I think the gray makes me look distinguished.

I think it makes you look like a doofus.

I think the monkey should never stop petting me.

I’m on the doofus train.

You might want to keep that on the down low.

Wait, I think I’ve just been insultipated!

You don’t say…

I’m bored. Bored. Bored. Bored…

Dude, trying to sleep here. So, shut it.

What he said, but with extreme prejudice.

The same, with extra flounce, because I am exceptionally flouncy.

Flouncy? Is that what you call it?

I was kind of wondering that myself.

Yeah, seems more like fluffy was the word she was looking for.

You got something against fluffy?

Can we get back to the part where I got to sleep?

Oh, good…night. Zzzzzzzzzz

With this ceremonial sword I call our meeting to order.

Does anyone have anything to share on feline domination?

I like birbs.*

I am a birb.

More like a pterodactyl!

I could take it.

Look I are eating from feeder, like a real birb!

I think there may be something wrong with that birb.

Gosh, what was your first clue?
