Bezukhov’s addendum

Last year, Bezukhov wrote an informative post on “How to Avoid Taking Your Medicine” (click here to read it).  This is an addendum to that post.  Apparently, another key method has come to light & Bezukhov wants it documented.  Here is what he has to say:


 

Hello millions of followers & fans.  It’z Bezukhov here.

I hope you all found my post on how to avoid taking your medicine helpful.  The first & most important method of avoidance dat I wrote about was to ‘Stay Free And Avoid Kapture‘.  As my human usually traps me in the Manor, my area of ‘staying free’ iz very limited.  Kapture iz, I am most annoyed to say, inevitable.

However, there is another technique dat kan be deployed to seriously undermind the authority of the human: ‘Feet Clamp‘.  This iz where you stay still but firmly clamp your feet around the perch.  It sounds too simple to be effective, but effective it iz.  The human kannot move you away or pick you up.  They kan try to pull you up off the perch but stay strong, & you will go nowhere.

Your human may den have to use their other hand to prise your toes from the perch.  Remember to do The Clamp on the highest perch so your human has to do all this on tiptoe.  S/he will give up soon enough.

I think this technique iz a worthy addition to my original post.  I just had to share.

Whilst I am in a sharing & confiding mood & I have your attention, I would like to give public thankz to my best buddy Cagney.  In the last week or so, he has got increasingly displeased at the way our human harrasses me every 48 hours & has rebelled.  The times when Mama has her hands around me, but kan’t move away as I am clamped to the perch (see above), an impetuous Cagney leans across from his perch & viciously attacks ¹ her hand to get her to let me go.  I am very grateful for his support at such a time.  Thankz Caggers!

I also grudgingly give thankz to Mama for allowing me this platform to express my thoughts & opinions.

Wishing you all plentiful seed.

Over and out. x
