Today is the day that a moratorium on cats on the internet has been declared. I'm feeling ornery, though. Today, I will post about cats.
This week, my niece learned an important lesson about cat-ownership.
"When I grow up," she declared, "I am going to have 6 cats and a chihuahua."
"Six cats!" I exclaimed, "That's a lot of cats!"
"I like cats," she said calmly.
I looked at her seriously, "I have 4 cats," I said, "Do you know how many litter-boxes we have?"
"Two?" she guessed.
"Three. And do you know how many times a day we clean the three litter-boxes for four cats?"
"Twice a day, we clean three litter-boxes for four cats. Are you sure you want six?"
"I think I'll just have one cat," she said.
