Jovi, my cat, is a very smart feline. Early on he figured out how to turn the water on in the bathtub, REALLY! He doesn’t do it anymore because the force of the water scares him. He can also open the shutters to look outside.
When I feed him his wet food in the morning I tell him to sit, lie down, wait, and when I pet his head he knows he can go eat. He even watches TV with me. It is amazing what ‘cat-ches’ his attention. Jovi likes the ticker tape that scrolls on the bottom of the news in the morning; he swipes at it and gives a knowing look at me as if to say, “I know it isn’t going to move when I hit it, but this is the closest I will get to playing a video game.”
He seems to ‘purr-fer’ the British shows I watch on my computer; The British Baking show and Call the Midwife are among the top picks in his ‘cat-alog’ of choices. I suppose it shouldn’t surprise me, my vet told me that his breed descended from the Celtic region. I forget what she called it but I’ll ask her again and tell you later. I am glad Jovi came in to our family, he is a rescue and he adds a lot to our lives. Being a black cat puts him among the most overlooked choices for adoption, but for us he is ‘Purr-fect’.
