Lindsay and Keith had shared twenty-five years of marriage, and in that time Lindsay had never asked for much, but Keith always knew she really wanted a diamond necklace.
Quietly slipping out of bed on the morning of their anniversary, he took the beautiful diamond necklace he had bought her and wrapped it around the family cat’s neck. Then he jumped back in bed and waited.
The alarm went off, and that was the signal for the cat to leap up onto the bed and remind his mistress by patting her gently on the cheek that it was time to get up.
Lindsay woke slowly and with her eyes closed began to affectionately pet the cat. She stopped at the cat’s neck, and with her eyes still half closed felt the diamond necklace carefully. She opened her eyes fully to see what she was truly touching, and as she laughed with delight over his wonderful surprise, her husband exclaimed, “Happy anniversary … I love you!”
