On the roof

A man goes on a trip and has his brother watch his beloved cat while he’s away.

He calls his brother when he lands and asks about the cat his brother says “oh the cat died.”

Devastated the man says “well next time couldn’t you lighten the blow a bit?”

His brother asks how

He says “well maybe the first day I call you could say the cat got on the roof. Then the second day you could say like the fire fighters couldn’t get him down. And then on the third day you could tell me.”

The brother says “okay I’ll keep that in mind.”

The man asks “so how’s grandma?”

“She’s on the roof”
