I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. I am a stable, settled creature. When it is bedtime, it is bedtime, not meowing time or wandering around the house time.
Doodlebug: Are you referring to me?
Stella: Among others. You know who you are. MoonCat.
MoonCat: Meow. I don’t wander. I meander. There is a huge difference.
Me: Okay. Explain.
MoonCat: Wandering around the house is what a human or a dog might do. Meandering is much more elegant. It is the purview of cats. Get it. Purr-view of cats.
Me: I get it. I just don’t understand why Doodle has started joining in at night. It’s highly disruptive to our sleep patterns.
MoonCat: Nonsense, Lady Human. I sleep anytime, anywhere. I am completely well-rested. So you have nothing to worry about. Good night for now.
