When the man came to install LifeAlert, he asked if we had any pets.
“A cat,” I said. He wrote it down.
“What’s its name?” I assumed in case of fire (they installed their own smoke alarms and CO detectors), they’d want to coax the cat out from under the bed and save her life.
“Sudoku, ” I said. “But she doesn’t answer to it. We just call her Kitty.”
“We’ll write down ‘Kitty,'” he said.
I thought of telling him she doesn’t answer to ‘Kitty,’ either.
