The following is an actual transcript of events that happened on Sunday the 19th of June 2005. Actors have been used to protect the identities of those involved.

“Ooh look, a BEE!”
“Kitten! Don’t play with bees. Kitten – you’ll get stung!”
“Bees! Yay! Pounce, biff! Biff! Pounce. Biff! Biff, biff, pounce… OW! Awwwwwwww! Paw, ouch, ouch, ouch. Paw! Ouch!!!”
“Oh, Kitten! Silly fish! Let mummy see your paw…” -- sound of wriggling cat being picked up – much washing of nearside front paw -- “poor fish!”
-- wriggling followed by sound of cat leaping free, then more paw washing --
“Oww... Paw… sore, ouchy! Nasty, sore!” -- silence, during which more paw washing is undertaken, pause: two, three four… -- “Ooh look! A BEE!”

She gets it from her mother’s side.
