RE: Beans talk

Isabella will bring me a bowl if she's hungry enough and will come with a
low play growl if she's thirsty.  If I'm inattentive and take a sip of
water, she'll bark at me as if saying "Hey!  What about me?  I'm thirsty
too!"  The pups have learned from her, so we pretty much know when they need
something.  They make it pretty plain.

People don't give "critters" enough credit for how smart they really are.  

Give Beans a stroke for me, Jim.  Good cat.

Subject: [CHAT] Beans talk

Sometimes you just gotta listen to the animals, you know? I was outside 
planting a recently rediscovered grumichama and Beans came out and 
started talking to me. It seemed like it was important, so I made a 
move toward the house and she trotted ahead, like she expected me to 
follow. I didn't want to disappoint her, so I did follow. She beat me 
inside by 20 seconds or so, but when I got into the kitchen, there she 
was sitting beside her empty water bowl. And talking... actually giving 
me what for.
