I confess that I find much to admire about you. You are clever little creatures, yes you are!
You give new meaning to the terms “cooperation” and “teamwork”. Or maybe it’s the other way around?
You would leave humans eating your dust in the sport of powerlifting. I might be misinformed but I’ve never heard of a human who can carry 50x his/her own weight!
You’ve mastered the art of magic – appearing within seconds when we leave a crumb or foodstuff unattended.
You are hard workers that don’t mind clearing away the debris of dead insects that litter our floors.
You have some not so nice qualities as well, but right now, my biggest disappointment in you is this –
Why have you not yet figure out a way to catch fleas?! They are smaller than you in size – mostly. They have one-track minds, only looking for things to jump on and suck dry. They are tasty, yum-yum! – but you’ll not think me rude if I decline your kind invitation to dinner. . . or lunch. . . or breakfast, I’m sure.
Can’t you be true to your clever little ways and find a solution to my problem, I beg of you?!
Kieter begs you twice as hard and promise not to flick you off her tail when you catch a ride from outside!!
