How to help your Human in the Garden by Bongo April 11, 2010

Dear Kitty Friends, Yesterday Annie decided she needed to pull all the weeds from the garden..Of course as any kitty knows, when your human goes out into the garden you need to help them. They are so helpless, They think the garden is just for work.

We know better.

Step One

Approach Boldly!

They may say they don't want your help but really deep down inside they do. You are a welcome distraction


Step Two

SIt down at their feet looking adorable. This will garner at least an ear scratch all on it's own.

Step Three

Begin weaving between their legs.

Step Four

Rub against their leg as you circle around on the outside.

Don't worry if they say your name in rritation it is just their way of justifying the fact that they are about to cave in and cuddle you!


Step Five

Sit down right in front of them and look up with your most adoring look.

This is the money shot, and if they hesitate to stop and pet you throw ina couple of plaintive Meows.


Step Six:

If your previous efforts have failed, flop down on your side at their feet.

This is a clear indication that you need and expect attention of some kind. I call it the flop and Purr it has a 95 % success rating.


Step Seven.


If all other tactics have failed to get your human to stop wroking in the garden and play and cuddle you this one is sure to  meet with success. Roll over and expose your belly, Be sure to reach out a tentative paw.

I call it the playful Roll. This one gets them every time!

Remember. They really do want to stop and play with you and cuddle you. Really… who wants to work when you are out in the garden in the flowers.


Que the Close up!

Hi Annie, I found your blog through Cute Overload, because I participated in the discussion about Once Upon a Time and Grimm. (Hi, I’m Mela!) I love that you pointed out the Honey Crisp thing. I know nothing about apples but things like really annoy me too. I LOVE this post about Bongo helping! Sooo adorable! I particularly liked the helpful advice to “not step on my toes while I try to trip you,” but my fave is when Bongo is lying sideways, and really, who doesn’t love a good flop and purr? The tentative paw kills me!! Bravo, well done!! 😀
