"Hey, so we're going on a road trip? What a fantastic idea! I'm only mildly terrified of travelling by car. No, it's cool, I'll take some cat diazepam or something. I'll probably only howl miserably for the first fifty miles or so anyway. What do you mean, I can't come? I thought we were best friends! Oh, man, that's a low blow, bringing up that spraying incident. That was at the very end of a long drive, ok? I'm a different cat these days. What? Oh, whatever. Go and have a nice time with your human friends, who are obviously much more entertaining than me. No, it's fine. I've got things to do anyway."
