me -(glancing over at the bookshelf next to the desk and seeing Zap’s tail waving back and forth as if in preparation for a leap) do i see a tail over there? is it attached to a whole cat by any chance?
disembodied voice from the floor behind the bookcase (she knows i have something up there and she wants into it. it’s just a newspaper, but i want to read it, she wants to play in it and i gave her some catnip to distract her!)-Neeyooo! (no)
then she seemed to realize her attempt to sneak up and steal the newspaper had been thwarted by the fact that she was baked and gave herself away. she sighed audibly and said ‘riiigh’ (right) and slunk off.
