The Cats

“I can’t smell it.”

“Are you serious? Mom, I can smell it from outside.”

“Doesn’t bother me.”

“Is this where your money is going? These cats? Do you even know how many?”

“Sixteen, I think.”

“There are more than that in the kitchen.”

“I know them as individuals. I don’t keep track like that.”

“It’s unsanitary, Mom. It stinks.”

“That’s just the litter boxes. They all use them. At least most of them do. Like I say, I can’t smell it.”

“What do you neighbors say?”

“They’re all renters now since the Shepardson boy sold their house.”

“They’re still neighbors.”

  1. Great story, and cats are great, … but people need to understand that it is cruel to confine too many in one place, call the cat protection league say I.

  2. I will never, ever understand a person keeping so many cats. They DO stink, even with litter boxes. Ick.

    You may assume I’m not a cat person. I really don’t mind one cat, maybe two. But not a whole houseful!

Whatever.
