another Vern story...enjoy
I ran into an old friend from high school. We shared a few pleasantries. Her Children were grown and out of the house, my children are grown and out of the house. Cindy went on to tell me that it was just her and Cliff, and their cat Tabby. Surprised I told her yes that is how it is at our house. We have vern...then the conversation turned a bit ugly.
Yes its just us and Tabby, and he has brought such joy to our lives in our older age...Cindy claimed.
Wow its the same at our house. only ours is vern. we love him.
Yes Tabby is a round 23 pounds Cindy said with a chuckle.
Vern is a sleek 21 pounds, very healthy, robust 4 yr old. I stand a bit straighter with this statement.
Tabs as they prefer to call him is a beautiful short haired grey and white cat. Cindy exclaimed.
Vern is a gorgeous flaming orange long haired cat. His beautiful mane flows in the wind as he prances around the house...I am glad Vern wasnt a short haired grey and white cat, that reminds me of a little old man with a butch hair cut, I replied while raising my left eyebrow...But I know you still love Tubs ah I mean Tabs.
Cindy went on to explain how she had rescued Tubby from the underpending of a mobile home. (just as I suspected... Tubby is nothing but trailer trash). I would bet that old tubbys mom slept with every Tom in the neighbor hood. I also suspected that Tubbos mom was not very educated either. I mean who in the world would choose the underbelly of a trailer to give birth...
I quietly told Cindy of Verns tragic beginnings. Of how his mom had died heroicly saving Vern from a fire. His mom had choosen a customize Yacht building company to give birth. I preceeded to tell Cindy how I believe that Verns wonderful mother must have know her days were short and wanted Vern to enjoy the finer things in life...I pushed my left shoulder forward as to say...Top that, you witch. I also told that I had explained it to Vern, told him to be proud of his mom, she didnt abandon him, she died loving him. My eyebrows are starting to arch now.
Cindys phone rang giving her a much welcome reprieve...
That was the groomer Tabs is ready and I need to be home when he arrives. He hates the pet carrier so we get a car service to pick him up and deliver him. She said with dead eyes.
Oh I know exactly how you feel, Vern hates it too. But we have the groomer come to the house. He gets motion sickness you know. But I understand that the more Common cats never have a problem.....
My phone jingled in my pocket. Excuse me I must answer the phone.
I need to run too, that was Verns soccer coach, its is first practice tonight, he gets to meet his other teammates.
we believe it is good for Vern to socialize with a group of his own age so we signed him up for a under six soccer team.
I am planning on being team mom if they need one. I thought it would be a good example to set for Vern, you know Community service makes you well rounded (I didnt tell cindy but I personally think they let the teams moms player play more and thats why I did it).
It was wonderfully seeing you. Maybe we can do lunch sometimes (in your dreams) and tell el tubbo, Vern said meow.....
