Does your cat "appear" to be following directions?

Greg and Arnold understand........ "garage time!"

It means, drop whatever you are doing in the house and run to the door that leads to the attached garage so you can explore it again for the third time today...just in case something changed!

I have my feral cats trained for bedtime when I lock up. I signal with flashing the outside lights 7 times in quick succession. They know to get back to the area and settle down. They have a little bit of a snack when they get back and what they don't finish the possums and raccoons eat (for the cats safety). The thing is now even the possums and raccoons know the signal so I look outside on the cam and the cats as well as possums and raccoons all come running at the same time. They all eat together too and then while the cats settle down in the tents, the possums and raccoons clean up any dropped food and bugs. The raccoon takes off but the possum naps for an hour in the other tent and then leaves. lol

Toffee and Fudge understand their bedtime routine, and know the word "food". Toffee also understands the words "cuddles" and "kisses" and yesterday, we were trying to teach him that when we have an unfamiliar object on our heads like a new hat in this case, we're still the same person - I took it on and off several times and he seemed to get the message, as when I put it on at the end he came up to me and started rubbing against my legs.

Yammy sure knows "Chicken" and forcefully leads me to the fridge for his snack of tiny bits of fried chicken (minus the skin). He does this everytime someone even goes near the fridge. They all know outside, though they are all inside now since they have leukemia. At bedtime they stand in thebedroom doorway and stare, then come and meow and try to lead us there. If I tell them it's time for their medicine, they all run to the kitchen and line up, they absolutely love the 'lickables' that it is mixed in. 'Dinner time' has them lining up again and meowing loudly!
