This is Chester. He’s being somewhat difficult.
I’m trying to discuss the nuances of a Mexican standoff, a concept I’m sure he is fully aware of.
He keeps telling me that he’s part Siamese, so how the hell could he be in the middle of a Mexican standoff.
He then says, in a tone that drips sarcasm, I’m not Mexican either, but part British, so would it not be more appropriate to call it a British-Sino standoff?
I’m doubting he knows what a standoff is anyway.
And since this encounter started he’s avoided looking me in the eye, except for one condescending as, when I first arrived, as if to say I was interrupting his morning siesta.
I’m wondering if it’s not time to get another cat and update our mouse catching equipment.
Oh, yes, now I’ve got his attention.
New cat, what’s this about a new car?
Have I found his Achilles heel?
We’ll find out next time when I pull the new cat routine on him
