Margaret Thatcher was widely mocked for announcing "We
are a grandmother" when her son Mark's wife gave birth.
A lot of young couples seem to say "we are pregnant",
which to me seems to indicate more ignorance of biology
than is possible under the circumstances.
I wonder whether that "we" ever includes a much-loved family
pet. Eventually, "Florence, Freddie and Fido" announce the
arrival of a baby daughter". ??
I wouldn't be surprised. I am fond of my pets, but I don't
talk of them as though they were my children. Some people do -
they sign cards etc from their pet, just as they do from their
spouse and children.
I have done that, but only for people I knew would welcome it.

But do you sing to them?
"Every little breeze seems to whisper Bubba....."
Every little breeze whispers "Give Bubba cheese", Birds in the
trees twitter "Don't be a tease, Don't make him seize it, quickly
release it; Please be easy ..."
Bubba is a girl.
"Don't make zem* seize it".

She doesn't eat cheese; it makes her flatulent
But that's your decision and the breeze's, not hers, right?
I feed them dry cat food and Fancy Feast.
Both of my puddy-tats love the Fancy Feast, but they do not like the
variety containing cheese bits. They will eat it begrudgingly, but
they will always leave some. Otherwise, they lick the bowls.

*Zat, I mean that, and the voiced pronunciation of "release" can be
blamed on Maurice Chevalier, if you want to blame somebody.
I also sing, "Birds in the trees, whisper were is Bub-ba"?
Daddy loves Bubba. She talks to me.
Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen!~
