Yesterday we took a lovely drive to Skagway, two hours away, to spend a relaxing afternoon together. Before we left, both Terrors were trying to "help" get us on the road, and they wanted jobs to do. I ran out of jobs a bit to soon for Boy Terror's taste, so I started making stuff up. In desperation, I told him to explain to the kitty where we were going for the day so she wouldn't be lonely.
He flopped down on the floor next to the sunbathing cat, and started. "Meow, meow meow meow. Meow..." He looked up. "Mummy, what's the name of the place we are going again?" "Skagway." "Thanks!" and back to the cat...."Meow-meow, meow meow." He stood up. "I think she understood. She'll be lonely, but that's okay." And off he went to communicate with his more human sister.
