Dear Paws to Talk,
A couple of times a week, my humans gather around the bright thing in the living room and become animated. If I stand in front of this thing and they tell me to move out-of-the-way. Then at times they scream and cheer at the bright thing. I just feel like hiding when they do this. They are so obnoxious. Why are my humans yelling at the bright thing?

It sounds like your humans are watching ball games. You know how we play ball in the yard? Well they have professional breeds that play on the bright thing. I am an exceptional ball player and could have been on the bright thing but I had too many other commitments such as training DiDi.
Humans work hard many days out of the week and usually watch the ball games to relax. I noticed they have teams they like to root for. Sometimes they even dress like the ball players. I think they look ridiculous dressed like this. Why not wear something more stylish such as a scarf with a lovely pattern?
When there is a game on, don’t let them forget you are apart of the family. Take someone’s seat on the sofa when they go to the bathroom. Help yourself to snacks that may be on the coffee table. The next time a game is on try not to be annoyed but enjoy some downtime with your humans. Life moves too quickly to not have some potato chips (I prefer the low-fat kind), cuddle and unwind.
