Mother, see how clever I am? By sitting in the doorway to your bedroom, I am preventing the interloper from coming in, as he now knows not to cross my barrier. It means I win control of the bedroom.
… Mother, why have you picked him up and carried him through the door? You have subverted my security measure! Do not blame me if he disturbs you as you sleep!
And if I join you in bed I may have to growl at him.
Oh, you are showing me the small black hole to hide in? That is strange, mother, but I haven’t been inside it in some time. What is it like?
Mother, what is that sound? Mother, why am I now trapped in here? … mother why are we going into the wheeled conveyance
MOTHER I DO NOT LIKE THIS WHERE ARE WE GOING NO I DO NOT LIKE DO NOT LIKE DO NOT LIKE
mother i am feeling far too sick to play or to be touched or to be bothered by the other cat and i cannot even stand to wear the collar with the bell as it is far too overwhelming
mother please do not touch me, allow me to die in peace as i languish in the comfort of the bed
oh but could you let me outside
Mother, one month ago you took me in the car to take me to the vet and I was Quite Unhappy. Then one week ago you took me in the car again to take me to the vet and I was again Quite Unhappy, and you absolutely PROMISED that I would not have to go in the car to the vet for about two years.
So tell me, mother, WHY AM I IN THE CAR. AGAIN.
Mother! The other cat is on the table now!
I am so proud!!!!
