Linus (very concerned): Mattie ate one of the cats.
Emilie: No, Linus. I’m sure Mattie did not eat the cat.
Linus: Then, where is it?!
Emilie (growingly concerned) : Let’s go see.
Linus runs up stairs and grabs one of the cat bowls. All of the food is gone.
Emilie: (big sigh of relief)
Note: Both of the cats are fine and fed. Mattie’s tummy is full too. Full of dog AND cat food (and the occasional bagel.)
