Hello there. This is Len, author of “Adventures in Single Parenting” and
creator of the website, singleparenting.us, and welcome to this video.
This is another one of my short stories about things that happened with me
and the kids growing up, and this is another animal story. If you’ve heard
my earlier story about the dog and the cat, the cat that came to live with
us when the dog came, this is a different cat we’re going to talk about.
That first cat disappeared, and we think we know what happened to it, but
we won’t discuss that in this video.
So I arrived home from work one day, and there was a cat in the house. My
daughter was there, too. And I looked at her and I said, “What’s that?” And
she said, “Well, dad, it’s a cat. It just followed me home, dad.” She said,
“I didn’t touch it. I didn’t pet it. Crazaberamer I didn’t feed it. I didn’t do
anything. It just followed me home.” Yeah, right. Of course, it just
followed you home.
Well, it went and laid down in one of the rooms of the house and had seven
kittens. So now I have eight cats. Well, as these kittens grew up we began
to run ads in the paper for “Give-away free kitten to a good home,” and
people came to see the kittens. Now my daughter had her favorite kitten in
the litter. My son had his favorite kitten in the litter. And I got to tell
you, I had mine, too. So somehow when people came to look at the kittens,
they didn’t take one of the favorite kittens. They took the other ones. So
we did manage to get rid of four of those original kittens, but three of
them stayed behind. My favorite, my daughter’s favorite, my son’s favorite.
And they continued to nurse.
And as long as they were nursing, the veterinarians wouldn’t remanufacture
the mother so she couldn’t have more kittens so she got pregnant and had
seven more kittens. So now, we had a total of 11 cats. Well, when this
second litter of kittens were grown enough, we vigorously ran ads for “Give-
away to good home” and gave all seven of those kittens away and promptly on
the same day, at the same time, by the hands of the same surgeon, mama
kitty and all three of her kittens got remanufactured so that we couldn’t
have any more kittens in our house, and the three kittens from that litter
and the mama cat continued to live with us for many, many years. That’s my
cat story for today.
