I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. This is an urgent alert! Ring the alarm bells! All eyes open! There is a cat in the house!
Me: Of course, there is a cat in the house. Our cat, Moon, is in the house.
Stella: No, this is a different cat! Everybody, be on the lookout!
Me: Stella, I guarantee that there is no strange cat in the house. I took Moon to the vet. She’s a little tired, that’s all.
Stella: Nope, Moon never leaves the house.
Me: She does when she goes to the vet.
Stella: And Moon prisses around all over, flaunting her cattiness in our faces. This strange cat seems sweet and quiet. Not like a scratcher at all.
Me: She got a vaccination. She doesn’t like her cat carrier or riding in the car. She complained to me the whole way there and the whole way back.
Stella: That shows how dumb cats are. Who in their right mind doesn’t like riding in a car? That doesn’t sound like our Moon. She is too smart to disdain a car ride.
Me: Let her have a good nap and she will be back to her usual self.
Stella: There she is! Charge! Ouch! Hey, it is Moon!
Me: I guess she didn’t need that nap after all.
