Unreasonable

Humans seem without much capacity for logical argument.

Lynettea: 'Sasha, I don't want to stand out here in the street all day.'
Sasha: 'Why not? Anyway we aren't standing in the street all the time. We go out and then we go in and then we go out and...'
Lynettea: I have other things to do.'
Sasha: 'What?'
Lynettea: 'Tidy the house.'
Sasha: 'It looks good to me. My toys are just where I want them, scattered so I have something to pick up anywhere I am in the house. You could crawl around and get some balls from under the furniture, but you could do that tonight.'
Lynettea: 'I want to do some shopping.'
Sasha: 'I already have supplies of my cat food and it may rain if you go out. If we stay fairly close to the house we can dash in if it rains. I see a falling leaf... there is a pigeon on the roof. ..'
'
Lynettea: 'There is a dog coming, Sasha.'

Sasha: 'Well, let's stand behind the gate for a minute...and then we can go out again.'

See what I mean? Very small capacity for reasoned argument.

Hoomins are funny. Just give her a chance, she can try again. :)

Your human is quite willful, Sasha - remind her that your needs come first!

Oh just don't listen to her, Sasha. Then you don't have to argue at all. :)
