Secret Animal Sign Language

I think my dog told my cat the house rules...


Somehow she knows that she can be on the rug but no further...look, her toes are in bounds, even if her nose is not...

She knows the dog is choosing to break the rules here and she can't look...


Somehow she just knows where she is supposed to go and where she is not. She doesn't go upstairs, she doesn't get on the counters and she knows that mom and dad's room is OFF LIMITS. She even has it figured out that her job is to lick the plates clean so the dish washer doesn't have to work as hard (is that gross...sorry...each family to their own I guess).


How did she learn these things. She technically has different rules than the dog. The dog can't come upstairs...she could if she wanted to, but she doesn't...because the dog doesn't.


Can dogs and cats communicate? Can they tell each other secrets and plan mischief? Can they teach each other the ways of the world?

maybe they are lovers. just sayin. also, my dog licks the dishes in the dishwasher, too.

Our dog licked plates too. AND, if we had HAD a dishwasher when I was a kid, maybe I wouldn't have had so many dinners that tasted like dog slobber.

I'm pretty sure dogs and cats communicate, but that they generally restrict their conversations to political and economic topics.

Maybe Amanda should get a dog so her cat knows how to behave.

Although it is very difficult sometimes to remember that all dogs are not boys and all cats are not girls, if Chels is right...then my pets are lesbians. Pet love knows no bounds...


oh man, I can't spend anymore time thinking along that avenue...
