‘Twins fashion fighting felines’ by Beth Long

Ruth and Rebecca Brown have 4,386 cats. The identical twins from the Maple Glen section of Upper Dublin Township have fashioned thousands of tiny, detailed cats from clay. They’re not just ordinary kitties, either. They are cats in Confederate clothing. Union garb too, for that matter.
Ah, the startling by-products of home schooling. I’ve always been afraid of older women with lots of cats, but now I’ll extend that to younger ones too.

Also, as an anticipatory defense against those who would email me blind for slandering home schooling or cats, you should know that a) I’m scared of cats and believe they would ‘make me dead’ if they only knew how, and b) home schooling is for pussies.
