Catzee: Rascal, wanna play?
Rascal: No, it's too early.
Catzee: How come its too early? We're awake aren't we?
Rascal: Yeah, but Mom and Dad are still asleep.
Catzee: So, we're not sposed to play cuz they're sleepin'?
Rascal: No, We're not supposed to play because it's time for morning treats.
Catzee: But how can we get treats if Mom an' Dad are sleepin'?
Rascal: We wake them up.
Catzee: But I already tried that. They jus said “Go to bed” an' went back to sleep.
Rascal: We have to make them want to get up.
Catzee: How do we do that?
Rascal: Come here and let Me show you.
The two Cats exit to the spare bedroom which serves as a storage room and where Mom keeps her yarn and sewing stuff.
Rascal: See that little basket up there?
Catzee: The one on top of that pile of boxes wif the yarn an' little yarn sticks pokin' out of it?
Rascal: That's the one.
Rascal: Well, Mom wouldn't want it falling down. She wouldn't want all her stuff spread out all over the floor.
Rascal: Yeah. So if it accidentally fell down, Mom would want to get up to put it back again. And once she's out of bed she'll want to feed Us treats.
Catzee: Really??? Are ya gonna knock it down.
Rascal: Oh, I don't think I can jump that high. I don't think I can land on that little spot to get to it.
Catzee: Well I could!
Rascal: Really? Why don't you show Me?
Sound of a Cat scrambling followed by a loud
Mom, mumbling sleepily: What's going on!
Mom gets up to see what the noise was all about.
Mom: Alright. Who's been messing with my stuff!?!?!?!
Rascal: It wasn't Me!
Rascal: Ah, the joys of being the older and wiser Cat.
Catzee: Is it time for treats yet?
