She just can’t understand it….
That’s how it went for at least an hour this morning. Sushi whining because she didn’t catch the mouse that was poking around, and me (Twilight)- trying to explain to her that in order to catch something, you have to CHASE IT FIRST!
Unfortunately, in Sushi’s mind, chasing mice is ‘disgusting’- and she couldn’t imagine for her life why she should’ve chased it.
“What do you think I am, Twilight? Some sort of ANIMAL? I just wanted to invite it to dinner- I asked it nicely, and it just ran away from me. YOU’RE the one who does the disgusting ‘chasing mice’ thing!”
How do I say this gently?
So I said, “Well, Sushi- IT’S A CAT THING. And guess what? YOU’RE A CAT!”
She just sat there for a few seconds thinking -(which is hard work for her)- then said,
“OH. That explains the tail.”
I give up. This girl just doesn’t know how to cat.
