Alien Kittens Ready to Take Over the World!

"Okay, here's the deal. They think we are the average kittens, but we all know better, so let's keep things on the down low till we get a chance to take over. Got it?"
"Who put you in charge? You're not the boss of me! Cobalt, you think you know everything, but I'm in charge of me!"
"Chaco, you are such a whiner! I'm just telling you not to give away our secrets. They don't know we have special powers. Remember, just act like kittens. Run, play, jump- you know. Like kittens!"
"What about the big thing out there? That gray furry thing? I think he suspects we're not just kittens. He watches us awfully close. What is that thing anyway? He's so big, and that long fur!"
"Starburst, that's an adult cat. There's some other ones out there, too. We've got the Mom People fooled. They just ooh and aah over us. Won't they feel funny when we take over?"
"Avalon, are you listening? Don't mess up! Chaco, stop stalking around with your tail up! You look strange. Don't let them take your picture with your ears up either because they are a dead giveaway that we are NOT from here. Your ears are just too big!"
"Cobalt, stop being bossy! We got it, we got it! But I have to say, I kinda like this pretending to be kittens. It's pretty fun, and all that hugging and kissing - I could get used to it. Maybe we should consider just staying like we are for awhile."
"Avalon, Starburst, somebody slap Chaco! Shhh - here comes somebody. Look kitten-like!"

The Aliens Introduced!

"Attention everyone! Attention! It is time to have a look at some of our newest additions. From now on, it is important that they are not referred to as "The Aliens." That is offensive and hurts their feelings."
"Armand, what do you know? The Mom People refer to them as "Spiderlings." Which is worse? I'd rather be an alien rather than a spider!"
"Jackson, we will NOT stoop to the level of the humans! Aliens, Spiders! No, they must be referred to by name, as we all are. Henceforth, they will be called by their proper names."
"Armand, you are so pompous! You don't even know their names, do you? No matter what you say, they look strange. So what if they are aliens? How cool is that?"
"Tia, I am not pompous. I am just concerned for the feelings of the ali.. excuse me, new arrivals. I would not be so crass as to hurt their feelings."
"Forget their feelings - what about their EARS? Who put those ears on those things? Do you think they can hear a mouse squeak in the next county?"
"Jackson, that is so rude! Yes, their ears are a little oversized, true, but they are so friendly and sociable. You know, they're all going to get homes before we do. Everybody wants the cute little ones, and in this case, the strange little ones, but nobody seems to want us. Do you know that I've never had my own special person to love me? I think that would be the best thing ever!"
"Liza, please don't be sad! Someone is out there right now looking for you, and they'll find you one day. Just remember, Piper got a home, so you will, too. Okay, maybe those aliens (shut up Armand! I can call them that if I want to!) will be snapped up in a second, but we will too someday. Now, let's go look at at those ali... excuse me, "new arrivals."
"We are only meeting two today - Chaco and Starburst. Cobalt and Avalon are being a little shy. So, be nice everyone. DON"T call them aliens! And don't mention the big ears!"

"Mom, Can We Have One?"

"Hi, I'm Nickelodeon and this is my brother Boomerang. Have you seen this place? Look! Look at this thing to climb on, and look at this thing to jump on, and look at this cool sleeping place, and look it's a shelf to sit on, and..."
"Nicki, look! I can see some things out this window I have NEVER seen before! Oh my gosh! I've got to have one! There's more! They flutter and fly! I'm so excited! What are they?"
"Boomer, move over! Close your mouth! EEEEEEEEEEk! What are those things? We've got to get out there and get one! Mom, Mom, come here! Look, look! What are they? Can we have one? "
"Calm down, guys. You can't get out through the window, sorry. Yes, they are delicious to snack on, loads of fun to chase, but humans frown on us catching them. They're birds."
"Birds? Are they toys? Can we have one in here?"
"No, they're not toys. They're alive. They're real."
"Real? For sure? I want one. I want to chase it. Please, Mom. Get us one."
"You can't have one, now stop it. They're just to look at. You've got plenty of other toys. Play with them."
"Yeah, come on Nicki. Let's explore. I like this place. There's something on the other side of this door, but I don't know what it is. They're mighty strange looking, but I don't know. Come on!"
"Boomer, let's play chase! Tag, you're it!"
