I’m not better, okay? I’m not better! And I keep waiting for someone to figure that out, and - they don’t! I mean, of course they don’t. ‘Cause as long as I say the right things and I act the right way, they’re happy because that means they cured me, right?
“Oh, Tallulah with three Ls and an H, just you watch me. What do I need? Oh, I don’t know. How about a great big genetic laboratory? Oh look, I’ve got one. Laszlo, just you hold on. There’s been too many deaths today. Way too many people have died. Brand new creatures and wise old men and age old enemies. And I’m telling you, I’m telling you right now, I am not having one more death! You got that? Not one. Tallulah, out of the way. The Doctor is in.”
I feel like there might be this sort if unspoken agreement among the Kirkwall crew to always point out nearby cats if Anders is in the party
Hawke does it because they care about their friend/lover and know how much the little moments of freedom and happiness mean to him. They also know the stories, about Pounce, and Mr. Wiggums before him, that make the mage’s borderline unhealthy affinity for cats suddenly completely understandable. And if he looks completely fucking adorable while petting the animals with a big smile on his face, well, that’s just the icing on the cake
Varric does it because even though he believes there is absolutely nothing dignified about a grown man cooing at small, furry creatures that usually seem mostly disinterested in the attention, he knows how much stress the mage is under and wants nothing more than for him to just relax for once. And hey, Blondie deserves some moments where he can just enjoy the simple things in life and be as completely undignified as he pleases
Merrill not only likes pointing them out, but often joins the healer in his apparent endeavour to pet every cat in Thedas. She loves them too, even if she can’t afford one of her own, and petting them makes her happy. Not as happy as it makes Anders, but it’s always nice when she can see him smile for once instead of always being so sad, and it gives them something pleasant to talk about for a change
Fenris does it not because he actually cares at all, no, of course not, why the hell would he care about the mage’s happiness? It does tend to shut him up, though, trading the rants about mage rights for a string of increasingly strange and nonsensical endearments that are still somehow far less irritating. Or, at least, that’s the reason he always gives when questioned, vehemently denying any possibility of kindness as a motivation
Aveline gives a huff as she points out the nearest cat, looking very much the same as a parent of a child who has just spotted a particularly interesting object to play with and is now begging for permission to go do just that. She may not be his biggest fan, but this bizarre group of friends Hawke has put together is the closest thing to family she has now, and Aveline takes care of her own, difficult and irritating mages included
Isabela does it because he enjoys it, so why not? Sure, he could have far more interesting pursuits than petting small balls of fluff, but hell, if it makes him happy, he deserves it. The poor guy never gets a chance to really lighten up anymore. Besides, she can’t deny that some of those cats are damn cute, and sometimes she joins him and Merrill, sharing stories about the mousers she used to have on her ship
