Homer's Got Something to Tell You

Homer is very vocal about expressing his needs. If the kibble dish is empty, you'll know it. He'll do the sad meow and lead you into the pantry where he will politely open the cupboard door where the kibble is stored.

If the litter box is messy, he will meow outside the bathroom door.

Feeding time?  No worries.  Homer will remind you.

But the other night, the meowing was pitiful. What could be wrong?  I went through the usual routines, but nothing satisfied him. I finally went into the room he'd came from, turned on the light, and searched for anything that might be bugging him. Like a bug or critter. Nothing. 

I left the light on and left the room. Silence. That was it. He just wanted the light on.

Gwen is like this when she wants to go outside. She'll come over and rub up against you, then once she's got your attention she'll walk to the door. If you don't come open it, she'll do the whole thing over again :-)

You have to admire a cat able to communicate so well with its humans!

Homer is a bright kitty! ;)

Cleopatra often tries to herd me to her favorite chair so she can sit on my lap.
