"Look, ram, just listen to reason. I'm a cat. I have soft little foot pads and delicate fur. I can't walk in the wet snow. But I'm light as a feather, and you have strong sheep legs and strong sheep hooves. You could carry me around on your strong sheep back all day and never even know I'm up there. What do you get out of it? Respect! This won't be undignified for you. I promise. The opposite is true. Everyone will see how strong and selfless you are, and they'll be impressed. In fact, I guarantee that carting a cat around on your back is gonna make you extra popular with the ewes around here. Trust me."
