.. conversation today about this photo of a cat at the humane society in yesterday’s paper…

Girl (my mom): “Look at this cat. It looks a little uppidy. Doesn’t it look a little uppidy?”

Me: “Hmmmm?”

Girl:  “It shouldn’t look uppidy. It doesn’t even have a home.”

… ah, family…  :-)    Somebody please tell me if this sweet cat gets adopted.
