The veterinary surgeon had been busy all day. It was one of those days when he had to tend to one emergency after the another. If it wasn’t someone’s cat that had fleas, it was someone’s hamster that had a rash. It was mind numbing and he couldn’t wait to close up his surgery for the day.
When he finally got home from seeing to all the sick animals, his wife was waiting for him.
To his surprise and delight, his wife was wearing a black mini-dress with a low cut top. There was a bottle of wine in a cooler on the table, which was all set for a cozy dinner by candle light.
The vet breathed a sigh of relief, knowing that this was going to be his lucky night and just what he needed after his stressful day.
After an amazing dinner, the couple had a few more drinks then went happily up to bed.
At about 2am, the phone rang.
“Is this the vet?” asked an elderly lady’s voice.
“Yes, it is”, the vet replied, “Is this an emergency?”
“Well, sort of” the elderly lady said. “There is a whole bunch of cats up on the roof making a terrible noise mating and I can’t get to sleep. What can I do to get them to stop?”
The vet patiently replied, “Open the window and tell them they are wanted on the phone”.
“Really?” said the elderly lady, “Will that stop them?”
“It ought to” the vet said, “it sure stopped me!”
