I have *never* been treated so shamefully, people. Not once, in all my years with my Mom, has this ever happened. She IGNORED me. Absolutely, completely ignored me. I ran back and forth, jumping on the bed, the couch, the table, trying to get her attention.
Why? Does it matter? Fine - she was looking for that silly girl kitteh Leia, because she disappeared and Mom couldn't find her. I think she said something about her maybe having gotten outside, off the Porch while we had our Porch Time tonight. And she was getting all worked up about it, getting out the flashlight and all. Finally Leia wandered out from wherever she was.
Oh no, don't go getting all kissy-face on me now, hoomin. Too late!
Hmpf. Time for the Back of Disrespect.
