Finally, on to the Polish felids. They seem to have very different philosophies on life.
Leon: I had a busy day
Hili: I’ve considered all options.
Hili: As usual, I will have a look to see what’s in my bowls and I will have a nap.
Hili: Rozważyłam wszystkie opcje.

Hili: Jak zwykle, zajrzę co jest w miseczkach i idę spać.
