A Cat for Christmas
updated: Jan 08, 2011, 10:00 AM
My sister got me a cat for Christmas. I hate cats. I am also allergic to cats. They make my eyes swell and my nose run. And they are mean and kill things.
Last year, she got me a fondue pot, and I was able to get rid of it at my company office party, where we have a white elephant gift exchange.
I can't keep the cat. The trouble is, it is not a kitten that my sister got me. It is a gigantic yellow cat with a very bad disposition, a really loud voice, and long claws. It has already ruined the side of my couch, and I don't like the way it's looking at my dachshund.
My sister's birthday is next week. Would it be wrong to re-gift a cat?
Dear Stuffed Up,
I don't think so.
