Every time we sit down to a meal.

Tallulah is a somewhat typical cat. She is playful, friendly, fiesty, lazy, and sometimes, well...I promised I'd get some photos to show you her special...skill?

Cats spend about 16 hours a day sleeping, so there are stretches of time when we don't see Lulie at all. She's snoozing on a sunny windowsill, or perhaps in one of her cozy nests. But if there is the slightest indication that we're going to eat a meal, she sprints to the kitchen, and this is what she does:

I have had cats most of my life, and I've never, ever seen one behave like this. She will perch like that for a minute or two, and if you ignore her, she'll wave her paws or chirp at you, begging for a treat.

You know why she does this, right?

Because it works.

Have you ever seen a kitty more in need of a clown hat and a neck ruffle?

Weird, but awesome! That's hilarious.

Awww, how precious! Our kitty stands on her back legs with her front legs on the cabinets; she then uses one of her paws to 'wave' at me! She will then grunt or meow--depending on how bad she wants my attention!

Cats can be so funny! =^..^=

My mom's cat used to do that whenever he wanted to snuggle. He would also pick up his paws in a "HOLD ME" kind of gesture!! He was the best cat. :)

It really is cute. If I can figure out how to make, and then how to upload a video, I'll do it some time. She chirps, waves her paws...and like I said, it works well, because we end up giving her treats.
