Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for June 25, 1999
Nate: But why can't we get a dog? Dad: Nate, we've talked about this a million times! It's too expensive! Dad: Plus, having a dog is a huge responsibility! It can be very time-consuming! Dad: I'd consider a cat before I would a dog. Cats are so much easier to take care of. Nate: I don't like where this conversation is going. Ellen: Ohh! Yes! A cat! can we get a cat?
