“Artemis, you’ll have to move in a minute, You are lying on an old piece of towel which I need for something else”.
“No, I am a goddess and this is my day bed, I am lying here.”
“But you’ve been lying there for three hours. Wouldn’t you like a bit of exercise, maybe a stretch and a bite to eat?”
“I repeat – I need my rest. I have a lot of prowling to do later tonight.”
“Look – I’ll swap that bit of old towel for one of my best comfy cushions with Greek embroidery on…”
“I’ll think about it….. dont rush me. It took me ages to get settled and now you want me to move. That’s not a very nice way to treat your cat goddess, is it?”
“And also you are blocking the locker door where your boat daddy keeps his tools, he needs something in a minute….”
“‘Why are you treating me so badly? I’ll report you to the animal cruelty society…..”
Yawns lazily and changes position.
“Come on, let me lift you onto this cushion……..”
Loud screech and claws extended – “Don’t touch me, I’ve spend hours cleaning my gorgeous white fur…..”
“How about some early dinner? You can have chicken pate or seafood chunks.”
“What about some of that gourmet stuff they advertise on TV? How about you feed it to me by hand in small pieces then I won’t have to get off this cushion?”
Male boat human arrives, opens locker door, sending the furry feline flying. Cat slopes off and settles down on top of the female’s best fleecy top…….
