I once tried to use telepathy to talk to my cat. Olive was less than six months old then, a sweet and compact ball of fur-love with a habit of peeing on my bed. Over time, cleaning up cat pee and trying to anticipate where she might inappropriately pee next easier to win the Powerball, btw became incredibly stressful, not to mention expensive. Too often I came home eager to cozy up in bed only to find yet another smelly wet spot. I had to divulge my feline baggage every time I dated someone new or changed living situations.
