This time, she saves the day.
While I was giving my mother her prescriptions this morning, she dropped a vital, and rather expensive, pill. It rolled away on the floor, seeming to vanish without a trace.
Half joking, I asked Arianwen to find the pill for me.
She had been sat relaxing against the wall, observing with mild amusement. She looked at me, gave me blinkies, and got up, looking in the general area where I had been searching for the pill. Sniffing in the air and along the floor, she suddenly pointed, in cat fashion, at a spot on the floor. Then, she looked back up at me, and emphatically pointed again.
I looked again on the floor at the spot where she pointed, and she had found the pill for me! Her emphatic pointing must've been her way of saying, "It's here, dummy, plain as day!".
Of course, I rewarded her with treats, lots of praise, and extra lovin'.
Ah, my sweet, helpful little genius-kitty
