When I was a kid the American Dream included a college education, a good job with guaranteed retirement, a beautiful wife for life, a few children who will study and work hard and succeed, a loyal dog followed by another loyal dog followed by another loyal dog followed by another loyal dog, a house to own for the family in a neighborhood of sterling repute, wonderful yearly vacations in a sturdy car made in Detroit . . .
Nowhere in the American Dream are cats ever mentioned. What the fook went so wrong with our country? I don’t even recognize my America anymore.
