Sam is Answering the Phone

If you call us and the phone is busy for a long time, Sam—our Maine Coon Cat—may be on the phone. If you call and whoever answers just makes squeeking noises and pushes the buttons on the phone making an impromptu song from the touch tones, Sam answered.

Yes, Sam has learned to answer the phone. Or, sometimes he just knocks it off on the floor and then lays next to it. We don’t know why he has started doing this, but is is the newest of his long string of funny habits. I think he just likes to lay there and listen to the operator saying (over and again), “If you wish to make a call please hang up and try again.”

  1. Rick wanted me to add that this is NOT a staged photo of Sam and the phone. We found him in this exact same position (with the phone) and I ran for the camera. He is a character for sure! smile We have now hidden the phone under my bed pillow during the day so he can’t use it. I think he is using my SAM’s club phone calling card!
