Day 139: Subtle Hints

When you have feathers, you are naturally very observant.

Unfortunately, you can’t always say the same for your large featherless caretaker.

But you can help her by issuing “subtle hints” so she can rearrange her priorities back to their proper order.

For example, let’s say you would like to climb up your ladder….if only your ladder was to be set up for climbing.

You notice that she is sitting right across from you, totally focused on that glowing rectangular thing again.

So first, you can position yourself for maximum visual impact.

Here I am - directly in her line of sight. She can't miss seeing me.
Here I am – directly in her line of sight and sitting right ON my ladder. She can’t miss seeing me.

Next, you can begin issuing subtle hints.

The more disapproving you can look, the faster she will "get" what is missing in this picture.

Once you have her attention, it is time for that tried-and-true attention-grabber, “cuteness.”

Deploying "cuteness" now.

This should work to achieve the desired outcome.

All those subtle hints paid off - just like I knew they would!
