    My dog will not eat a treat if she's on the tile in the kitchen. She will go to a rug, any rug, and eat it there. If she's on a rug already when I give it to her, she'll stay right there and eat it.
    Curiosity never hurt anyone. It was stupidity that killed the cat.

    Don't you wish you could ask, "OK, what's that all about?"
    "Neighbor, how long has it been since you’ve had a big, thick, steaming bowl of Wolf Brand Chili?”

    Sometimes when I feed Jake, he isn't interested in his dog food. He will sniff the bowl and ignore it. But, if I take some of the dog food and toss it on the kitchen floor, he will gobble it up like he is starving. Then ignore the bowl again.

    I even tried changing bowls.

    Maybe he thinks they are treats and not food, and he'd rather have treats than food?

    Or he thinks you're playing. Or he thinks you're throwing away his food.

    There is absolutely no reason you couldn't ask.

    Several of the Siamese cats that I've had in my lifetime would play fetch. We would tie a small plastic bag into knots and throw it, and the cats would go get it and bring it back. No other breed of cat we ever had would do that.

    One of our cats, when my kids were little, would come into the room and stare at the tv whenever Kermit came on Sesame Street. She would watch him until he wasn't on anymore and then go away.

    Every cat I ever had would come and want attention every single time I went into the bathroom or was talking on the phone.
    My cat will play fetch; sometimes she'll bring me something to throw. She also wants attention when I talk on the phone and when I say my prayers.

    One of my first cats would sit up on her hind legs and look around like a prairie dog.
