(Mis)communication skills: feline edition

Academic cat companion in a more helpful mode.
What the cat said: Mwrrr.
What I understood:  Please let me in, it's cold outside.
What the cat actually meant:  I have a bird to play with, may I bring it in?
What I said:  Fluffy, no, no!  (inarticulate shrieking)

This is not what the doctor ordered when it came to vocal rest.

The bird is gone, the cat is annoyed with me, I may now return to my regularly scheduled lunch.


  1. She looks a bit put out.

    1. She is still glaring at me. Me, I was not amused by having to clean up the feathers in my sunroom.

  2. I can't believe how much she looks like a fluffy Glinda! Or Glinda looks like a mini-Fluffy!

  3. I think they are related!

  4. I hope your throat is healing quickly. I must add that I get my cat fix from pictures of Fluffy and Glinda but they don't help my resolve to resist adding a cat to my home.

  5. It's good to know that blogging about my cat is a good thing, Lynda! :)
