She told me that cats don't speak English, so you need to speak "cat" to make them mind you. She then proceeded to demonstrate how to speak cat.

Yep, she's showering herself and cats at the same time. She also mentioned that her goldfish had died and I asked if she gave it a proper flushing. She doesn't flush her goldfish because they can fake it (never seen a goldfish floating belly-up willingly) and they'll drown if you flush them. Yes, the FISH will drown in the toilet. Anyway, I couldn't help myself and asked what she did with her deceased goldfish. Her answer, and I am not making any of this up, is she puts her dead goldfish down the GARBAGE DISPOSAL!!!

    I won the Academy Award that day for keeping a straight face during that conversation. Ugh.
