|Emmy pounding on the patio door|
peculiar, if not downright
eccentric behaviors that can
border on total weirdness at
times. Emerald's habit of getting
up on her hind legs and furiously
pawing at the window when she
wants to go outside or come in;
or her way of sneaking and
snatching treats from the other
cats by cautiously stretching out
her paw on the piece she wants
and pulling it to herself.

|Molly & Emmy, partners in crime|
On occasion I've caught Molly stealing treats the same way and she never used to. Both Molly and Emmy have a taste for a pat of butter every now and again at lunchtime; they also like raw/cooked bacon, pork chops and cheese.
Cats do learn from watching each other, a few years ago when we lived in our trailer, Molly taught Sassy how to tear through the window screen to get outside. The two of them plotted together and accomplished the same thing when we moved to the island. So much for keeping them as indoor cats! Lately Emerald has been deciding for herself when she wants her treats and the other three pick up on that; all head for the kitchen and wait expectantly for me to follow. I could literally teach Emmy to dance for her treat if I put enough work into it!

Sassy likes to be rambunctious with her daughter, Emerald.
