Did the cat make the Cattle thing, or was it the other way around ...
Not only was my great uncle a town mayor and a developer of housing, he also raised cattle. Uncle Bill was not a complicated man. One never would have guessed that his son's prestigious career was an inherited trait. Uncle Bill looked like your typical farmer but had a whole lot more going on. I remember as a little girl visiting the cows as he set out their huge bales of hay on that green place near the lake. I also remember thinking as a little girl that I wanted to go and live with the cows in the fresh air of the pretty grassy fields.
Now, as an adult with children, I have become a rebel to Uncle Bill's causes. I have sworn off meat. After feeding it to my children for a while, I finally began to realize that the disturbing thoughts were only growing worse. I could not bring myself to justify killing an animal to eat anymore. It was only making me fatter than I want to be anyway. Now I have to lose weight.
We do have one cat left in the family -- our last. I have sworn off pets as well. Lots of things occur to one after becoming a parent and teaching one's own children right from wrong. I do not know why I have been so ignorant for so long. The cat is also too fat, even though I keep making his portions smaller. He just doesn't have much of a life. Not much to do indoors where he chooses to stay of his own free will, safe from the wild animals out there in the unknown.
Now one question remains ... Did we eat meat because of the cat, or is the cat the result of eating meat.

|This article is hilarious! It piqued my curiousity to the extent I wanted to respond, in writing, all the ways I found it so amusing ... before realizing the proverbial cat had my tongue! Until I retrieve it, please accept my congratulations for another job, exceptionally well done.|
