The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

The little bundle of fluff above is a 5 week old kitten my wife found starving in the streets of Shanghai last Friday.

Apparently he was so hungry, he was literally screaming … so Jill picked him up, took him to the vet for a check-up and then brought him home where he is currently fast asleep in our spare bathroom – quarantined from Rosie for a week so we can be sure he’s OK – but otherwise happy, healthy and full of food.

[The vet gave him a clean bill of health, the quarantine is just standard proceedure when bringing strays into a home that already has pets]

Whilst we would like to keep him, it might be a bit difficult, so first of all we’d like to know if anyone in Shanghai is interested in giving him a good home.

He’s a lovely little sod and already litter trained, however as he is smaller than a can of coke and weighs just 400 grammes, we have been told we should wait a few weeks before handing him over so he can get a little bigger and stronger.

So, if you can provide a loving home for a loving little ball of fluff, let me know … we will provide all the things you need as well as the cost to have him microchipped and neutered when he is old enough [which very important & totally humane].

Thanks a lot.

youre going to listen to what your man says? where the fuck were you when i was single? tell your planner husband owning this cat is the result of a detailed brand proposition exercise or some other planning shit nonsense and hell soon say yes. planners are slaves to a process.

Comment by andy@cynic

I’m ahead of you Andy, I already have a graph showing the infeasability of cat ownership… you cheeky bastard!

I don’t know whether to be more offended as me or as a planner.

I bet your approach to buying pets is to choose 500 when you only need one. A bit like your strategy with wives 😉

Comment by Rob Mortimer

yeah, so whats your fucking point?

Adopted any strays recently??

Comment by Rob Mortimer

only by the hour.

I don’t want to come over all Dadsylike – especially as it’s none of my business and no one seems to have found it a bit dodgy – but can we not be so free to take the piss out of Andy’s marital background because I know what the poor bastard went through and I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.

Trust me, there’s lots of other things that are available for him to be humiliated by, but very dark times in his life shouldn’t be one of them.

he has a kitten for 3 days and look at the fucker, mr daddy.

Comment by andy@cynic

I didn’t see that one coming! Perhaps Andy should adopt it, he’d be quiet and passive within the week!

Comment by Rob Mortimer

You’d have thought Jill would have learned her lesson about befriending whiny friendless males.

Comment by John

yeah, but this thing has hair so she didnt think it would lead to the same outcome.
