Don’t Call Cats “Useless”
I learned my lesson when I was making a joke following story about a dog that alerted its parents about a fire in their home. I came on the air and said “Let’s be honest, cat’s wouldn’t do that. They’re kind of useless.” Of course, in my mind, I was picturing “Puss in Boots” and thought it was funny.
Not so, says one of our listeners who let me have it in an email. She tells us she's been a faithful listener for years and she just couldn't let my comment go. She says cats are abused and abandoned more often than dogs and she wants me to give cats some air time to make up for my failed joke.
So this goes out to her and all the cat lovers out there. It's an "Ode to Cats" (found online in a quick Google search):
