She's Not Just My Cat
She came to me this morning to complain that her kitten is stupid. Apparently, her kitten found her way up the cupboard & can't come down. Nothing unusual about that. Definitely not stupid & I said so to her.
I asked again about the vet visit. As expected, she hasn't done anything yet. She was in fact, quite defensive when I reminded her that she is responsible for her kitten's wellbeing.
Her retort was "for the record, she is not just my cat. She belongs to all 3 of us. I don't see why I should be the one to take her to the vet. The agreement we have is, my roommates pay for the food & litter & I pay for the toys."
"Erh, what about vet? Cats do fall sick you know?"
"Well we haven't figure that one out yet."
For a second, I didn't know what to make of that answer. I asked, "if all 3 of you love her as much as you said you do, then does it matter who takes her to the vet? You can split the bill three ways right?"
"I suppose so, let me have a think" was her answer.
I took a deep breath & walked away. I can't possibly answer her without slapping her.
