or You Can Teach an Old Cat New Tricks

A couple of months ago, I did a post about learning styles using my cats as examples. I discussed how they learned to get kibble out of a cup by using their paw as a tool.   When I say they, I mean that all of them learned how to do it except Lucy. She just couldn't seem to catch on despite years of watching the others.

Well, that all changed this week. Instead of trying to stick her head into the cup for food, Lucy actually put her paw in and drug out a piece.  Hooray! You can teach an old cat new tricks. Or at least an old cat can do something when she decides it's time.
