Me: Shiva's been whining and crying all day and I don't know what she wants. She has plenty of food and water.
Rick: Is her litter box clean?
Me: Yep. And I've been picking her up when she cries and petting her all day.
Rick: Have you played string?
Rick: Play string with her. That's probably what she wants.
Replace the words "food and water" with "bottles" and "litter box" with "diaper" and possibly even "petting" with "rocking" and you'll see what I mean.
I can just see us with an actual baby that won't stop crying at 3 in the morning. When I wake Rick to complain about it, he'll turn over and say, "Play string with her" before falling back asleep.
