Do you remember mom's friend Blondie? And how Blondie had an old cat that went to the Bridge? And how her other cat was sad and crying about it? Well, Blondie contacted the VA Siamese Rescue Center, found a cat she wanted, and filled out all the paperwork. They contacted mom, who wrote a recommendation. Now, mom mentioned that the old cat had gone to the Bridge. Because of this, they called Blondie back and asked her for the names and dates and history of all the cats Blondie has had. She has had three, (I think). They were all indoor cats.
Well, after that, they made Blondie get this $45.00 Blood Test for a disease that indoor cats do NOT get, because they are indoors. All the time! Except when they are in the PTU going to and from the vets. Now, mom thought this was sort of dumb, but she didn't say anything.
Tonight, Blondie emailed mom the following. Mom is pretty dumbstruck. Mom actually wants to email the gentleman in the letter and tell him he is a big fat DOPE. What do you think? (Lost as in went to the Bridge)

Can you imagine what they would say to Auntie, if she had wanted to adopt a cat after both Jasmine and Gizzy had gone to the Bridge. Is mom out in left field? Or is this normal. Mom needs to know, because she is pretty steamed.
