An Abnormally Still Cat

Last week, I decided to get a cat. I wanted a sweet-natured cat and decided to name it Marky.

Unfortunately, I know barely anything about cat breeds, so I decided to just check out the nearest pet stores in case I got lucky. However, Lady Luck evaded me constantly.

Eventually, after trawling many pet shops, my friend Polly informed me about a cat in the shelter she worked in that sounded perfect for me.

She sent me the details of the cat the next day. But there was something there that really confused me. I rang Polly up and exclaimed, "Are you having a laugh? Why would I want an oversized cat statue instead of a real cat?"

Polly was very puzzled as to what I was talking about. After a few minutes of confusion, she laughed and explained to me the misunderstanding.

What had happened?



Answer

Polly sent me the details saying that Marky was a Sphynx, as in a hairless breed of cat. But she misspelt it Sphinx, as in the oversized Egyptian statue. After a tiring day trawling pet stores and my little knowledge about cat breeds, I came to assume that it was a joke.

Now, Marky has just come to my apartment and there will be more on him soon!

It does- and you have to rub sunblock on it so it won't singe off the miniscule amount of fur it's actually got.
