The Manipulator

Motor has got me so figured out. For years now, whenever I would hear Motor cry a certain distress cry, I would know Tiger and Motor were "fighting," and 9 times out of 10, Tiger would have Motor held down, biteing his back.

Now...Motor will sit in another room, and cry like he is being hurt, because he knows I will come running to break them up and help Motor. Then Tiger gets reprimanded, and Motor gets coddled.

I really can't believe he is doing this. As soon as I get to where he is crying and I see he is by himself, he will use his small "kitten" meow on me, and that always gets him loads of attention.

Do I feel like I am being manipulated? You bet I do. I am just so amazed at this new behavior. This is Motor, my sweet boy. If I thought one of the two of them would figure out this behavior, I would have to guess Tiger.  But Tiger is just quietly sitting by us while Motor is crying away for me to come over and give him attention.


Oh Motor, my smart little manipulator.  How I love thee.

They learn quickly! Angel will growl and hiss and Kirby gets in trouble and goes in time our. He has started picking which room he wants to be in when I holler at him !
