Your cat story is a good example of the differences between real life conversations and babble. I think the big difference is that on babble, even when we're using our own examples, we also usually include some empathy in our posts. I guess that's the luxury of being able to write a post. You can include many points at once.

In real life, a conversation (generally) goes back and forth and it evolves. You might have a chance to raise one point and then the other person will respond and then you respond to that and so forth. You miss your opportunity to raise all those other points. And I guess, in that way, if empathy wasn't your very first point, it would be easy to fall to the wayside.

I know (in my case at least), I feel a bit of a pressure to keep a conversation going. I'm not the best people person. So I might launch into another dead cat story because I'm not smart enough/quick enough to think to be empathetic.

By the way, sorry about your puss. It's heartbreaking when your kitty dies.
