My realtor

No, I'm not buying another house. She's still in my life because she is such a cool person and we like each other. I wouldn't call us friends but definitely good acquaintances. :) We chat from time to time in email and I'd certainly give her a good recommendation as a realtor--she was great to work with and found me a great house.

Too long for a blurb but I thought this was a funny story to share:

Cute story; this morning Zach was bound and determined he WAS going with us when I took her [daughter] to school. While I was trying to shove the dog face back in the door her kitten Tibz zipped between Zach's paws and out the door. By the time she pulled the 85 pound determined german shepherd out of the way Tibz was in full flight down the driveway. She stood in the door and yelled "TIBZ!" He screeched to a halt so fast he left skid marks in the dirt. "I AM GOING TO KILL YOU IF YOU DON'T GET BACK IN THE HOUSE NOW!" Tibz reversed directions and I just barely got the door open before he bashed himself into it. I had no idea cats did that! VERY impressive :)

I did find my cats (when I had cats) highly trainable and though different from training a dog--worth the effort. I'll admit even having trained cats I think this story is pretty funny and remarkable. :)

It just depends on their mood. Sometimes they listen and you think they are the most intelligent animals in the world. Other times they give you a go to H____look and keeep on doing whatever.

I agree. Training cats is definitely a different thing than dogs--not at all that concerned about your approval. But, if you can convince them it is to their advantage they can be well-trained little varmints. :)

Wow! That is amazing. Most cats wouldn't even acknowledge being called and at best would flip you a bird as they went on their way! LOL

My cat Holly will come when you make one of two sounds...
the sound of money (rubbing your fingers together)
or
the clicking noise used to get a horse to trot or run

I started using those sounds when I got her. It makes her easy to find. Even if she is being lazy and doesn't want to leave her sleeping spot... If i makes one of those noises, she will meow so I know where she is.

My cat Biff came to the theme song of Andy Griffith Show. I never discovered if it was the song or the whistle that he liked (found annoying). But, if I wanted him to come to me even out in the yard when I gave him more freedom to rom around a bit in his advanced years...it never failed to work. Took me a long time after losing him before I could watch that show and hear that whistled theme.
