I talk a lot about my dog Zoe, but my cats Camu and Riff Raff have just as much personality and are also very clever manipulators. Camu will howl and meow until I do something for him. If I’m making a sandwich he wants some ham or turkey and he’ll prop up on my leg, which is his form of begging. He also likes to stand at the door that leads to our garage and yell until one of us lets him out. Of course, as soon as you let him out he wants to come right back in.
Riff Raff is the youngest of the two and that’s exactly what he sells. Sometimes Zoe will attempt to chase after him and he’ll yell and meow and cry like the world is ending, but also not move a muscle if she tries to chase him. Riff Raff also has a shower routine, sort of. If one of us is drying our hair after a shower, he immediately jumps up on the toilet and asks for pets with his cute little head tilt. Cats just know how to sell cuteness and trick humans, making them smarter than us which is scary. Watch how far Susan the cat goes to manipulate her human.
