Fake Jumping. Real Guilty.

Dear Frank: Finally someone who speaks my language. I'll admit it! I fake that I can't jump up on my Mom's lap. Just so she will pick me up - extra snuggle time you know. I see that she has to set aside her computer, put down her coffee, take her feet off the footstool. But, I can't seem to help myself? How can I get past my guilt??
Love, Lucy in Florida

Dear Lucy: I see nothing to feel guilty about here. This gives your human exercise. They should thank you. Keep on keepin' on.
