No, if she wants to do something she can do on her own without my help or participation, "no" is ineffective.

Sounds as if she is understanding "No" as her wanting something and you refusing.  Does your 'No' have any effect on her own behaviour - if she jumps up where you don't want her to jump?

For example, she will bring a toy while I'm working, drop it, and look up at me. She's asking me to play. If I'm in the middle of something and I say "no," she will look sad and either lay down on the spot or go away and do something else.

For example?

Sorry if I misled you. She understands "no" in a general way, not just related to food.

No! is a sound of disapproval.  Dogs crave approval so it works on them.  Cats rarely care so it doesn't do the same trick.  The added element here ,is she is hearing that you wont share 'your' food.  Food 'pecking order' is fundamental to animals in the wild, so your refusal to share is understood.

Just like a child, Squeaky has learned the meaning of "no." When she's begging for a treat, if I say "no," she will glumly walk away and sulk. Is this something all cats eventually learn (the meaning of "no") or is she a kitty cat genius?
