DOMINO: Early wallpaper in small sheets which originally imitated marble and later carrying patterns. Wallcoverings manufactured today which imitate the original. The earliest dominos were popular icons representing God and the saints. (from Wallcoverings Online)
AN IMAGINED CONVERSATION BETWEEN MY TWO CATS
Domino & Logan
Logan lies in a lump on the floor and observes Domino walking towards him, only moving his head in order to watch her walk.
Domino: I’m going for nibbles. Come with.
Logan: I’m bored!
Domino: I said come with me for nibbles. Now.
Logan: I’m bored! (bats at her feet without conviction)
Domino: Eek! Stop that!
Logan: But I’m bored! (continues to waver his paw at her feet)
Domino: Stop, stop, stop! That’ll do, pig!
Logan: What’s a pi—hey, are you calling me fat?
Domino: If the fur fits…. Just barely in your case.
Logan: I don’t like you right now. (while sulking, rolls over, pulls himself up, meanders to kitchen, eats food.)
Domino: Oh, don’t be silly. (walks over to him and butts him with her head) Here, clean my head. You like doing that.
Logan: Okay. (after some half-hearted licking, pulls her into a cuddle with his arm wrapped around her) Awww, c’mere. I can’t stay mad at you.
Domino: That’s nice. Don’t tell the tall woman that we do this, all right?
Logan: She doesn’t understand me anyway. I shout and shout sometimes and she still won’t feed me.
Domino: Two words for you, you little fool – automatic feeder.
Logan: Oh. Well then I’m going to bed again.
Domino: Suit yourself. I’ll be in the bath. Goodnight.
Logan: Okay (conks out)
