How will you know if your dishes are really clean unless we sniff-inspect them for you?
You’re welcome, Humans.
–Chief Inspector Lily and Lieutenant Sniffer Luna
Humans can fall into an obsessive pattern of repeating words like “down.” Maybe they have developed an annoying tic? Maybe they are simply confused, as you are obviously “up” on the counter as opposed to “down” on the floor? Either way, it’s no use trying to puzzle out their meaning. Ignoring your humans until they are quiet is the only way to help them.
