“Unknowable” and I have been chatting about our cats who wanted to go outside, nagged us about it, and then changed their minds when they saw that it was raining or snowing. (Note: I don’t let my cats out anymore. Much too dangerous for them.)
Our cat Henry would step out at first, in case the rain or snow was an optical illusion. As soon as he got his feet wet he would look up at me and blame me. He just had to go out, he’d give me no peace if I didn’t let him out–and then the weather was my fault.
We love them anyway.
