Jimmy Carter Killed his Sister-in-law’s Cat?
November 9, 2007 4 Comments
From a recently-discovered letter Jimmy Carter sent to his sister-in-law.
Lamentably, I killed your cat while trying just to sting it. It was crouched, as usual, under one of our bird feeders & I fired from some distance with bird shot. It may ease your grief somewhat to know that the cat was buried properly with a prayer & that I’ll be glad to get you another of your choice.
I called & came by your house several times. We will be in the Dominican Republic until Thursday. I’ll see you then.
I got my twelve gauge sawed off.
I got my porch light turned off.
I’m ’bout to bust some shots off.
I’m ’bout to dust a kitty off.
Uhn. Cat killer.
