Sitting nicely and making beautiful eyes do not work on my mom anymore. She could just go on eating and ignore me. So I had to think of other ways to get what I want – whatever she is eating.
I had tried sitting on different sides of her. I tried to sit closer and closer to the table to make sure she can see me. Didn’t work. Finally I discovered that lifting my left paw and briefly letting it rest on her thigh would do it. She would laugh and give me something. After a while she ignored that too. I then did multiple times, almost like knocking. She laughed and relented again. When that got old, I tried to just hold on to her thigh until she gave in.
Life Lesson: Moms are easy… you just have to know how.
