The Cat Owner

Photo by: Fandango

As Gerry walked with his neighbor Harry near the tree line, they shared stories. Most of them related to the difficulties of running ranches. When they arrived at a gnarled tree Gerry sighed and said, “Ah geez.”

“What’s wrong?”

“It’s Petunia again.”

“Your giant mutant cat?”

“Yep. She done it again.”

“Oh,” said Henry. “Peeing on the trees and killing them?”

“Naw. She uses the sand dunes nearby as a litterbox.”

“Trying to swat airplanes out of the sky again?”

“Naw. All the local pilots know about her. Nowadays, they fly too high to reach over the ranch.”

“Tryin’ to eat your cattle?”

“Nope. She’s scared of the super-high electric fence.”

“So what’s she done now?”

Gerry pointed at the balled up tree. “I just hate cleanin’ up her hair balls.”

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    I enjoyed this, but I sure hope that my two cats do not grow into one of these super sized beasts.

  4. LOL. Just the giant mutant cat was a funny vision without all the things that she could do or was prevented from doing. Loved it.

    I hope he has a big enough fence to keep out the tom cats when they come calling. Loved the way you built up to the punchline.

    As the cat scales up, so do the cat-related problems, makes total sense. I’m just glad I don’t have to clean out that litter box!
