One of the other ongoing wars in our household is merely some friendly mock-fighting that goes on between our pets. For example, our oldest cat Stanley who has just turned eleven, loves to play with our youngest pet Genevieve who is ten months old.
|"Prepare to do battle!" Stanley the cat shouts.|
|"Ok, you asked for it!" replies Genevieve.|
|"Is that the best you can do?" asks Stanley.|
"I'll even lie here on the floor if it makes
it easier for you."
|"Hey, there's no need to be snide," Genevieve replies.|
|"Yawn!" I really don't find you at all|
threatening," Stanley says.
|"Ok, I've had enough of your cheek, cat!"|
|"Take that! And that!"|
|"And... OW! You didn't have to use your claws!"|
