I have a little helper!

April 23, 2017

My beautiful girl Smonks (a.k.a. Monkey or Punky Monkey) is a Mackerel tabby cat.  She is now 8 years old and we had her as a little 8 week old kitten.  She was named "Monkey" due to the way she clung onto me as a kitten, not wanting to let go.  She is a house cat and I have clicker trained her to do 11  tricks. She does these tricks promptly and enthusiastically for a click and a treat. She does, sit,  down, turn around, touch, go to target, scratch, jumps up, lifts paw, fetches, rings her servant's bell and comes and gets her laser light for a chasing game.  She's far too clever for her own good.  Apart from her tricks on command, she also loves  doing "suicide leaps" from the top of the wardrobe onto our bed during the night! During the day she can often be found underneath the duvet covers. When she isn't doing that she loves to help me do my felting, by conditioning the wool and mixing the colours together. She made a cloud one day, then fell asleep on it.  Be sure to check out the middle photo, a Smonks selfie!
