I struggled to get plastic off the interior package.
"You should train the cat to let you lift a paw and use her claws to open stuff."
I picked up one of the cat's forepaws, pushed out a claw, and sliced through the plastic with it. Ash purred.
"Did that work?"
"Yep. Good kitty, thanks for your assistance." I paused to cuddle the cat, then pulled the rest of the plastic off.
