Or do my cats have short term memory issues? :)

Mine certainly do. You tell them they've been fed twice today already and they completely deny it and still want more .....

Tell them No and they will turn around do what they were doing earlier, even if you don't want them to, I've read you have to catch them in the act on their 1st try at misbehavior to stop that behavior or they will ignore you.

This is a solicitation for donations to return sick or injured koalas back to the
wild. Ignore it if you like, or go and donate. I just thought this was a good place
to post the URL.

Yes... I'm beginning to wonder whether my koala's have outstayed their welcome... :) Hello Critter cafe! How is everyone?

$21 bucks per day is a bit steep.

It does seem to be, doesn't it? Of course, they're only asking for a
one-time donation of $21 from you. Too bad you can't choose to
donate less. Or more, for that matter.

So true.

For some reason we have a cat that comes in when I tell her too. She also absolutely loves kitty treats and will come running home when I shake the box. I was calling her once on the doorstop and shaking the box when she appeared at the end of the street at a dead run and all the way home then ran up the steps into the house. A passing lady stopped to watch and said she have never seen anything like it. I keep meaning to film it because it is so funny when she does it.

A giraffe gave a lick to a dying man who asked as a last wish to be taken to Blijdorp Zoo in Rotterdam, Netherlands, where he had done odd jobs for 25 years.

Mario Eijs, who is mentally disabled, had developed a brain tumor and had difficulty walking or speaking. He wanted to pay a final visit to the co-workers and animals he loved.

Oh, PLEASE do!
That would be a treat...no pun intended.
Unless kitty can read as well......

If kitties can read, We are all in big tribble.

Uhh.........
I think they can read.
Lucky for most of us, I don't think they have mastered typing yet.
