Did you educate him that the electricity for the telephone can't get through the knots! It's really like tying a knoe in the hose! nananana

Then I'll rephrase my inquiry. Did Seven have no unhappy consequence from being on that table, since she was not caught at the time? Do you think she could connect being yelled at with an earlier deed against your rule, if you chose to yell later?

I have had pet experiences where a pet would do something against trained rules and not be caught in the act, yet they would act as if they were feeling either guilty or in dread of punishment (hiding, slinking away instead of approaching for petting, etc.).

I think she's a cat, not a moral agent. She knows she'll get yelled at and shooed off the table if we catch her, but I doubt she has a sense of "right" and "wrong".

Dear cat,

It's lovely to have you snuggled up here... though it's a tad difficult to type with you resting on my wrists, I'm managing.

However, dear cat - epic fail.

Really.

Looking innocent when I question you about having been on the dining room table - a place forbidden to cats - just fails when you *leave one of your toys on the table*.

Nice try, kitty, but no long smoking thing.

:)
