How Do You Make This Thing Work?

black cat with pen on desk
Mr. Sunshine, the engineer cat, tries to figure out how the pen works.

Mr. Sunshine, my engineer cat, picks up my pen and handles it, but can’t figure out how to make it work. I won’t discourage him by telling him it may take opposable thumbs. Mr. Sunshine gets into the messes he does because he’s trying to figure things out and I’m not about to discourage that. And if he figures out how to make the pen work I couldn’t be happier about it!

    It is “working.” His purpose for the pen is different than ours!
