If your cat is exceptionally insistent when you’re talking on the phone you may have tossed a toy to distract her or perhaps you’ve even refilled the food bowl in an attempt to keep her occupied instead of meowing at you and asking for attention. If that’s the case, your smart cat has also learned just how successful that technique is for her and she’ll do it again and again. Your smart little cat is always learning, so pay attention to the behaviors you reinforce.
