I am Stella, Queen of the Old English Bulldogges. She’s doing it again, Lady Human! Why, oh why? Make it stop!
Me: What is going on in here?
MoonCat: Meow! Hello! Welcome to playtime!
Me: No, it is not. We are trying to sleep.
Doodlebug: But that doesn’t work during playtime, does it? MoonCat told me to call you.
MoonCat: Yes, because my voice is not loud enough.
Me: That’s debatable. You cannot keep waking up the household in the middle of the night.
Doodlebug: I can.
Me: I mean you shouldn’t. Why are you doing what a cat tells you to do anyway?
Doodlebug: When you put it like that, I don’t know.
Me: MoonCat has trained you to call me in the dark of night when neither one of you need anything.
MoonCat: Meow. Excuse me, but I do need an extra tasty snack and my food bowl is only half full. Sleep can wait.
