Ponderings by Picasso
Take the female human in my household. She is convinced I am deaf.
I catch her talking really loud to me or getting up close to my ears when speaking.
I totally ignore her, which just convinces her even more.
But, every once in a while, I react when she makes a noise.
I see that look at her face like "Wow, the cat can hear."
After that glimmer of hope, I don't flinch the rest of the day.
It's just too easy.
