I have a physical disability and one speed, slow! Since I am responsible for giving Andy his blood pressure medicine twice a day, that disability might make a difference. Except! Yes, except, my kitty boys seem convinced my cane has some magical holding quality. If I point it at them, they tend to stop. If I put it on top of them…! Yes, it is my authority.
As you can see above, “respect” doesn’t necessarily mean I don’t get a “stink eye” from Andy when I catch him with the cane so he can get his midday medicine.
Mom says your sort of like Gandolph the wizard with his staff from ‘The Lord of the Rings.’ Tee hee hee. Maybe Andy and Dougy think the staff has magical powers that will freeze them or turn them to stone. Yikes!
I wish…! At least till I gave them their medicine.
This recalls me a very far past when I was teacher . When I questioned a student I put a long stick to 10 cm above his head and mysteriously the good answer came ! Your cane is pedagogical, Doug: this is a magical stick.
Ha! Ha! Thanks for the insight, Michel! I knew you were an inspector of schools before you retired, but should have realized you started out as a teacher.
It’s known as a wand …
It’s for his health! Of course, that doesn’t make it any better tasting.
Who would have thought canes had a special holding quality for kitties? 🙂
I discovered it with Louie the ginger cat back in 2010.
Boy did you get the big stink eye, wow! 😍😻
Yeah, and Andy is the one named after the Apostle Andrew! LOL!
Maybe I need a cane so I can trim Floki’s nails. I would by a wooded one with a cobra head carved into it. That should work. 🙂
You never know! Perhaps something as simple as a large wooden spoon would have the same magical result…!
