Where is your cat fuds? I are a cat, and I are hungry.
I do not think you are really a cat. Votes?
I vote that this damn monkey picks me up and loves me.*
I do not think that is what was meant by voting.
I vote for heat vents for all.
Your heat vent idea intrigues me, could I subscribe to your newsletter.
You don’t want to listen to a thing she says. She steals my fuds.
Can we get back to where your cat fuds are? I want to protect your fud.
*Thanks to Matt, Mandy, and Neil for borrowed cats.
I haz a flavor!
You’re embarrasing all of cat kind!
I bet my flavor is better.
Dammit, guys, you can’t do this and expect respect.
But what if I iz delicious enough to eat? Shouldn’t I want to know?
Just stop it!
Maybe one little taste…
That’s it, I’m out. I am retreating to the egg from which I hatched.
Hang on, eggs are my shtick!
Was only kidding. Surrendering to the flavor explosion instead.
With thanks to Matt, Mandy and Neil for the borrowed cats.

Sorry, got distracted by my ribcage. You were…nevermind. Don’t care.
My existential dilemma is no thumbs and the door’s shut.
