Rusty has a new trick. He has discovered how to “politely” ask me to play. When I have been sitting too long at the computer and he has had his nap he comes out to the home office. He has a GREAT BIG stretch, then he looks up at me like this. If I don’t notice he reaches up and puts a paw on my leg. If that doesn’t work he sits a while longer, then puts the paw back up and this time extends his claws. He doesn’t USE the claws, just suggests.
It is best to take this first gentle hint. Best for us both. He is right, breaks are essential to good productivity.
