Sammy’s big on eye contact. When he speaks to you, he likes to look you square in the peepers. And if he thinks your attention is wandering in any way, he’ll get in your face. If push comes to shove, he’ll flop on his side or roll over on his back or something to make sure you have to work a bit to maintain that contact.

Oh … and you’d better not blink when he’s talking to you.

If your pets have any peculiar speaking habits, please tell us about them in the Comment box below.
