully because youre eating shrimp chips and "ooooh those have actual shrimp powder, human, give me the shrimps"

    chthonicfatigue Bitten by a radioactive trickster god

    Mitten is an undeterrable food sniffer, even though she knows I will only offer the worst bits off my plate (jalapeƱos, asparagus, pickles); if you have chicken or fish, she will climb on your shoulder in the hope that maybe she could sneak a bite from your mouth before you notice (no cat, you are not that sneaky.)

    Interestingly, she won't take butter or cheese if offered, but will steal it. Buttered bread on the table? Expect it to be covered in raspy tongue-marks if you leave to fetch a drink or more food.

    meanwhile, my Angel can and has dragged such nonsense as tomato chunks and orange peels out of the trash to snarf, as well as being summonable by anything that smells of garlic
    we like to joke that we have a pet raccoon :p
