Who Dat? A Screenplay

Fade In
The night is dark as the human MOM sleeps. She snores at an alarming decibel.

A darling and handsome mancat perches on the nightstand, his tummy rumbling with hunger.

Meom? Meom!

Nothing. Mom snores on as the kitty grows desperate. He looks around for something to waken her. He notices her glasses and begins to nudge them noisily off the night stand. 

(Noticing it is Greyson)
Oh it's you Greyson. I thought it was Finny...

Mom rolls over and returns to sleep - without getting up to feed the kitty. Greyson is weak from hunger when he decides to take a sip of water from the cup Mom has tried to hide. 

The cup teeters on the edge as Greyson presses his head deeper. Suddenly gravity takes over and water splashes onto the bed and sleeping Mom. 

Mom leaps from the bed is shock. She realizes what happened and instead of yelling she snuggles the hungry cat. 

Oh Greyson, Finny used to do that too! Has she been telling you what to do? Let's get you some food buddy...

A seed is planted in young Greyson as he wolfs down his early morning meal. Already he plots his next move...

  1. Time for your mom to get a zippy cup if she wants to be allowed to snooze, but we know she won't. She likes the memories. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  2. We are reminded of a Pointer Sisters parody...Who's Trainin' WHO?

  3. Uh-oh - Greyson's learned The Secret!

  4. Fin knows what works and is willing to pass it on! I sneeze on the human. That really gets her attention :)

  5. Mom resorted to keeping her glasses in a glasses case by the bed for this very reason. And sometimes someone goes for the water glass (which is unbreakable since we had unhappy experiences with actual glass), but we usually wait until Mom is out of the room, and then tip over the water glass onto the bed and nightstand. We are training Mom to empty the water glass FIRST THING when she gets out of bed, so that this doesn't happen.

  6. And THAT is how you train a peep!


  7. You are doing well learning from the wisdom of Finny young Mr Greyson.

  8. Ah! Fin passes on another trick...and you're a good learner, Greyson. :)
