It's Cat - I mean Sat-urday.
"No, you were right the first time."
Well, really there is no day named 'Caturday'; it's Saturday.
"A grievous oversight."
Maybe, but that's just how it is.
"Be that as it may, today is still MY day. And I'm wondering what wonderful things we should say about me today."
I can't think of anything yet. It's been a slow week for you.
"I did Pilates with the ball for a while. Then I wrestled with that intruder, but you took it away."
Yes, well, that was the cord to charge the dog's training collar, so we didn't need it destroyed.
"Huh. Really. I am not fond of that collar. I'm going to tell her it's you who is pressing a button to make her stop chasing me."
Do not tell the dog anything. You tease the dog on purpose, and then she gets all excited and crazy. I need to have her pay attention to me and calm down!
"Why? She is very good at paying attention."
Yes, to you.
"I can help with her lessons."
Don't help. You've done enough already - like batting the ball down the basement stairs so you can play with it down there. You know that drives her nuts!
"She needs to know how to share. I'm teaching her."
That's not teaching her. That is harassing her.
"I suppose next you will say playing with the dog treats you keep on the table is harassing her, too."
Yes, I suppose I will.
"Maybe you should not write about me today. You seem a little out of sorts. I think I should take a nap until you are ready to write something wonderful.
Could you please open the bedroom door?"
"Thanks. Leave it open. I may want to come out."
Of course you will. Would you like the TV on?
"No, I'm fine. Just top off my bowl while you are out in the kitchen. It may be low. I'll be out later to make sure you did."
Saturday-caturday! Might as well tidy his litter box while I'm at it.
