I was in such a fowl mood today, (although I must say I felt a lot better after seeing all the responses to the yesterdays post. If we can connect with each other over sharp shears, there’s hope) I think I’ll write about yesterday……
…..Yesterday, I finished my potholder quilt and went to the Cossayuna post office. When I came in the postmistress was saying to the customer in front of me, ” I thought her husband said he’d divorce her if she brought home any more kittens.” The customer said her friend didn’t care, she was taking the kitten and he could divorce her if he wanted too.
Then I got the rest of the story. The customer had taken in a stray cat which was pregnant. One morning she woke up and the cat was lying on her bed nursing 6 black kittens. The woman said her husband snores, so she didn’t hear anything unusual during the night. “I know it’s disgusting, ” she said, “but the kittens and bed were so clean, even the afterbirth was gone.” She threatened to bring a kitten into the post office hoping the postmistress would take one. Then she confessed that she really wanted to keep them all.
I’m hoping the next time I go to the post office there will be a box of kittens. Not that I want a kitten, but I wouldn’t mind cuddling with one for a few minutes.
