I said these words to our two feline residents and they were puzzled.
“What’s a pet?” asked Benji.
“Um, well,” I replied, a bit startled by the look in his eyes. “According to the dictionary it’s a tamed animal kept for companionship.”
“Tamed?” questioned Benji.
“Kept?’ asked Tiger.
“Are you planning to curtail our freedoms? You know how much we like the outdoors. At least when it’s not raining.”
“No of course not you two. You’re way too sensitive. Sorry I mentioned it at all!”
