So, was just on the phone with my mum and she was telling me that Sparky and Artic Cat (yes, my stepdad named his cat after a fucking snowmobile) have learned to answer the phone using the speakerphone button. They also know how to check the messages and hang up the phone. So my mum has no clue how many political phone calls she's received because the cats have been answering them.
