Talking Dictionary234. The Cat Whisperer


234. Tim, 11, could read the minds of the family's two cats. "I know when they're happy," he told his sister Ellen. "I know when they're sad. I know when they're hungry. I know when they're thirsty." Ellen, 9, said, "First of all, cats aren't happy or sad. They're not dogs. Dogs are happy or sad. Cats are just there! Second, you can't just look at a cat and know if it's hungry or thirsty. You only know it's hungry if you see it eating. You only know it's thirsty if you see it drinking." Tim said, "Oh, yeah? Watch this. The cats are hungry now. I can read their minds."

She rolled her eyes. 1.8
