CW: Oh mom, you got us bait to catch kitties! You shouldn't have!
Me: I didn't.
Herc: Oh, is this to fatten up the neighborhood kitties so they're easier to catch?
Me: Nope. We're donating this to kitties in the shelter. We need all the good karma we can get to balance the harassment you give the neighborhood kitties.
CW: Whatever mom. We're going to go chase lizards in the backyard. Enjoy your good karma, it doesn't sound very tasty.
