A pet cat in Thailand was missing for three days before coming back in arrears.
According to Times Now News, the tabby cat found a shop with some particularly pleasing fish. Aunty May, owner of the shop, indulged the cat with three mackerel.
Lest the cat’s owner assume these fish were on the house, Aunty May attached the “check” to the animal’s neck.
“Your cat kept eyeing mackerels at my stall, so I gave her three,” the hand-written placard reads. It was addressed, “Aunty May from alley no.3.”
Images of the mackerel mooch were posted to Facebook with the caption, “3 days gone and came back with debts. Isn’t that beautiful?”
“Really cute cat. I can see how he gets fish!” commented Agnes Sturtevant.
“Hilarious!!! Great your cat came home safely,” wrote Cathy Delano-Sunshine.
“Love your smart cat! I hope my dog would be as smart!!” wrote Diane Manaugh Griffith.
“Would love to follow his daily routine. LOL.” wrote Mary Patterson.
As they say, there’s no such thing as a free lunch. Should this cat be allowed to cavort and connive after coming home with an unpaid bill like this?
And the fish…the fish! It can’t be inexpensive to keep a shop stocked with fresh fish every day in these challenging times.
Aunty May can’t be expected to feed every cat that stops to smell her stock, can she? Let’s hope this shrewd Tabby cat doesn’t tell his friends.
What would you do if you were in the owners’ shoes?
