I try to show my human how to do nothing when she forgets, which is way too often. I do it like this: I walk into whichever room she is in, say the room where she keeps her computer, and I flop down by her feet and stretch my legs out, open my mouth and yawn, and close my eyes. Sometimes I will give a little moan or sigh. If this does not work, I will put my head on her lap and gaze into her face while thinking loving thoughts about how cute she is when she is doing nothing.
If this doesn’t work, I give up and go into another room by myself, say the room with the couch in it, and stretch out on the couch after turning around a couple times and rubbing my smell all over it so it makes a soft nest. I rest my head on the throw pillow and wait for her to come into this room and see me, and join me on the couch with a throw pillow of her own.
I keep hoping she will learn how to do nothing, but so far it does not seem to be working.
