A man goes on a 2 month business trip to Europe and leaves his cat with his brother. Three days before his return he calls his brother.

Brother 1: So how is my cat doing?

Brother 2: He's Dead

Brother 1: He's Dead! What do you mean He's Dead! I loved that cat couldn't you think of a nicer way to tell me! I'm leaving in 3 days you could of broke me the news easier. When I called before I left, you could of told me we found him on the roof and we're having trouble getting him down. Then when I called you from the airport you could of told me the Fire Department was there and scared him off the roof and the cat died when it hit the ground.

Brother 2: I'm sorry ... you're right...that was insensitive I won't let it happen again.

Brother 1: Alright .. Alright, forget about it. Anyway, how's Mom doing?

Brother 2: She's on the roof and we're having trouble getting her down.
