A few weeks ago we met up with some friends at a park. There was a house next door, which had a grey cat that was quite friendly. The cat decided to see what was going on in the park, & it didn’t take long for Asher to notice it.
The kids were petting the cat, & knowing that Asher likes to carry our cat, Thanet around, I warned him not to try to pick this cat up.
“Why not?” Asher inquired.
“Because not all cats like to be carried around, & it night scratch you,” I responded.
I could see the wheels turning in his head. He was clearly puzzling something over, but I wasn’t prepared for his response. He stopped mid-pet & asked, “Mummy, is it a skunk?”
