Jewel's Journey

One of the many things I loved about Jewel was that she never scratched the furniture!  She really loved her scratching posts.

I credit this to her former owner who "taught" her to use her scratching post from the time she was young.  He would give her a treat every time she used her scratching post, and we all know how much she loved her treats!

By the time I met her, she started training us, as cats tend to do.  Jewel would go and tap her scratching post and expect a treat, and most of the time she ended up getting one.  Then she began to just sit by her post and demand a treat.

So we started to put her treats on top of the post so she'd have to reach up and get them, using the post in the process.  The way she trained us sure was cute, though!


  1. We think it was Jewel who had trained you!!

  2. I never scratch furniture either but I don’t get treats. Hmmmm …

  3. We kitties are very good at training our humans to do what we want them to do!

  4. What a smart (and sweet) girl Jewel was!


    Many investors already know about the hidden secrets involved with options trading, but Binary Options have only been available in the US since 2008. Binary Options have two potential outcomes - high profit or loss of everything. Hence the binary nature of this style of trade.


    It is a good thing to know how to burn belly fat fast because it will allow you to flaunt your amazing bikini body. However, many women choose to forgo the bikini because of the endless list of things they have to endure to get a flat and toned stomach. It needn't be tedious and time consuming anymore as I will give you one weird trick to smash unwanted belly fat.

  7. Our family is all pretty good about scratching and that is because Dad has lots of places for us to sharpen our nails and leave our scent. Jewel really was a smart kitty.

  8. That was very clever of Jewel.:)

  9. Fortunately, this is altering and there are increasingly more Binary Options offshore trading websites, that accept customers that reside in US.
