Default "Good Boy"

I have started telling Bonnie she is a "good boy" because that is what I
tell Shadow and Shamrock. She doesn't know she is good girl and not good
boy. lol She responds to it.

I usually tell Otto he's a bad boy. Most of the times, I say it in a nice
voice. So when I start cooing at him: "You're a bad boy! Yes you are!", he
lifts up his front right paw and starts leaning against things. It's his
indication that he's very happy. When he actually does do something bad and
I use my mad voice, he knows he's done wrong. So even though the words are
the same, the voice is different, and he knows.

LOL I do the opposite , I tell Dibby the dog he is a good girl. My
last dog was a girl and all the rest of my pets are girls. As he
doesn't have his full set of meat and veg , I think he counts as an
honoury girl -)

I have special "good" phrases, one for each cat. That way they know
it's "their" special sound. Benjie is a "good boy." Sebbie is a "nice
little guy." Caley is a "sweet girlie."

Wow. Can I have your cat? Wendell just sort of stares at me when I use my mad
voice. He's like, "Can you stop yelling at me so I can get back to what I was
doing?"

LOL sounds like my Boots. He does occasionally respond when I tell him to
get down or tell him "no" but only if he's not really all that interested in
what he was doing anyway.

mumble mumble getting too old to deal with a kitten mumble mumble. lol
