"M-My cat?" you ask.
"Yes, your cat," the aliens respond.
You're stunned, this is nothing like what you would have expected. Mechanically you let the aliens into your home and lead them to Mr. Snuffles, who is sitting regally on the back of the couch.
"Uh, here you go?" you say with a heavy touch of confusion.
Quickly the aliens rush over to your cat and whisper to it, nodding and even acting shocked at points. They then turn around, thank you, and leave.
