One of our cats has the most curious way to tell us he wants to go outside.

We will be upstairs in the bedroom, and he comes to bother us. So we get up and follow him downstairs. At the bottom of our stairs, you turn right to go about ten feet to the front door. But this cat does not do that. Instead he turns left, making me think that he wants more food in the bowl in the kitchen, but the bowl is full. My husband finally told me this week that this cat turns left, walks all the way around clockwise through the kitchen, dining room, and living room to the front door. Our other two cats turn right and head directly for the front door.

He'll have you trained before you know it. My cat jumps on the table by my bed to let me know that he wants to go out. He's got me trained as well.

Believe me when I say all three of our cats have trained us in MANY ways. Our "detour cat" will be 13 this May!

Maybe he wants you to anticipate how great going outside will be for him--get you into the spirit of things! What do they call it? Delayed anticipation?

Maybe the cat is saying "Look at this cramped space! How do you expect me to live this way! Let me out!"

Naah, the house is big enough. Of course, he and the girl cat don't get along (it's all HER fault).

I think he's showing you who is charge and who isn't. He's probably living by the phrase "dogs have owners and cats have staff."

I just received this link from a friend. Thought fellow cat fans would enjoy it. Ceil, don't let your cat see this or you may have more trouble :)

I highly recommend the Clover Wonder Knitter http://tinyurl.com/kvf7n48
as a really quick and easy way to produce i-cord or spool knitted tubes. Its design makes the process much quicker than DPNs or regular spool knitters. It's at least half the price of the EmbellishKnit, and comes with two heads so you can make either 3-strand or 6-strand cords.

Thankfully, we don't use our mail slot! There's a mailbox in front of our house. That video is a complete riot!

Yarnlover - you should have warned us to not look at that video at work! It's hysterical. You can just picture that cat waiting all day for the mailman to play the game with him. Luckily the mailman has a good sense of humor.
