actual conversation at work today

Guy: “We had fastpasses for Kali River Rapids, and it broke down, and they said we could use our fastpasses for any other attraction, so…”
Me: “…”
Guy: “…”
Me: “Yeah, that’s out of my jurisdiction…that’s a completely different park…”
*He does. I silently show him the iPad that says “no selections made”
Guy: “Huh. Okay.”

(….six weeks is kinda too young to be separated, why was he so young and away from his mommy? kittens should be 12 weeks old? what kind of people had him before, sounds odd…)

Well, first there was the original owner. I know nothing about them except that they had the mama cat.

And then the first person to take him was a coworker who decided that she should get her son kittens as an Easter present. So she got him Hiccup (who she named Fitzgerald) and his sister Callie. After a week or so, she realized that #1, she hates cats, and #2, her LESS THAN A YEAR OLD SON was allergic. (Why did she get him two kittens as a present??) So she walked into the breakroom with the two kittens in a box, said “whoever wants them can have them,” put them on the table, and walked away.

Callie was claimed first, and a different coworker took Fitzgerald (and named him Oscar). Then she realized that because she had just adopted a new puppy, the puppy thought Oscar was a chew toy. She had to lock Oscar in the bathroom all day while she was at work to keep them separated. So she only had him for a few days before she was like “I heard you like cats, do you want this one?”

So yeah.

I love your cat! He’s so cute. :) Is he your only pet?

He is!! And first pet ever, actually.

(I had an ant farm that I accidentally massacred when I was five, but that’s another story…)

But I adopted Hiccup when he was about six weeks old- by then he’d already had three different homes and at least two different names. Nobody wanted to keep him. 😦

But he’s three now and he’s my little baby fluffernutter and I love him even though he sometimes pees on everything I love.

(this is him as a baby oh my god he was so cute)
