I’ve been entertaining the thought of getting a cat. I have yet to convince Beau this is a good idea, and him being a seemingly typical feline-phobic man, this may take some time.
But the other day I was browsing trademe, on the prowl for some rimu timber, when I came across the following listing:
“Ooh there’s a kitten on trademe, and it’s free”, I exclaimed.
“Uh-huh”, was the particularly unenthusiastic response from Beau.
“Oh, but it’s got a missing eye”, I said, as I re-read the listing.
“Hm, well it is free”, replies Beau. “You have to expect some defects”.
I excitedly click on the link. To my dismay the kitten in the listing was in fact not missing a brown eye, but rather missing from a home.
Still, it explains how they knew the missing eye was brown I guess.
