Remember, oh, six months ago, when I was trying to learn how to ring a desk bell? I should probably be embarrassed to admit this, but I am still trying to learn it!
The biggest problem is that Somali and Abyssinian cats have grabby hands, not whappy paws (like some kitties I know). So I keep trying to grab the knob that rings the bell instead of hitting it. A couple of times I even tried to pull the whole bell closer to me.
My human heard that holding up the bell makes it easier for me to ring it, so she does that sometimes, to help me get the idea.
Don’t worry, there has been progress! I definitely know that when I ring the bell I get a treat! And that when my human accidentally rings it herself, I don’t. I’m just not that consistent yet with the ringing part. I really do want to learn this because there are desk bells at some of the places where I do therapy visits. Wouldn’t it be fun to ring the bells there?
Hey, I just rang it again!
