"Yeah, but it's just watermelon," said Xavier, wiping himself off.  "Could be worse. And to not tempt fate, maybe I won't go by the primate exhibit."

After a short walk, you find yourself at the start of the primate exhibit. First up were the orangutans, which were busy climbing on a few trees and swinging on a tire swing.

"I don't doubt it," said Xavier.  "So you never did the cat thing, right? Is the cat thing really a thing?  Or do people who are out a lot just like pet cats?"

"I've never thought I needed a familiar," Patricia said. "If that's what you mean. I'd rather not risk them damaging the books."

"I don't know, a dog that could talk would be interesting," Patricia said. "I'll have to consider that. It'd probably be better than a toad."

"What would you even use a pet toad for?" asked Xavier, rhetorically.  "I mean, a cat or a dog could probably be useful, at least."

Patricia gave to a slight smack on the shoulder.

"You had better be careful," she said with a chuckle. "But yes, some can be."

"Nah, it's cool," said Xavier.  "It's been long enough, you know?  He wasn't as bad as the worst ones.  I mean, he was acting out of a good impulse, you know?  But he had bad judgment for what was going to happen, and he really messed up the implementation of it."
