I'm going on strike!

Hi everybody. I am a little crabby today.

I was very surprised to learn that some of my other furiends actually get NOMS when they do tricks for their humans. Here I am busting out my most impressive jumps and fetching the ball and all that, and in return I'm getting "Good boy" or "That's cute" or "Aww". I told the Mommy about what I've seen on the internet. She tried to convince me that it is better to do tricks not expecting the noms in return, but I'm not falling for that. Until I start getting some treats for my tricks, I'm going on strike!


  1. Well, Henry, we simply cannot understand your humans. We find you quite irresistible!

    The Chans

  2. That's horrible Henry!
    Stand your ground. Maybe give Dateline a call?
    If this doesn't stop.. next thing you know you'll be forced to work for your food!

    What do we want? NOMS!
    When do we want it? Now!

    1, 2, 3, 4 We won't take it anymore!
    5, 6, 7, 8 Come on Mommy, negotiate! … Squirrel!

  3. Henry , we think you should give the people what they want once in a while but not consistantly! Only be consistant when they provide you with treats! :)

    the critters in the cottage xo

    Henry, a lady never discusses her age. But if by cougar you mean a cat with experience, than a cougar I most certainly am not! You have wounded my pure heart by suggesting as much..


    1. Dearest Esme, the most prettiest ladycat I ever knew.

      I hope you will forgive me. I am a boy and sometimes the things I say don't come out right... Like I said about what I read, I has a confused. I has a confused a lot. Because I am a boy. I hope you are not too disappointed in me, Esme.

      Whenever I have gone and said something silly, just remember me singing "Can’t Get Enough of Your Love Babe” to you. Barry White style. Your fave.

  4. You play, they pay. Duh. What is wrong with humans?

  5. Henry, don't forget you should get treats-and-a-half for doing any overtime tricks!

    1. I will keep this in mind for next time... Thanks!

  6. We know you are young, Henry, but it's definitely pay for play. Regularly dispensed treats are to be expected. More treats for special super-duper tricks. We are even able to get treats by giving my woman the "look", with out actually doing anything. Purrs. Taffy

    Oh, that picture of Henry reminds me so much of my darling angel Jet Dragon (green-eyed black). He loved to chase and fetch those atom balls (especially the purple or blue ones). I still sometimes come across one stashed away in one of his hiding places. Laura

    1. Jet Dragon is a very cool name and he sounds pawsome. I like to hide the balls too so that the Mommy just gives me a new one. I have all kinds of hiding places. Pay for play... I like your thinking. I will tell the Mommy that next time.
