    Cats are people too.
    This is true, and I'm the best cat mother EVUR. I would cut my manager's ankles off and run out the door if my husband called me at work and said my cat was puking. My cat NEEDS me.

    Forget cell phones. Telepathic homing devices that allow you to hone in on your kitty's rumbling bowels so that you can respond with the utmost speed and efficiency are much more practical - and ESSENTIAL!

    My cat gets lonely when I'm at work. My employer should be more family friendly and pay me to sit at home with my cat.

    And to stay on topic: Then I wouldn't have to use my phone at work to get on Facebook and share pictures of my cat.

    Of course I'd do anything necessary to get to my kids, spouse, and mom if any were sick or hurt enough. Don't have any cats, but have dogs, and I hear you. Spouse is allergic to cats...eyeroll.But redhead is right. Those rare instances, and God forbid them, are not what anyone is talking about.

    And, no, I'm sorry. You don't need to be in constant contact with your children. Unless they are in the ICU or something there is no need for any mother to be in constant text communication with them. We all grew up without our moms having cell phones and, somehow, through some miracle we all lived to tell about it.
    For some of us, it was a miracle that we lived to tell about it.

    Some of us did have bad parenting . . . . had nada to do with cell phones though.

    If my cat were puking, my cat would take care of it . . . no need for me to rush home.

    A) I cannot believe how long this got in such a short amount of time.
    B) If only you could teach common sense and sound judgement!

    If spouse is not good at emergencies, why not sit down and teach spouse how to handle emergencies? It's pretty important, in my opinion.

    ABC and call 911.
    ^This. I don't really know of anyone who is developmentally intact who could be excused for not being able to learn this.
