What Are They Trying to Tell Us?

Have I mentioned that Pluto and Saturn are fiendishly affectionate? It's true. If there's a lap, they want on it. If I'm petting them with one hand, they nuzzle the other
one, too. Usually they’re really open about want they want and how they want it.
Sometimes, though, their bids for my attention aren't so adorable. Like when Pluto tries to eat the houseplants over and over.
He knows I’m going to tell him "no", so why does he bother?
Apparently he does it because I'll say " no". Or rather, because he knows I'll start paying attention to him. In fact, the Humane Society
says that most of a cat's behavior (or misbehavior) is an attempt to communicate with her owner.
Knowing that, I've started to view Pluto's plant-eating differently. And go figure, he only does it when his
food bowl is empty.
How does your kitty view for your attention?
