Neighbor’s Cat Finds Catnip

We grow catnip in the garden outside the home-office window.  Our
cat likes to lay in front of the window, and stare wistfully at the
catnip.

But today, he saw something unexpected.  The neighbor’s cat was
laying in the catnip.

    Oh dear the cat looks rather perturbed at being caught. Must be a republican cat getting his/her jollies on the side. If he/she was a progressive cat it’d be going c’mon in for a roll man – have a sniff ;)

    In two days you will have no catnip.

    No, your cat likes to *lie* in front of the window; it might like to *lay* its paws on some catnip. Similarly, the neighbor’s cat was *lying* in the catnip, but might like to *lay* its paws on some good hooch. “Lie” is an intransitive verb, which means that it doesn’t take a direct object; it means “to recline”; “Lay”, on the other hand, is a transitive verb, and takes an object. It means “to put” or “to place”. You’re just doing this to upset me, aren’t you? Now I have to lay the computer down and lie down to sleep.
