Lunatic: "What is my fiendling up to this morning?"
Cat: *whine, whine*
Lunatic: "And I have such a pretty little fiendling!"
Cat: *looks in closet*
Lunatic: "It has a tail, and ears..."
Cat: *turns around, rubs face on box of books*
Lunatic: "And huge, lantern-like eyes.... Is my fiendling secretly Gollum?"
Cat: *pointedly doesn't answer*
