    I can't believe a cat would submit to clicker training. That's some powerful indoctrination right there.

    But I'm glad you and TanglyBellyCat came to terms on that issue.

    Improvement programs…… for Cats

    I have the "farmer's mentality" when it comes to animals: Every 4-legged on the place should have a job. And I also confuse livestock with cats.

    So I'll insist that every cat in my circle of...
