Mine Mom broked my tail yesterday.
I asked her politely, "Mom, may I please go out on the upstairs deck and see what I can see?" Now, of course, I didn't just run fast out there, I had to take my time and 'spect everything and make sure I didn't step on anything unworldly. Well, I guess she was so wrapped up in her computer she didn't see I was 'vestigating and just slammed this huge, heavy, big, solid, metal door.....right on mine little calico tail. I screamed! I cried! I yowled! She opened the door real fast and I came running in, tail bent over, broked. She was all, "oh no, Patches, I am so sorry," and ran fast after me. I ran faster, down the stairs, tail all broked, it had a big bend in it.
Yes, Mom, I am ignoring you!
