Tortie Tuesday

This week's Tortie Tuesday lesson is how to do the cute face.

Last week I showed all you Torties and non-torties how to be scary and intimidating. As Torties are aware, the scary face works very well in most circumstances but the often over-looked cute face can be just as effective to get your way. It is recommended to balance out the cute and intimidating faces so that your victim doesn't know what to expect. One important thing to remember about the cute face is to only use these moves on humans. If you use it on prey or your pesky brother, the hunter will quickly become the hunted because they'll think you're weak and submissive.

Here is a great one for when you want a treat. Squish your face up against something inanimate and make sure your pupils are wide and dilated to give you a soft, cute appearance.



Pretend you're asleep with your nose against something. (I have no idea why this one works but it does!)



This cute face is commonly known as the 'I'm sideways and sleepy but reaching out cutely to touch you' face. It requires a bit of practice but don't be discouraged! You can do it too!



This is the 'Look into your eyes and hypnotize you with my cuteness' look.



A combination of upside down, fluffy tummy and cute face will send them running for the treat cupboard! You'll get almost anything you want with this move.



The last example for today is the 'Classic Cute' face. Make sure you're looking up at them to appear helpless (ha!), small and in awe of them and say with your eyes 'Oh big and strong human in my life, please give me a treat as fast as possible'. It's a guaranteed move that will touch even the stingiest of humans.



Enjoy your treats!

Congratulations to Tortie-extraordinaire, Tasha for winning the prize for Romeo's contest! I think it's perfect timing to win it on your Mom's birthday and just in time for Tortie Tuesday!

Delilah, you has it all figured out! I think the "eyes" have it -- you certainly have very large and expurresive ones. You are irrestible. But all those other tricks are good to know, too! You has "cute" all sewed up.
