The Good Kitty
Percy: Hey, remember me? I'm the good kitty.
Buddy: You are not! You're a sometimes good kitty.
Percy: I am always a good kitty! Okay, stop glaring. I'm a sometimes good kitty.
Buddy: That's more like it. Jan says we are always to tell the truth. Except, of course, when we don't.
Percy: If we don't always tell the truth, why did I just have to admit I was fibbing?
Buddy: Because I heard you.
Percy: I heard you telling Marcus you didn't know where his outside blue ball was, but I saw you hide it behind the dog house.
Buddy: Ah, but I was playing a prank on Marcus, not fibbing. There's a difference.
Percy: I wonder how Marcus will feel about that when I tell him who hid his ball.
Buddy: Percy, come back here! I'll let you think you're the good kitty if you don't tattle to Marcus.
Percy: You will? So, who's the good kitty around here?
Buddy: You are, Percy.
Percy: Why, thank you, Buddy. It's so kind of you to say so. I didn't realize you feel that way.
Buddy: *under his breath* I didn't either.
