Re: OT:weather, cats


Kitty, I have never been sure how to train my cats to use a pole or sisal
etc.  I have a carpeted scratching pole, which my male cat loved from the
moment I brought it into the house (has torn to pieces) but my female cat
won't touch.  She prefers the furniture, though she knows I don't like her
to use it and she's better than when she was a kitten.
