    The trouble (for me) is getting them there.

    Onto your lap?

    First step is to sit down. Then start working on your computer, or, better yet, reading the newspaper or a magazine.

    Soon the cat will realize that you are not paying any attention to it and it will come and pester you until you stop what you are doing and start giving it an ear massage.

    I like how he explains, when encountering a dog for the first time, "No touch, no talk, no eye contact is the best and only advice I give for meeting a strange dog. Ignore the dog and let it come to you to get your scent and sense your energy — to the dog, those two things are your “name.” Then, let the dog decide. If it walks away, then it's not interested".

    Of course, if the dog chews your leg off, then he obviously IS interested.
    That's basically what I do. I sit on the ground so I'm less threatening, I face away, I have my hand on the ground away from my body so doggie can sniff from more of a "safe distance."

    Nah. I've never given my cats catnip, and frequently been entertained.

    I had a dog who would chew on rocks, even when he had toys for that.

    With people they know, yes. Strangers, not so much. It really depends on the cat, though. The cat I have now is quite demanding of attention. The other cat I had was happy being a few feet away, and rarely approached for attention.

    Well, I was assuming that the cat was wanting an ear massage from it's person. But, yes, strangers are another story to most cats.

    Right up to the point it decides that it's had enough and sinks its claws in you.

    Remember, in the Bible, it's the DEVIL who walks around like a roaring CAT seeking whom he may devour!!!! And it's the dogs who lick the sores of Lazarus....




    (I sure hope nobody takes the time to look up the other 26 verses about dogs)
