Chats du jour: Finally earning their keep

SH [as he is blocking Shirley with his foot and she, undeterred, is hopping over it]: No! Shirley! Stop!

Me: What's she doing?

SH: She's trying to catch this centipede.*

Me: So? Let her catch it.

SH: She might eat it!

Me: So?

SH: WHAT IF IT'S POISONOUS?

Me: Cats have been eating bugs for a long time.

SH: We have to do the research on this.



* I did not know we had bugs in this house, although Shirley spends a lot of time staring at the basement carpet, which got soaked in June, thus creating a moist environment perfect for the raising of vermin.
