I was just wondering..

You called yourself an amphibian once.. Was this a simple slip of the tongue ((or, in this case, keys..))? After all, aren't reptiles and amphibians different species?

I mean no disrespect, sensei.. But I'm only a cat, and I can't help my curiosity on the matter...

While this specific example eludes me at this time, I assume I did so in the interest of witty and mentally dexterous alliteration or some other good use of my excellently well-kept mind, but that's neither here nor there.

While it would be true that I am not an amphibian in the sense of the scientific classification of animals, I am, as it would turn out, an amphibian according to your dictionary definition of the word: "An animal capable of living on land and in the water."

I hope that has satiated your curiosity.

Ahh, I see. Well, that does make more sense, then.
Thank you!

And, I do apologize.. I remember seeing it somewhere ((maybe it wasn't you who said it after all)), but now I can't find the statement...
I hope I haven't wasted your time, sensei.
