I had to stop at the campus bookstore today. Mom was with me. She had a little conversation with the poor student working the register, who presented her with this:
I did point out that it says, "pet" rather than "dog," but Mom noted that it does not say "collar," let alone "kitty." And then she explained to the poor student that "normal kitties do not walk on leashes!" When I tried to object that we had a cat that stole my earrings and dropped them into her water dish, which didn't seem all that normal to me, all she said was, "on your poor little head."
