At my house the dog talks with the cat. We can barely say a few words. You should hear them gossiping about us: that the food we give them in not very good, that it is repetitive (almost the same everyday), that we leave them home alone for too much time. This has to stop. Immediately. So today we have a family meeting: me, my wife, the cat and the dog. We have to decide when and how much are they allowed to talk. And, most important, they should stop talking when we go out.
