If Only I Had Revisited This Prior To Sharing At A Dinner Party...

When I was about 5 my aunt gave me a kitten against my parents wishes. Soon after they gave it away. When I asked what happened to her my mom told me that she got married and moved in with her husband.
20 years later I was at dinner with my boyfriend's friends, most of whom I was meeting for the first time. Everyone was sharing "first pet" stories. When my turn came around, I stated that my first pet was a cat names Katie, but she ended up getting married and moving in with her husband. Immediately after the words escaped my lips, I thought "hmmm... that doesn't sound right". The whole table was looking back at me in silence.
