Happy Hump Day everyone...and I hope you're having a good week so far. We had a couple of really warm days but we had some rain last evening so things have cooled off a bit. I hope we have a "Spring" this year....and don't go right into the intense Summer heat all at once....

Cleo has this very annoying habit of constantly licking my tile floors, especially in my kitchen and breakfast nook. But she'll branch out into my family room too at times. I can understand when maybe DH gives her a treat and she wants to lick the crumbs from the floor, but it is much more than that. She actually waits until I am done makin dinner for myself in the evening and then follows me into the kitchen to lick at the floor. I'm not sure how to break her of this habit; I'll usually just tell her to Stop....which she does for a couple of seconds and goes right back to doing the same thing.

Do your furkids having any "OCD-type" habits?

Too cute about cleo, she must have tasted something good there on the floor at one time or other.

As for Coffee. When she starts to eat her dinner, she takes one kibble and places it to the side of her dish. The next kibble goes behind her, the next one goes behind her to the right and then one to the left and the 5th kibble she prances into the living room and drops it in the middle of the room and then goes and eats. Every time, same routine. Always 5 , as if she can count.
