Quote of the Day - In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.
Do I qualify as a pet lover? Perhaps. But not by today's standards, apparently. Consider this: A woman bought a cat with her roommate. More than a year after the roommate moved out, the two became embroiled in a custody battle. Over the cat!
The woman won a five-figure settlement. "In a historic ruling, the court applied the best-interest standard, which is usually applied only in child-custody cases," her attorney said.
"The judge was sympathetic to animal rights, but didn't want to make a big splash out of it," the attorney said. "I had a 50-page brief in that case, and the last sentence was the kicker: 'You can't treat the breaking of the leg of a table the same way as breaking the leg of a puppy.'"
Now don't get me wrong here, and I said it above, I've had pets before. But five figures? Get real.
But, it gets worse. Check out the PetCustody website. You can download a pre-nuptial agreement for your pet. No kidding.
I'm still trying to get over the map of the Roadside Pet Cemetery.
