Caroline, I'll be interested to hear how your cat gets along, please keep us informed. I've always slept with a mattress cover, and while I've never had a cat or dog have an accident in bed, sometimes they do throw up. <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ />
One of the guys I work with, who is one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet and is always doing good deeds for others, tells this story about a good deed that went very wrong. Here is his story:
Our neighbor's beloved cat had been missing for several days. I'm coming home from work, and as I turn into our neighborhood, there is Snuffy lying dead in the street. I rush home and get a plastic bag and go back and scoop up the cat and take it to our neighbor so that his little girls won't have to see their pet lying dead in the street. The father thanks me profusely and tells me how much he appreciates my thoughtfulness.
The next day, my doorbell rings and it's my neighbor standing on my front porch. He tells me they buried Snuffy, had a little ceremony, said a prayer, while all the time his little girls are weeping at the loss of their beloved cat. “There was only one hitch,” he says. “Snuffy turned up on our doorstep this morning. You should have heard me try to explain to my little girls who it was we buried last evening.” <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />
