If my dead kitty could speak, what one sentence would she blurt out?
"Okay, I get it, you want me to sit in this hat so you can take a cute kitty picture. Whatever."
And if I could ask her a question:
"Remember when I came into the family room and it was pretty clear that the gerbil, which had been alive moments before, was now dead -- did you happen to notice how the cover got knocked off his cage while you were lying there on the couch? Just asking. Sure, you can get back to me on that."
