We're off to another week!

It's early Monday morning and already we have our first unusual request of the week. Someone has written into complain about his wife. I have expressed that it is important to try and resolve it peaceably within the family, but it seems that he has already complained to the town council about her. He said this has been going on for some time. Only later did he mention that they are about to get a divorce.

Sad to say this is not the first case of a husband complaining about his wife (though we've never yet had the converse). It's a sad day when you can't tell the person you're married to about the fact that you are having problems with their cats. There are of course many possibilities, the first being that the person has tried to tell his or her spouse several times to no avail. Alternatively, the spouse with the cats got so fed up that the other spouse went to complain to everyone else without trying to solve it first that he or she now refuses to talk to them. If communication is so bad, I have to say it's not a wonder the marriage may have broken down.

it may not even be about the cats. perhaps the cats are used to manifest a much deeper problem between the two people.

Yes - some people do use the cats as a means of getting back at each other.
