What's Your Next-Door Neighbor Story?

she does not want a cat.... but

My neighbor does not want a cat, but she is always using mine .."runner" which is quite alright but why does she not want one of her own? well, i was told that the last one tore all the drapes and just drooped dead! yet, for some reason my cat just chases mice... i see it as animal therapy.. I have offered her, her own kitten but she rather just borrow mine. they seem to like the idea , so thats okay by me. did i mention my cat is a real creep.. well just a little bit..


one day i opened the door and my little 'runner' of a cat ran into her home, being elderly i'd figure runner would do her good, but boy.. she really likes that creep.. so now he does his rounds.. two neighbors..
coming soon.. rent a creep cat! theres a hidden theme here, my cat bites but he won't harm her.. yet
