Cats Need Not Apply – Conversations with Stella and Doodlebug

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Ew! Doodlebug! MoonCat is drinking out of your water bowl!
Doodlebug:  Yeah, she does that sometimes.

Me:  MoonCat, your water bowl is where it always is. What’s going on?
MoonCat:  Bulldog water tastes better.
Me:  And this doesn’t bother you, Doodlebug?
Doodlebug:  Nope. Plenty for all.
Stella:  Well, it bothers me! It is unseemly and…well…well…unbulldoggy.
Doodlebug: MoonCat is a bulldog now.
Stella:  Noooo! Not possible. Cats can’t be bulldogs. Period!
Doodlebug:  She asked to join our pack and I said yes.
Stella:  Cats can’t just apply and become bulldogs. Bulldogs are special. Bulldogs are different.
Doodlebug:  But she has a little mouth and tongue and doesn’t drink much, and we eat her food if it falls on the ground, so what’s the problem?
Stella:  That’s different. Bulldogs are vacuums. We make the world a cleaner place.
Doodlebug:  But she lets me drink from her water bowl.
Stella:  Well, there’s no accounting for taste.
