(Don’t) Jump

Mouse: “Chaplin, why did you trap the Bean up on the fireplace?”
Chaplin: “I was hoping to get a break from him trying to play with me.”
Java Bean: “I think maybe I’ll just jump …”
Lulu: “Don’t jump! You’re not a cat!”

Mouse: “Have you tried just asking him to back off?”
Chaplin: “Well I’ve whapped him with my paws several times, but he just thinks it’s fun.”
Charlee: “My approach is to run away. He thinks that’s fun too.”
Java Bean: “I could be a cat.”
Lulu: “You’re definitely not a cat.”

Mouse: “What do your Mama and Dada do when this happens?”
Chaplin: “Usually something Mama calls ‘redirecting’, to get him interested in something else.”
Charlee: “Yeah, like sometimes she scatters treats on the floor for him to find.”
Java Bean: “I’m a mixed breed, so …”
Lulu: “You’re not THAT much of a mixed breed!”

Mouse: “Hmm, has it occurred to you that you could also find and eat these treats?”
Chaplin: “But then Bean would try to play with us again.”
Mouse: “I’m sure you could come to some sort of treat-sharing arrangement. Lulu has been teaching him about capitalism, after all.”
Charlee: “Treat-sharing arrangement, you say … ?”
Java Bean: (grunting)
Lulu: “Why are you grunting?”
Java Bean: “I’m trying to to see if I can retract my claws.”
