Cat talk

When I went into my bedroom last night, With-a-Why was sprawled on the bed with Rachel, our orange cat. He seemed to be having a serious conversation with her.

“The C stands for specific heat. It’s mass multiplied by the specific heat multipled by the change in temperature,” he said, stroking her head as he spoke.

He looked up as I approached. The cat stretched out and rubbed her head against his arm.

“People always talk to cats as if they’re stupid,” he explained. “No wonder they don’t learn much. I’m attempting to do the opposite.”

If my cat learned physics he'd just use it to build a bomb or something. He's enough of an evil genius as it is!

That's so adorable I almost can't stand it.

I thought this sort of thing only happened at my house ....

That seems perfectly logical to me, but I suspect that my cat, at least, would not demonstrate her learning if she had the least idea that humans would like it...

1) I love it.
2) It's such a joy to read about the neat people in your family. Seriously. It's hope-giving.

My D talks to Moby all the time, Moby listens.

This story sounded good to him.
