Just Say No to Cats

Apparently Dani wants another cat. Apparently, Dani wants VERONICA's cat. Veronica asked tonight if it would be okay if she mailed her cat to Dani. Dani and Veronica, please read below:

Dear Dani,
You may absolutely NOT have another cat. You know how I feel about The Cat we have now. Every day, I threaten to send her back to her mother (whom she now knows as Uncle James) in San Antonio. Why?? Why you ask? Don't play dumb with ME, young lady. Have you SEEN the fur balls lying around everywhere? They roll across the hardwoods like so many tumbleweeds in western New Mexico. Have you HEARD the wretching, spewing, coughing-up-an-alien sound she makes when you "forget" to brush her regularly? Have you STEPPED in barfed-up furball on the stairs in the middle of the night? NO? Hmpf. No. You may not have another cat. Not even Veronica's tabby.
Love,
Mom

Dear Veronica,
Have you got a few Kangaroos loose in the top paddock?? I'm going to have to pull the pin on this little idea of yours. If you make Dani a prezzy of that cat, I'm going to be cheesed off and send YOU a nice prezzy of AShlie's technicolor yawn. Your postie will be narked! Ashlie already has a bad case of the trots. She leaves little prezzies for me on the bottom step right in front of the dunny door. Stupid Cat. I do not need another one. Abso-bloody-lutely NOT. Don't make me chuck a spaz.
Love you heaps,
Stacy

Awwww....come on....puh-lease.....

(he's OLD - like geriatic OLD...and he doesn't need brushing...and he's house trained...and....oh, who am I kidding....;))

My mum was really excited that we might be getting rid of him too :D

Dani will be going off to college soon. Then who will take care of the cat?

I'm with you, Stacy. We have 2 cats and I'm about done with them. When you tell your home builder that you want carpet the same color as cat food, you know you've gone too far...

Veronica,

If the cat is THAT geriatric then he prob. wouldn't make the trip! IF he is sooooo wonderful, then why would you want to get rid of him???? LOL! I would have been begging my mom for him too! She would have said the same thing as Stace!! :( Poor Moggie!!!

Just wanted to add my vote of support for you Stacy...I was raised to say nothing at all if I didn't have something nice to say so I'll keep my opinion of cats to myself.

I love that cat to bits and pieces....but when he starts messin' with my scrapping stuff...

He is old - he's 14. That's the oldest cat I've ever had.

We currently have 3 cats - this one and his sister (who is the only one that is MY cat) and one that is a year younger....they all came from my sister's farm. We never planned to have 3 cats. So sometimes, we think it might be nice to get rid of one or more of them....

I had a chat with him last night and he's not that keen on traveling to Texas...I can't imagine why :)

Now & Then I follow the links on Veronica's blog and have a little read! - and this post was just too funny not to post a comment.
1). Clever Mum you are Stacy - love the tactic of stating the case against your dd in a public forum - great place to gather support!!
2). Wow Veronica taught you well during her stay - you have a beaut handle on our colloquialism! - No kangaroo's loose in your top paddock! - I think V has got the hint, loud & clear - her moggy ain't squatting at your joint! ;)
