How To Train Your Cat | Not So Much Walking

Another Cat-astrophe!
A bit of walking, a lot of eating, and tons of tugging is more like it. BOL I feel like breaking into a song: "Who let the katz out? Woof, woof, woof, woof!" Let me translate for the ones still waking up: catwalk=disorder+confusion! They, the cats, have actually caused me so much uncertainty that I'm torn. What am I?

What am I?

Now to the real katz. While Maximilian our XXXL Maine Coon cat acts like the purrfect gentleman, I can't say the same about the twins. Bob and Jet aren't the cat's pajamas. Watch this:
I think Bob confused roll with stroll

He eventually took his first steps.
Look at the baby!

And here are two how to train your cat videos to demonstrate the perfect walking refusal technique.

And finally, The Cat Walk
(this is boring)
Not to be confused with Khyra's walks!

In the end, both katz were happy with their "walk". Jet ended up eating instead of cat food a bunch of grass too. Another way of saying this is, Momma ended up cleaning up after her. Haaaa...

Waaaait: I'm not done. I just found out it's my friend, Stella's, fourth birthday today and I want to wish her a Happy Birthday filled with walkies, purple armchairs, many fabulous walks at the beach and anything she desires. Gunther and Betty, I'm sure you'll get some cake too. Four toots for Stella!!!!

Who let the cats out -- too funny....


Twinkie... I'm confused. Treat u like a cat and the cats like a dog.
I thought I lost it.

Merdie is fun to walk with BUT I think those two would be REALLY REALLY 'fun' ! ! !

We think sometimes it is a thin line dividing cats and dogs.........

Hi Twinkie, I just left a very important comment for you ON MY BLOG... >>>>> I wrote on there that it was for YOUR EYES ONLY <<<< Now that means that when anybuddy else tries to read what I said... it won't work. I'm just sayin'. You asked... I delivered! OKAY.

My uncle cat Bob(funny same name as your cat) when he put on his harness to walk crouched down and refused to walk. Your kitties walked a bit, and then they finally got used to it.

Wow! That is amazing! (And brave!) Mom loves the "XXXL Maine Coon" description; Mr. Bufus, in his prime was 30 lbs - which probably put him in the XXXL category as well. But Mom never got him on a leash. (Or even outside, actually. He was pretty much a house potato!)

Bogey is fine with walking on a leash as long as I go the way he wants to go. If not, he simply collapses into a boneless kitty puddle.

Sagira said...

Happy Birthday to your friend Stella!

The cat walk videos were funny.

Stella, Gunther & Betty said...

Hi Twink girlfriend. Thanks for the birthday wishes. The beach was still gunky from all the storm run off so we met up with Mr. Wilson at Bark Park. It was a little muddy but I still had fun. Then mom and dad took us to Petsmart. I gots some pictures that I'll post tomorrow.

Okay, crazy cats on leashes?! You're mom is one brave woman!!

Oh yeah, mom wants to send ya something in the snail mail. Can ya have your mom email us your address?

Pug hugs! Love ya Twink,

We have never seen cats on leashes. Now our neighbor has two pugs that he walks all the time AND he has a cat who walks along behind them without a leash. When he sees us, he arches his back way up high and gives us a mean hissssssss - if only he knew what we could do to him:)

Happy Birthday to Stella. We will go send her some wishes.

Woos, Phantom and Thunder

Is that what they mean by catwalk? Who knew? I thought it had to do with fashion.


Madi and Mom said...

OH Twinkie what a GREAT post and video...Madi especially likes the swat, drop and roll in water approach to walking. Too funny

That was funny, we expect it takes a while for a cat to get used to a harness but they seemed to like it in the end.
Wags and kisses, Dinah Bridget and Elliot xx

Twix said...

Hehehe....Hahaha. That is too funny, Twink. Those poor kitties don't know what the heck is going on. They aren't as smart as us pups who figure out how to milk things like that for treats!
PS: I know you like 'em but I still have to say, I'm not a fan of cats....they are mean!
