Question #25 of CoAnQuMo is one best answered by my cat, who will be filling in for me in this blog post.
Here’s the question: What language does Selkie speak and what does he think about birds?
I speak cat. I’ve always spoken cat. Cat is all I know, though I understand the following human phrases:
I also understand daddy’s kissy “chirp” noise to mean that I should come. And I am alarmed by the sound of garbage trucks in the alley and human farting noises. Mommy is LOUD! I don’t think it’s a message for me, though.
Speaking of chirping, you asked if I like birds. I love birds. I see them and want them. I can tell my mom doesn’t like this, but I can’t help it. I speak fast-cat when I see birds. I trill at them. They flit around and I watch them and I drool. A lot.
Thank you for asking your questions. I am done now.
with trills and purrs,
