Conversation with a cat, pt 2

Nat: I'm having people over in a couple of days, Lucy. I want you to be on your best behaviour, okay?

Lucy: People? Yay! I love people! I'm going to tell them all about how you torture me so they'll feel sorry for me and pet me and pay attention to me.

Nat: Don't bother. I've already warned them that you lie.

Lucy: I'm going to tell them about the beatings!

Nat: They won't believe it. They know I adore you.

Lucy: I'll tell them you send me to the dungeon when you leave.

Nat: Lucy, they know I live in an apartment.

Lucy: Well then I'll tell them how you lock me up while you're away.

Nat: If, by "lock you up" you mean "let you have free reign of the entire apartment except my bedroom," then sure - tell them.

Lucy: What about the water torture? You can't deny THAT actually happened!

Nat: I'll let them know it was because you decided to climb up the chimney and got yourself covered in soot. I think they'll be on my side.

Lucy: Um...what if I just purr and tilt my head a bit. Do you think they'll pet me then?

Nat: Oh definitely.

On the inside, looking out


  1. Awww, she's adorable - I'd definitely be petting and fawning over her if I visited. And then my cats would be jealous when I came home and they smelled her scent on me. LOL.

  2. You are being featured on Five Star Friday:

  3. Thanks, whoever submitted me for FSF! Y'all are swell.

    PS: Lucy behaved herself during the party and her lies were minimal. In fact, everyone was threatening to take her home with them.

  4. Cats, eh? Cats. Those darn cats. AGF's cats have started to redecorate when they're at my place, by tearing down shreds of wallpaper from my computer room. Oh well, I wanted to redecorate that one anyway.

  5. I was visiting a friend and observed her cat sitting on the floor a few feet away ignoring us and staring blankly at the wall her eyes not really focused on anything. "What do you think she is thinking I ask my friend"---she kinda smiled, shrugged, "Kitty kat things no doubt."

  6. It's hard to think deep thoughts when your brain is the size of a pea.

  7. Oh yeah. I'd be petting all over that critter. I'm a sucker for a head tilt and a bit of a purr.
