Smothered with Affection

Josie: I don’t think you should lie across the human’s head like that while he’s sleeping, ‘your highness’.

Cammie: He wasn’t sleeping when I lie down on him. And I don’t like the sarcasm used when you addressed me with my title.

Josie: Well, he’s sleeping now, ‘your highness’.

Renn: Are you sure he’s sleeping?

Tucker: Aye fink he may bee ded. Iz he ded?

Cammie: He’s not dead, you child. He’s unconscious, not dead.

Parker: I don’t hear him breathing. I think you smothered him.

Cammie: You’re down on the floor, you orange lump. You can’t tell anything from there. He is not dead. He is merely sleeping the sleep of the exhausted, having worked and slaved all day and half the previous night, feeding us, playing with us, cleaning up after us, and giving us the sort of life he believes we should have as poor, defenceless, innocent cats.

All: Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Cammie: You see, I can condescend to amuse you peasants. Hmm, I think he may have stopped breathing, after all. I have to use the litter-box, anyway…

Raleigh: I hope he’s not dead. I like his lap…


  1. Haha I can just imagine them all talking like that.

  2. John, I swear to God, you’re the best writer in the blogosphere.

    1. Thank you. There is plenty of writing to admire on the Blogosphere, so your words are flattering indeed.

  3. LOL! *Applause* Well done, well written! There could be a screen play in this, even for a "short". :-)

  4. And it sounds just LIKE them. Any Cat Family out there!

  5. Hahaha! This was great! I'm sure my crowd thinks the same way. I did love reading little Raleigh's voice. So sweet.

  6. I concur with Poppy Q - you've captured their voices so well!

  7. Oh yes, I can imagine that conversation so well! Cammie, condescending towards the others, and poor Raleigh afraid he might lose his lap.

  8. Hahaha we can well imagine this conversation too!

  9. Haha! I think you should start your writing career :D
