BUDDY: Hey, I hear you put one over on Jan recently, Taylor. What happened?
TAYLOR: Nothing special. I ran after her first thing the other morning and surprised her when I jumped in her lap and gave her purrs, head bonks and lots of attention. She ate it up.
BUDDY: That's it?
TAYLOR: No, she suddenly put me down and said, "I bet you're just making a fuss because your food dish is empty."
BUDDY: Was it?
TAYLOR: Not even a crumb. I did the same thing the next morning and she did a repeat - put me down and said the dish must be empty.
BUDDY: So she filled it again?
TAYLOR: No, the food dish was full and Percy was snacking before breakfast.
BUDDY: Way to go, kid. Never let the human know what you have up your sleeve.
TAYLOR: But I don't wear sleeves.
BUDDY: It's a figure of speech, kid.
TAYLOR: I've been watching you guys and trying to learn to imitate you. I have to admit it is fun to confuse Jan.
BUDDY: *pats Taylor's head with a paw* Congratulations, kid, you have learned that lesson well.
