OK, I will just take a felfie with my another cat and uninstall it. Looks like I got all the marriage-related things all wrong :-)

Can you make a batman felfie?

My cat thinks it's a parrot, always on my shoulders, but it can't get it to batman

Our cat is clearly stuck in a  local maxima with her behaviour. Any ideas?

Every time she wants something she's going to sit on a stool and eye my every move, very annoying. She probably correlates sitting on that stool with getting a nice bit of fish she got the first time she did it, but now she thinks that there is a causal relation.

What if you spritz the top of the stool with water -- cat jumps on stool, discovers it's wet, freaks out, and avoids horrible wet stool from then on.

Are you annoyed with her sitting on a stool you want to use? Just take her off.

Or are you annoyed by her watching you? if that's the case then you've got issues that probably require therapy or medication!

I do that all the time. The stool is in the kitchen close to the tap, and if she does that then I go and wash something and "accidentally" spill lots it water around. She'll leave but the next day it's exactly the same.

No I don't want to use it, I'm annoyed by her manipulating me into doing things for her instead of things I want to do myself, while acting as if she's not doing anything special. She just go sit on the stool, look at me all the time and wait, and wait, and wait, until I scream "I can't work like this!!"
