furry baby boy

"It does that for new parents!" explained the cashier, in response to my puzzled look. The register had just spit out about eight coupons for baby goods.

I still must have had a blank look on my face. "This must be the first time you've bought baby food using your reward card," she offered.

I guess it was. I nodded, and she grinned broadly.

"Is it a boy or a girl?" She was really, genuinely excited. "A ... boy," I answered.

"Well, congrats!" She handed my receipt and handful of coupons, beaming.

I didn't have the heart to tell her I bought it for our cat, who's been fussy about his food lately, and loves this stuff. :)

Too bad the cat didn't just give birth.

"Eight babies???"

Octo-Dog? Well, I guess that would be quite a freak of nature, considering we're talking about a cat, and a boy one at that.

Bwahaha!

I was buying baby food for our sick cat, when one of my gossipier coworkers caught me in the baby food aisle.

"Oh, a baby! How exciting!"

...that's not really a situation where you can easily say, "No, actually, just a dying pet."

So *that's* why I got all those coupons when I bought baby food for our baby bearded dragon who wouldn't eat! It all makes sense now. I wonder if I'll get more when I buy more baby food next week for making dog cookies.

Well, the cashier explained that the high number of coupons was triggered by my first purchase of a new product category. I don't expect subsequent purchases will be similarly rewarded. Maybe your luck will be different. :)

Actually, that's exactly the kind of thing I got coupons for.
