So, we got a brand new carpet in the living room.
I also own a neurotic cat. Dusty immediately came and checked it out, delighted in the new-carpet, non dog smell. Of course, then Simon came in and flopped down with his toy, and everything was all fine...
Ah, yes, we are nearly the same colors, are we not? I shall allow you to sit with me and enjoy the new carpet smell as well.
Hmm, I have changed my mind. You are a feeelthy dog, and you need to be washed clean before you continue to sleep on this carpet.
Dusty: Unclean, unclean! Simon: ... is this bad touching?
