We have a cat boarding right now who is a real personality. We'll call her "Fluffy" to protect her privacy. Fluffy started talking to me the minute I walked in the door this morning. We always board Fluffy up front so she can see what's going on in the world. If she's in back, she gets mean. We also open the back door for her so she can see out into the world through the screen door. So, Fluffy started talking the instant I walked into the door. I walked over to her and started scratching her head through the cage door. She purred a lot, and walked back and fourth, and generally enjoyed herself but still talking. As I walked away she got louder, like "Hey, where are you going, I didn't give you permission to leave yet!!!" A few minutes later my kennel assistant was cleaning her cage. "Hey, Dr. Can'tSpell, can you hold Fluffy for me while I clean her cage?"
I go over and pet Fluffy while her cage was cleaned. My assistant takes out a soaking wet litterbox and replaces it with a clean one. I put Fluffy back into her cage and close the door. And then Fluffy goes right to the litterbox and promptly urinates into it. I guess earlier she was complaining about the service and telling me she was out of toilet paper!
