Remembering Athena 15 by SailorEnergy Remembering Athena 15 by SailorEnergy
Now that my cat, Athena has died of old age (June 2018), I decided to draw the funny moments that I was able to remember and share them with you people. :)

All I can say that my cat, Athena, was better trained than my parents' cat. :XD: Artie acted like that whatever the refrigerator is opened or expecting any cat treats. ^^; My cat simply sat there and patiently waits for her treats.

So, how much would it cost to import you to scotland and get you to train all of mum's cats?

Let's see, it'd cost 2000 in US dollars in terms of round-trip airplanes. Or $150 to ship myself couped up in a package. :XD:

The treats is all you need to train them. :) It takes time and patience but it'll get there. :)

I actually read a book about training cats recently. and yeah it pretty much was that. And a note that unlike with dogs you can't punish them because cats won't stand fro that.
I read an interesting, and related, but sad thing: one should be wary of a dog person who doesn't like cats as well, as dogs are very likely to still love people who are downright abusive to them while most cats won't stand for that bullshit, so people who like cats are more likely to be good with animals in general.
Then again my mum has lots of cats and doesn't belive me when I say that garlic is toxic to them :/

Yep. The cats are bit  territorial also. If there are some places you don't want the cats to be, be like a cat and show them "It's my territory!" thing to them. It worked with my cat. For example, I showed her that she's not allowed on the dinner table by being loud with "NO!". It takes a few tries before she learns to avoid going on the table. I did the same with my vehicle whenever she travels with me.

Some people don't like cats because they're allergic to them.

Of course, the dogs are social creatures and they're famed for their loyality. :/ I avoid the dogs mainly because they're too socially demanding.

Ugh, tomatos, graphes, chocolates and onions are toxic to them too. My parents have a cat also and I was firm with them that they can give their cat bits of clean meat (ham or chicken) with nothing added to them.

That does't work with our lot here! Mum does a lot of that.

Yeah that's true.

and I can understand that. I like dogs but I like... other people's dogs.

Yeah. I've tried to tell her all these things but she's just like "You can't believe everything you read on the internet." And she's a heavy believer in the powers of garlic...

yep, and it'd depend on what breed the cats are. Some cats are more wild than  others....

For some reason, Chinese Crested dogs didn't like me. :XD: Husky dogs are way friendier....


It can be difficult especially if your mother's beleifs in garlic happened to be reinforced by lucky occasions (or concidences) as well as hearing from other people who swear by the power of garlic.  It's similar to the "Flat-Earthers" and the conspiracy theorists. :/

yeah...

Interesting!
I tend to find dogs come in two kinds: those who love me fast and those who will bark at me forevermore...

Yee. There was one time we were watching a show on medicine and it showed evidence that stretching before exercise is not as important as people thought it was. Her response? "These scientists. They change their minds all the time." (with the implication that means science is not to be trusted)
Like
yes
We change our minds in the face of sufficient evidence that we were wrong that is how we reach the truth... :icondragonidle:

 How about the third kind which some dogs tend to be quiet or shy?


Heh, a typical implication of not understanding how science really works. :XD:  That's so typical of science that get refined by any new discoveries or information.  The problem with medical science is that we're dealing with people with different genes, hence, different reactions.

  Like for example, cinnamon and ginger taste awful to me. :XD:

Whenever my mom unlocks the laundry room door, Renny will  follow her meowing because he knows he's getting a treat.

I loved these 3 comics of Athena. Vladimir comes rushing when he hears saucers being stacked. Usually saucers means treats!... except when I put them in the dishwasher or take them out XD
