What my cat taught me about my actions

One evening about a month ago I went out into the garage to get something out of the car. Motorboat, our cat, followed me. Fascinated by all of the scents in the garage, he moseyed from one item to the next. "Motorboat, get in the house," I called out. He would have nothing to do with …
