Maxie fighting Cait for bed space
"Mama, how do you learn cat language?"
"What do you mean, Elliot?"
"Well, you always know what Maxie (our cat) wants."
"Well, Elliot, it's like this:
When Maxie sits by the door and meows - she wants out
When Maxie sits outside the door and meows - she wants in
When Maxie sits in the kitchen and meows - she wants food
When Maxie sits in the bathroom and meows - she wants water
When Maxie butts your head when you're in bed and meows - she wants under the blanket
When Maxie rubs round your legs after any of these things and meows - she is saying thank you"
If only human beings were so easy to decipher.
