So I’m housesitting this month for Choon & PS.Just took them to the airport today. I can’t believe they brought a 4″ memory foam topper as baggage. It’s for PS’ sister in Singapore, but they are making a stopover in Taiwan first.

Of course, this means that I am taking care of their two cats, Toro and Winston (pictured). I have my set of rules about how to feed them. Winston has to sit first before he gets his food, and he gets a little less than toro since he’s a smaller cat. That went fine. But for Toro, not only is he supposed to sit, but he’s supposed to kiss me too before he gets any food. Sufficed to say, I have no idea how this is accomplished since I never actually saw Pei-Sun feed them. Is he supposed to kiss me before sitting? On the cheek? What really counts as a kiss? I tried twice anyways, and Toro’s going hungry tonight. He’s looking kinda miffed at the moment, glowering at me from the corner of the room…

  1. Okay, first of all cats are not like dogs in that they usually don’t “sit” and then get a treat or get fed. You just feed them. However, they are like dogs in that they will lick their butts so I don’t know if I’d be too keen on getting that kiss.

  2. Heh. Hey. I don’t make the rules up. This is what Pei-Sun tells me to do. Ha.

    A cat would be awesome for Vince. Tho I do see him as more of a dog kinda guy.

  3. Donald, the kiss from Toro is just simply the mouth gets close to your fore head and touches you. I was surprised too that it is possible to train the cats to sit. But now they do!
