Gmail, while discussing the hunting and trapping of cats* with a friend.
Brian: So with ye're stay of execution, I mean deportation, ye gonna get another kitty?That's right folks! Claire and I are planning to get a parrot.
me: Erm... probably not. At least, not right now.me: We're looking into getting Permanent Residency, then getting a pet that's a bit more long-lived, won't appreciate being called a pet in later life, and probably needs more than a box to sleep in...Brian: :OThey're like, waaaay more expensive than kittens.me: I know, I know! But you can teach them to talk and do party tricks as they get older.Brian: Get two! That way, you can ignore them, and they'll entertain themselves!
Wait... you thought WHAT?!?
*- All for a good cause. They get trapped, neutered and released back into the wild. Spay your pets folks!
