It’s Monday! That means time for another question answered by moi, Abbey (see pic above, I think my mom captured my smart side)
Today’s question comes to us from Maggie and her human Diane Capri. Diane is a best selling author with a license to thrill! (That must look pretty snazzy on your collar, Miss Diane!)
“Dear Abbey, I hesitate to write to you because the object of my question is a pesky Yorkie named Abby. She’s coming to visit soon and she’ll stay six weeks. During that time, she wants to play with my toys and sleep in my bed and mostly, take all the attention. How can I get rid of her?”
Abbey (moi) says: Hmmm. I’m not sure what weeks are but that sounds like a long time to have to share your toys, bed and human! Woof! I think you’re going to have to pull out all the stops. (You don’t know how to operate one of those car things do you? I once knew a dog who went “for a ride” and never came back!) No? Okay then.
I see that you’re holding up your paw. This is actually a very good trick to use to get your human’s attention. When you walk around, hold up that paw and look at your human with very sad eyes and if you can–throw in little whimpers. She’ll be sayin’ “Abby who?” in no time! (She does have a cool name, though. Maybe she’s not so bad if you give her a chance.)
If that doesn’t work…I know a cat who may be able to help you!
What about you? Have you had house guests that brought pets along? Share your tails..er…tales with us!
