I'm Slick With A New Trick!

So you may not be able to teach an old mutt a new trick but the cat can pick them up some slick. What is this new trick you ask? While I'll let you in on the task.


I was staring out the window.
There wasn't much of a show.
A few dumb humans here and there.
 They were only worth a short stare.


Then a light came on.
Or maybe it was dawn.
Or maybe Cassie farted.
Either way, we parted.


Pat was watching me.
I had to flee.
Bah, let him watch the cat.
 I'll reveal my secret to even Pat.


I can now open the dishwasher door.
Hmm, plenty in there to explore.
I jump up and pop it open with ease.
It really is a breeze.


What is so interesting you say?
Isn't it empty at our bay?
Nope, Pat hides the cat toys there.
The ones I'd eat if I could at my lair.


String is bad for you.
Who knew at their zoo.
Would you look at that.
A toy for the cat.


Cassie thought I was crazy.
Bah, she's just lazy.
Sitting there gawking.
At least she wasn't squawking.


I've got it now.
It will never meow.
I ripped the end off of a wand.
 I'll go toss it in a pond.


Now my hard work is through.
Stop following me at our zoo.
I've got new tricks to learn.
Go give Cassie a turn.


Hmph. She just sits pretty by the window.
That doesn't put on a show.
 The cat needs to teach her a thing or two.
Must be more humans out there for her to view.

There is my new trick. Can you open the dishwasher that slick? Do you store toys in there too? It is a perfect spot at our zoo. Pat locks the dishwasher now though. That is just so low. For that the cat gave him sass. Then off I wiggled with my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

    1. Can open many a door
      Dishwasher, bathroom and more
      Then he goes for a nap
      and can become a snoring chap

    2. Well, everyone deserves a nap when the work is done
      And it's time for a snack and then a bit of snoring fun

    2. The cat figures it out
      Will sit all day until he finds what it is about
      lol you don't have one at your sea?
      It isn't even used by me

      Clean as can be
      Empty because never used at my sea haha

  9. And this is why cats blow
    dogs put on a better show
    they can put dishes in the rack
    not just yarn for an attack
    can mine do that at my bay?

  15. That's a pretty crafty hiding place. My cats only hang out on the upper level, and the dishwasher is on the lower level, so I feel like that's overkill for us. My cat likes to stare at me like I'm crazy too, but that may just be a cat thing. Or I'm really crazy. I hope the former.

    1. He searched for a while on how to get in

    3. He has tried to eat chicken and mushrooms and such

  23. Orlin is indeed an extraordinary Cat. That's pretty smart as he had to have watched Pat put the toys in there and worked out how to open the dishwasher himself. Also pretty sneaky to do it when Pat is not home.

    I had a kitty once that figured out how to turn on the dryer. He liked that warm heat felt and found out he could have it anytime he wanted. I never broke him of it and just let him enjoy himself.

    Hey, I'll be gone for two to three weeks as I've the Autumn work to do in the gardens and am painting and carpeting our music room. Definitely will do a post before the month ends though.

    1. Yeah, he is smart indeed
      Always getting into something at our feed
      Figuring out what has to be done
      To get what he wants before he goes for a run

      haha good way to be
      Enjoying himself with the heat at your sea

      Lots to do before the snow and cold
      Then can hunker down with that crap takes hold

  28. Almost everything in the house is a cat's toy.
    They chase balls and bits of string for pure joy.
    They stick their noses in forbidden places.
    And sometimes make the funniest faces.
    They're warm and cuddly and lots of fun.
    They keep a body hopping and on the run.
