Boudreaux and the Cat

A wealthy art collector was walking through New Iberia when he noticed a mangy black-and-white cat lapping milk from a saucer in the doorway of a meat market. He did a double take when he noticed what the cat was drinking from.  Knowing the saucer was quite antique and very valuable, he walked casually into the store and offered to buy the black-and-white cat for two dollars.

Boudreaux replied, "You sure you want to buy dat old cat?"


"The collector said, 'Please, I need a hungry cat around my house to catch mice. Look, I'll pay you twenty dollars for it right now." 

Boudreaux smiled and said, "SOLD," and took the man's money.

Now the collector made his play. "Look,' he said, 'for that twenty dollars I wonder if you could throw in that old saucer. He's obviously used to drinking from it anyway. What do you say?"

Boudreaux smiled and replied, "Hell no! That's my lucky saucer! Since that artist convention is in town, I done sold SIX cats."

Angel, you always post some great stories and are a talented writer. I have noticed before that you don't have any links to share your stories on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or other social media. Do you have any objection to me (or anyone else) sharing your stories via some other network?

And btw, what are you teaching?

Maybe Boudreaux thinks he's smart, but I reckon a cat is worth 20 bucks, especially if you can train it to scratch your hairy back. He's also lucky no one stole the saucer.
