Nature or Nurture?

Jack and Jilly have done it again. Remember this picture?

That's Jack on the left and Jilly on the right. They're siblings, born here after their mama showed up pregnant and just a few weeks away from delivering. Once in awhile, we feed them Special Kitty moist cat food in the pouch, as a treat. The other cats have been offered the same treat, but they give the impression that they can take it or leave it. Not so with Jack and Jilly. They looooooooooooooooove it. It doesn't matter where they are in the house - they could be sound asleep in a closet upstairs in a bedroom - the second they hear me shaking the pouch down before opening it, they are Johnny-on-the-spot.

They're pretty mannerly, not like
these cats on YouTube. Jack and Jilly share until its all gone and walk away. I just fed them their treat a little bit ago, and if the crossed tails in the photo above wasn't cute enough, look at this one:

Do you suppose this tail synchronization thing is genetic?

Ahhhhhhhhhhh. They're just too cute. The catchildren will share treats to a point--but only to a point.

How sweet they are. I think your loving eyes have captured them in a natural reaction to a tasty treat.

Ha! In my second grade classroom, we studied a word-of-the-week. One word was "simultaneous." That would work here! ;-) Cute photos. (It was a requirement that when a child brought a definition of the word, they also had to create a model, draw or find a picture to illustrate the word. You did it here!)

Hi Kylee,I love the Double trouble Cat Photo.They must be attuned to the puches being shook.

Once again they prove that they are real Russian Blues at heart. All my Ruskies eat very mannerly. My little Delia has the most exquisite manners and she and Merlin do the tail thingy too at times. Lots of purrrrrrrrrrs from the Bliss team for Jilly and Jack!
