The human, aka The Staff aka TAT aka Totally Useless, is deaf in one ear and hard of hearing in the other at the moment! I think it's to do with the fact her brain cells are leaking or something! Anyway, you know me, I'm not totally lacking in the milk-of-kitty-kindness department, but this situation has meant some stressful and exceedingly difficult conversations. So, not only is she deficient at reading my body language (true of most humans!), but now she can't even hear my
whinging moaning meowinations. How is a kitty supposed to make himself understood?
Picture the scene: I place myself directly in front of human. I point to my mouth.
Me: Any chance of a bite to eat?
Me: You know! Food?
She: What's that?
Me: I . WOULD . LIKE . SOME . FOOD ......... please!
She: You want to go out?
Me: Read my lips! FEED ME!
Me: I WANT SOMETHING TO EAT!!!!
She: Its raining!
Me: I'M STARVING TO DEATH HERE!
Me: Ok, I'll go out, then!
She: Do you want some food?
