Why am I wearing a dress in this random-looking photo, and what does it have to do with my toes?
When I am wearing an outfit, it is easier for me to sit still, and I wanted to show off my toes today! As you know, kitties’ toes are human magnets, and many of us are not shy about using them! It is just another one of our human manipulation tools. They help us to get humans to do what we want, or to be forgiven when we have “misbehaved.” (Although there really is no such thing as kitty misbehavior — all kitties are perfect. It says so right here in Sparkle’s notes.)
Cat toes are especially magnetic when they have special features like tufts sticking out.
If you are a ruddy-colored Somali like me, or many colors of tabby cats, you also have black paws, and lots of humans love black paws on non-black cats! Actually they like them on black cats too. Cat toes are some of the easiest and most effective ways we have to get humans to do our bidding.
Can I have a High Five?
