Training is hard work

I've decided it's time to train the Rumblemum. She's pretty smart (for a human) and I think she has lots of potential. She's picked up my first lesson very well!

When she gets home from work every night I've got her trained to say 'Smoochies... SMOOCHIES...' and lean in towards me. As a reward I give her a smoochie.

My next lesson will have something to do with tunas. Lots of tunas.

SMOOOOOCHIES!!!!
A bit of good news about that poor freezing kitty from the other day - the wonderful people at The Southern Cat Connection have rescued and named her Sunrise! Here's hoping that she finds a wonderful forever home soon. You can find out more about this kitty on Dashkitten.com :)

Hey Rumbles! Great trick! When you figure out the trick about the tunas...lots of tunas...please share it with us. You know I love my tuna (even though I am a dog)!
Happy Monday,
Oz

I have to watch my Mom. She scoops me up and buries her face in my furs. (I hate to sit on laps.)That stuff is for girls.

You are doing a good job with the mum training Rumbles.

Austin Towers said...

Good work! Perhaps when you have finished with your mum you can come and train mine!! MOL

Timmy Tomcat said...

Good work on training the Mum. I have Dad ready to give me a nice back rub when he meets me on the steps after that Werk thing he does. Rumpy gets a real head bump as Dad can lean right over and - Bump. And even the new little one is getting a nice head scritch.
Who says they are hard to train!
Maybe we should collaborate on a book?
Let me know
Timmy

Rumbles, sounds like your training program for your Mom is moving right along!

We're so pleased to hear that kitty was rescued from the cold.

Rumbles, if you keep looking that cute and adorable, your Mom will pass all your training at rapid speed:)

Good job on training Rumblemum. We actually didn't think the humans were trainable. You must have super powers. Purrs and paw-pars, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Rumbles, you're such a good teacher. I'm sure you'll have your mum trained to do a tuna trick in no time.

Katz Tales said...

Brilliant! But now you hve to make sure nobody steals her!

Humans are hard to train but it's worth it when you do!

Training humans is tough but they ARE trainable thankfully. As for the little kitty newly named Sunrise - we are SO HAPPY for her happy ending.

Hugs, Sammy

Fur Everywhere said...

Wow, good job training your human! We hope hers picks up the tuna lesson as quick as she did the smoochies one!

Katie Isabella said...

Our mom's are all lining up to give you smoochies, believe ME! Humph! Well, actually I too would line up to give you a smoochie. xxoox

Maggie @shelter-cats said...

We, Mickey Mouser and Tommie, have perfected the "Mind Meld" and only have to give "the look". Works every time, sort of. Of course sometime they give us treats when we were thinking about nip...
It's good for us cats to share techniques.

Marty the Manx said...

you made mom almost faint with that beautiful belly and happy face she went squeeeeeeee! Excited about the lessons, I am going to start now! Glad to hear about the freezing kitty.

Clooney said...

Well Rumbles, you are so smoochable, we'd smooch you too! Good luck on the tunas front!

meowmeowmans said...

Nice job with that training, Rumbles! Let us know how that tuna training turns out, okay? :)

mythreemoggies said...

Great news about Sunrise x

Jacqueline said...

Good job training your Mum, handsome boy!...We are loving that awesome photo of you too, sweetheart=such glorious furs!...Have a fun weekend, dear friends...smoochies :) ...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Um, Rumbles? I really doubt that it took much training to get her to do "smoochies". It;s going to be WAAAAAAAY harder to find some trick that makes her give you lots of toonas. You might need to team up with Hammy to do THAT.

Elyse K said...

I just clonked my face on da 'puter trying to give you a smoochie, Mr. Rumbles. OW! Could you please have Rumblemum give you an extra one for me? One for Diego too, please.

oooh, we think another excellent training class would be "WAND Toys"!
