"Thank you for this gift and for your instruction," meows Tallstar once everything seems to have been covered.

Permalink

"You're welcome. Do I need an escort to the border?"

Permalink

"Morningflower will walk back with you, yes."

Permalink

"Thanks!" Walk walk walk.

"Do all the Twolegs Clans have computers too?" asks Morningflower once they're a ways away from Tallstar.

Permalink

"I don't know how widespread they are on this planet and they aren't as good as the kind I make anyway."

Permalink

"The Twoleg Clans where you're from," she amends.

Permalink

"Oh, yeah, there everybody's got them pretty much."

Permalink

"Do they cause much strife between you?"

Permalink

"Not really. i mean, there's - people who'll be mean on the internet? Especially if the person they're talking to doesn't know who they are. But mostly computers are great. And if you are not having a great time on the computer you can go do something else."

Morningflower responds to that only with a thoughtful swish of her tail.  At least it's a nice place for a walk; the moors are pretty.

Cam hums after enough silence has gone by in his opinion.

Permalink

"What is that."

Permalink

"Scarborough Fair. - twolegs like to make decorative sounds."

Permalink

"Like purring?"

Permalink

"- maybe? I thought purring was more like communicating your emotional state than like decoration."

Permalink

"It's a communication and a comfort, for cats.  Is it different for Twolegs?"

Permalink

"Well, we don't purr, though we do like it when cats purr. But I think it's not the same thing as music. Are there things cats like just because they're pretty?"

Permalink

". . . I don't know if just because they're pretty.  That seems a little shallow."

Permalink

"There's more depth and complexity to any specific kind of music but the class of it is for prettiness. Do you like... flowers, or autumn leaves, or sunsets? Do you prefer the particular configurations of colors and stripes on some cats to others? Are there things you'd go sniff solely because they smell good and not because you needed information about them?"

Permalink

"I like seeing the heather on the hills, but an important part of my liking is that it's my home.  I like looking up at the night sky, but I would care less about it without the connection to our warrior ancestors.  Obviously some cats look better than others, but that doesn't matter very much if they're not also brave and honorable."

Permalink

"Huh. I suppose it's possible that cats are just not very aesthetic sorts."

Permalink

"I think kittypets are generally shallower.  Why do Twolegs not like to purr?"

Permalink

"We can't, physiologically, it's just not how our throats are set up. I guess some people can make sort of similar sounds but it's not the same thing and it's not really instinctual."

Permalink

"Oh.  That's too bad."
