I planned to have Toshio, my trained cat, pick the name out of a hat, but I didn't have time to train him properly for this trick. However, I did enlist the help of my husband to film Toshio doing one of his training sessions.
Yes, he is a trained cat!
Toshio is a British Bombay rescue. He is almost three now or so we think. We adopted him from Texas Cares in March of 2009. You can read his story here.
And here's Toshio! (Please excuse the pajamas, people. It's early Sunday morning and I was out past midnight at Thrillvania theme park, touring haunted house attractions in the pouring rain. There will be a blog about this tomorrow.)
