Tim: LifeAlert and Sudoku

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.

  2. Hank doesn’t answer to his name either, but he does respond to tone of voice. Wonder how Life Alert would handle that. Of course, Hank wouldn’t run off–maybe hide in his hamster hut. Give “Kitty” a pat for me.

    I did. She was busy eating so she wasn’t very responsive but I’m sure she was grateful.
