New Take on an Old Excuse

Like many housecats I’ve met, my cats have quirks. Admiral Dufus demolishes cardboard boxes and chews paper, while General Nusiance licks plastic bags.  I don’t know why they do this.  Perhaps they lack certain minerals. Perhaps their tongues like the taste or texture. Perhaps they’re studying how humans react to the behavior of feline companions.

While Admiral’s tendency to shred papers has caused some inconvenience, General’s fondness for licking things has not been an issue.  Until now.

I never told a teacher “the dog ate my homework,” but as of this morning I have to explain to my cancer clinical trial that my log of dosing times for my trial drug may be hard to read because …

 “My cat licked my journal.”
