|Woof before her surgery. She still had two ears.|
My daughter bought a Furreal cat
My daughter Teuntje bought her for 50 bucks, and took her home lovingly. For minutes those two were inseparable. Wherever one went, the other would follow. Then the batteries ran out.
And yes, I had told her I would buy new batteries, but I kind of forgot. And when I didn't forget, and saw the prices of batteries I exclaimed: 'Forget about it! Go and buy them yourself.'
The neglect settled in
It was then, that slowly but surely, neglect settled in. Because those batteries were indeed pricey. And my daughter would much rather buy big bags of cheese puffs, which she ate at the side of her lifeless cat. But a lifeless cat is not much fun, and I'm sad to say Woof fell into the hands of her little brother Piet.
At the time Piet was going through a veterinarian phase and decided Woof needed some surgery. To her ear, to be exact. We have yet to recover the ear.
After surgery. Without one ear...
Of course Teuntje sued Piet for malpractice, and he lost his licence to practise, but that doesn't help Woof, now does it?!
Who wants a fake cat with only one ear?
So in order to get some more money to buy more cheese puffs Teuntje wants to sell Woof to the highest bidder.
'I only want 10 dollars!' she told me.
A real bargain if you ask me. The batteries cost more.
