Hi
I opened the screen door yesterday and my cat got out and has been missing since then so I was wondering if you are not to busy you could make a poster for me. It has to be A4 and I will photocopy it and put it around my suburb this afternoon.

This is the only photo of her I have she answers to the name Missy and is black and white and about 8 months old. missing on Harper street and my phone number.
Thanks Shan.

Dear Shannon,
That is shocking news. Luckily I was sitting down when I read your email and not half way up a ladder or tree. How are you holding up? I am surprised you managed to attend work at all what with thinking about Missy out there cold, frightened and alone… possibly lying on the side of the road, her back legs squashed by a vehicle, calling out ”Shannon, where are you?”
Although I have two clients expecting completed work this afternoon, I will, of course, drop everything and do whatever it takes to facilitate the speedy return of Missy.
Regards, David.

Dear Shannon,
I never said I don’t like cats. Once, having been invited to a party, I went clothes shopping beforehand and bought a pair of expensive G-Star boots. They were two sizes too small but I wanted them so badly I figured I could just wear them without socks and cut my toenails very short. As the party was only a few blocks from my place, I decided to walk. After the first block, I lost all feeling in my feet. Arriving at the party, I stumbled into a guy named Steven, spilling Malibu & coke onto his white Wham ‘Choose Life’ t-shirt, and he punched me. An hour or so after the incident, Steven sat down in a chair already occupied by a cat. The surprised cat clawed and snarled causing Steven to leap out of the chair, slip on a rug and strike his forehead onto the corner of a speaker; resulting in a two inch open gash. In its shock, the cat also defecated, leaving Steven with a wet brown stain down the back of his beige cargo pants. I liked that cat.
Attached poster as requested.
Regards, David.

    Nu kommer jag säkert låta grining och väldigt o-piratig, men med tanke på att David Thorne inte har sina grejer på nån slags cc-licens utan faktiskt ©-markerat sin sida så tycker jag inte att det är sjyst att kopiera in allt rakt av. Du kunde nöjt dig med citaträtten/fair use. Eller åtminstone hedrat den ideella upphovrätten och länkat till var du hittade det hela… ;)

    Jag hittade inte det här ursprungligen från hans hemsida dock, utan via nån katt-sajt. Det stod inte vem som först gjort det, annars hade jag givetvis länkat dit. Jag antog att upphovsmannen försvunnit på vägen. Men nu vet jag var det kommer ifrån, tack för länken (som tydligen är samma jag kopierade bilderna från när jag googlade). :)
