Regarding pleasure and bliss

  • You aren't done yet
  • My bed isn't soft enough. It needs to be fluffed a little more.
  • I may need another pillow to adjust myself just right.
  • Or, maybe, you can make room for me on your bed.
  • Move over.  It's warm where you are.
  • Ahhhhhhh


Regarding nourishment

  • I want the good stuff
  • You fed me that yesterday.  I want new stuff.  I can tell that came out of the refrigerator. 
  • What about that food on your plate.  Are you better than me?
  • Yes, that cute little plate with my picture and your food on it is just right.
  • Please heat it up for me.  I like my food warm.
  • Ahhhhhhh


Regarding the exquisite outdoors

  • It's raining, I'll wait.

  • Oops. That wasn't me.
  • Don't I look just precious in this little raincoat?

  • Ahhhhhhhhh
