This happened today, I went down to play and saw a black and grey cat. She was sitting on a white wall. I went close to her and sat on the wall next to her.

The cat narrowed her eyes and twitched her nose and let out a loud “meow.” It sounded like, “Get out of here, I need to sleep.”

I tilted my head and softened my voice and said, “meow.” I meant to say, “But I am only sitting here, I won’t trouble you.” She calmed down and said, “Meooooo…w.” I am pretty sure she said, “I am sorry for being rude to you.”

I let the cat sleep and came home. I opened the door slowly and sneaked in and said, “meooo…w.” My mom thought it was a real cat and got frightened. I think I should continue talking to cats!
