The over under for a cat’s life span is 32. For those gambling simpletons, the over under is a bet you place on a team when you think the combined score of a game may be above the total points or below. Simply stated, it’s also referred to as desperation. It’s a lose lose situation.
I took the under, and my wife took the over. Not being a gambling man, and my wife, a former blackjack dealer, I should have known better than to go against her judgement. Our cat was purchased the day before Christmas and will most certainly live beyond his black fur and many many many Christmases.
I’ll most likely outlive my wife. It’s my punishment or burden…the cross I bear. Our black cat, Otis, will be chuckling when I place my wife in a pine box filled with coffee, cat nip and the latest version of cat food advertising a rash free diet. As a healthy reminder for your wallet, none of that expensive crap cures a damn thing.
