The Captain is new to cats, and so we are always marveling at their strange and mysterious ways. Frankie won’t come when you call her name, but she is easy to catch. Simply put an open box or paper bag anywhere in the house and she will magically appear inside it.
Bob comes when you call him (more specifically, he comes when I call his name, because he loves me best) but if you want to silently lure him to a room, just put a scrap of paper on the floor. He must MUST sit on all paper. He investigates it with his butt. I haven’t tried the masking tape box yet, where you put tape on the floor in a square or rectangle to see if the cats sit inside it. Maybe I’ll save that for later in the relationship when the cats no longer enthrall him. Just to spice it up, you know!
