You don't have to own a
cat to appreciate this one. You don't even have to like 'em!
We were dressed and ready to go out for the New Years Eve Party. We
turned on a night light, turned the answering machine on, covered our
pet parakeet and put the cat in the backyard. We phoned the local cab
company and requested a taxi.
The taxi arrived and we opened the front door to leave the house. The
cat we put out in the yard, scoots back into the house. We didn't want
the cat shut in the house because she always tries to eat the bird.
I go out to the taxi, while my husband went inside to get the cat. The
cat runs upstairs, with my husband in hot pursuit. Waiting in the cab, I
don't want the driver to know that the house will be empty for the
night. I explain to the taxi driver that he will be out soon, 'He's just
going upstairs to say goodbye to my mother.'
A few minutes later, he gets into the cab. 'Sorry I took so long,' he
said, as we drove away. 'That stupid bitch was hiding under the bed. I
had to poke her with a coat hanger to get her to come out! She tried to
take off, so I grabbed her by the neck. Then, I had to wrap her in a
blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked! I hauled her fat
ass downstairs and threw her out into the back yard!'
The cab driver nearly hit a parked car.
