Hey! It is me! Alex the cat! (AKA – the tailless wonder) I have to tell you my latest trick! I am SOOOO proud of it…
If you know me, you know that I only like FRESH water. Stale water sitting in a bowl is just not my cup of tea. No sir! If the water isn’t coming out freshly from a sink, I am not interested in drinking it. Can you blame me?
Well, sometimes it is hard to get my servants, I mean parents, to be on the ready for my hydration needs. I don’t know why they sometimes do other stuff rather than focus their full attention on my every need. The NERVE! So, sometimes, due to their laziness and lack of attention, if I am thirsty, I have to wait on them, and, well, that is not satisfactory. So, here is what I have learned to do….
My dad is Mr. Gadget. He loves getting the newest toys and technology. One of his favorites is automatic light switches (he also likes it because my mom is ditzy and forgets to turn off the lights – but I digress). He has one in the downstairs bathroom. So, every morning, after I eat my breakfast, and my servants slack off, I mean drink their coffee and type on their computers, I wander into the bathroom. I jump on the counter and walk right underneath the light sensor. As soon as my motion turns on the light, I let out a loud, quick meow. Between the light, and my calling, one of the dynamic duos comes into the bathroom and turns on the faucet for me, so I can have a nice and refreshing drink.
Pretty clever huh? You got any new tricks?
