|Yes, it's me, Carlton The Special One|
For the duration of the A to Z Challenge, Carlton Cat will be taking over this blog.
He's a little bit of a maverick moggie with strong views.
Emotional BlackmailTHIS is a vital skill in my feline armoury. Thanks to my ability to look cute or sad on demand, I can pretty much get my own way about everything. Here is a little lesson for other cats who haven't quite mastered the art of emotional blackmail.
Let me show you:

Of course, rub me for a nano second too long and I will sink my teeth into your hand and my claws into your arm.

You may have eaten a bowl of food a short while ago, but after an exhausting hour of bird-watching, chasing some idiot interloper cat from the garden and batting a ball of paper across the floor, you are now STARVING. You go and sit by the bowl as Mr and Mrs sit at the kitchen table. One of them may say: "He can't be hungry; he had two sachets of meaty chunks and a handful of crispy crunchies at 10 o'clock." So you have to employ some emotional blackmail. Jump up on the chair, rest your chin on the table and start to drool. Works every time.

So, my feline friends, that's how it's done. You're welcome.
The Mrs has another blog here.
