If you give a kid a kitten...


If you give a kid a kitten, she’ll want to take it on a walk
If you take the kitten on a walk, she’ll want to make a run for it.
If she makes a run for it, she’ll return with kittens in her tummy.
If you give the other kid a kitten, her sister will want one too.
Her sister will take the kitten on a walk, and he’ll want to make a run for it.
When he makes a run for it, the sister will cry for weeks…


…and weeks
…and weeks.

If the parent posts some pictures, the kitten will be found.
When sister holds her kitten, she’ll announce that her kitten’s stripes have changed. A lot.
If sister buys a new collar at Petco, she’ll run into another kitten being adopted.

When sister recognizes the kitten as her long lost love, the parent will blush. And lie.

True story.

Too funny. Love the "If she makes a run for it, she'll return with kittens in her tummy."

Cute story, even though the parent had to lie.
