Uh, dad, I’m bored. Find my toy please. NOW!
Cats are cool.
They feign utter indifference to you until they deign to acknowledge you presence. When they want a warm lap to nap on and a scritch behind the ear you are their best friend.
Cats treat us like a 1 am booty call. They want us when they want us but only on their terms.
@de stijl: Our long gone beautiful black Burmese would mostly just ignore us. But always in the same room we were in. Our other cats would meow or rub against our leg when they wanted affection, The Burmese would just walk up and swat us on the shin.
What big teeth you have, grandma.
