Thank you Poppy! I never had a cat allowed on my table till Heidi. But, I always had kittens and I trained them not to. Heidi was a 3 yr old rescue and did what she wanted. You have to really love cats to allow them on your kitchen table. She does know she is not allowed on the table at meals. She tried that twice! How funny, she learned that, but would never obey about when it was empty. I don't care. I love her and she can go where ever she wants! She's my baby!
