Subject: RE: BS: If [pets] Had Opposable Thumbs
Back in the day...(days of four felinities instead of two)...

In order to be let in the house:

Marmalade would sit on the shelf outside the kitchen window and silently go "eh" (his version of the silent meow) and think really hard, "Let me in, let me in" -- and we'd let him in.

Calliope would get into the same place, rear on her hind legs and scratch on the window. We'd let her in.

Foolish would sit in the middle of the driveway and make a noise like he was being torn to shreds by dogs...and we'd let him in.

Peppersass, however, had made the connection between the doorknob and the door's ability to open and close. But, alas, he didn't have opposable thumbs. So he hang from the doorknob and swing back and forth and make such a row we'd let him in.
