Karen Jo: I am really glad that things are working out between the two of you. Emma is the one who wakes me up early for breakfast now, then she comes back to bed for petting, but never stays very long. Then Herman gets some morning petting and I go back to sleep until time to get up.
I didn't chase Emma around much this morning, but I made up for it after Mom got home. First we ate, with Emma eating up most of the Stinky Goodness, then I chased her all around for a while. It's fun. I guess we are playing THoE, but Emma never chases me back. I got treats for scratching on my scratcher and my platform, but Emma didn't get any. She sees me scratching and getting a treat, then she jumps up on the couch or the armchair and starts scratching. Mom lifted her off the couch and put her on the base of the scratching post and moved her paws in a scratching motion, but Emma never gets it. I think it's funny. It only took me one day to figure out how to get treats for scratching on my platform.
Karen Jo: You were an only cat and knew that the platform was for you from the beginning. Maybe Emma is more distracted from her scratching lessons by your presence, or maybe it's because the places where she is supposed to scratch smell so strongly of you. She has never been on your platform that I have seen. That's why I am going to get her a new scratcher.
