The Truth is Out


This morning I was visiting Mom in the bathroom while she & Dad were getting ready for work, and Dad mentioned how handsome I am. "Yes, of course", I thought to myself, nodding in silent agreement.

But then Mom said, "He's one of the handsomest harlequin* boys I know".

"Wait a minute!", I thought. "What does she mean 'One of the handsomest...?' Am I not the only harlequin boy she knows?!"

Turns out - NOT!! Mom proceeded to explain to Dad how many other kitties she knew when she was growing up.

Friends, as I sat there listening I began to feel betrayed. There were others before me...and yes, some of them were harlequins!

When she saw the look on my face, she tried to make me feel better by saying that most of them were girl kitties and that she had to go all the way back, at least a squillion years ago, to when she was a teenager to remember a harlequin boy. Nice try Mom, but once the the truth is out, you can't take it back!!

) It's hard to accept, knowing I'm not her first harlequin boy.

* A "harlequin" cat is mostly white with several large patches of any other color.

It always sucks to find out that there were others. What makes it worse is when they compare you to cats who came before. Like, don;t they get it? We're the most awesome, not the other way around! Sheesh!

Oh cool, so that would make Rumblepurr a harlequin? He thinks he's pretty handsome, but I think you give him a run for his money (but don't tell him that!)
