Hi Barbara…..This is Rocco! (AKA Rico)
This lady you sent me home with calls me Rico now. She said she knows some DOG named Rocco (imagine giving a DOG a great cat name like Rocco!!!). When she said Rico Suave is the name for a macho, good looking, totally cool lady’s man, which can also be a real bad guy to mess with,… I couldn’t really argue with her…..You know that describes ME completely! I think you picked a good human for me to live with. She seems pretty trainable. On the way to her house in the car, I taught her to scratch my head every time I meowed (real pathetic sounding, HEH HEH) she caught right on. When we got to her house, guess what? I have my very own room! I don’t even have to share my food with anybody! And I have my own litter box! This lady gets really happy and tells me how great I am though, when I use my litter box. (I hope she doesn’t expect me to praise her for using her toilet)……I mean…where else would I go the bathroom?!? So far I’ve trained her how to scratch all the parts on my body by moving them under her hand. Hopefully she learns the order soon…head, back, head, neck, stomach, head… so I don’t have to move. She gave me a “shower” last night! Have you had one of those? When I saw it involved water, I meowed a lot cuz I heard cats aren’t supposed to like water, but when that warm misty stuff sprayed out of that little hose all over my body and she started massaging me all over, I couldn’t help but lean into it. I even forgot to meow. She tried to stop too soon though so I swatted at her so she would do it some more….and she did…see? trainable!!! She let me lay on her bed after my shower while I dried off. Her bed is a lot bigger than mine….I think we need to trade….I’ll have to work on that one….She kept trying to take my picture later, so I made a scrunchy face, thinking she would stop…..she just thought it was cute….some humans are so goofy! I mean…look at this pic!.....Cute?!? Really?!?
Oh well…she IS trainable….and she seems soooo happy just hanging out with me… (but who wouldn’t be?) I’ll keep you updated to let you know how her training is coming along. Tell all other cats I said Hi!
