I've been thinking how, over the years we'd give voice to Orbit's antics, attitudes and facial expressions. As much as he was a crusty old man- and we certainly had that voice down solid- I'm reminded of so many other times when we'd give him the voice of a toddler.
We were both guilty of talking to him- and making him talk- like a child. If you're truly a cat lover you'll know how this works. It's so funny how he could be both at the same time, and we entertained ourselves (at his expense, of course, though he'd say otherwise) for hours on end almost daily.
So many times I could sit there with him on my lap, talking to him in whichever voice I chose. He'd always do one of two things; Either he'd completely ignore me, or he'd look at me blankly, his eyes saying "wow, what an idiot, talking to a cat, as if I can understand what you're saying."
Just some random reminiscing for a rainy Saturday afternoon, I guess.
