After a year of only being slightly chatty, Selina Ribcage has upped the caterwauling quotient. I thought it might be because her March Madness brackets are now completely worthless, but Carolyn thinks differently.
"Stop yelling at her." Carolyn said. "She's just very sensitive. She meows all the time to remind us of the senseless genocide in Rwanda. She wanders the house educating us. Silencing her is just wrong."
And the kitchen got very quiet.
"Shit." She said. "Now I'm going to get depressed every time she meows."
And, at the sound of her favorite word, Selina said "Mrrrrrrrrrreow?"
And, Carolyn stared down at her. "Shut up."
