Mom: But I donít have cats anymore.

Me: Iím sure we just saw one of them. My cats are here too, and they need food to eat.

Mom: Oh, are you sure? I havenít seen my cats in ages.

Me: Max was just here, and Callie sleeps on you every night.

Mom: Your dad just called. Heís on his way home for lunch.

Me: Looks like he left a note.

Mom: (Reading note) I will not be home for lunch today; chicken for dinner. Oh, better defrost some chicken.

Me: Thereís defrosted chicken in the fridge already. You should leave it there. Itís still morning.

Mom: I want a cat.
