The Little Kitten Test

One day, your daughter (if you are lucky enough to have one) may bring home someone special to meet the family. You already know that there is no one good enough for her, but you need to determine how great a threat this candidate poses. Find some excuse to hand him a little kitten. If he teases it, show him off the premises. If he puts it down right away, consider crossing him off your list of preferred sons-in-law. If he instinctively takes it close to his body and holds it securely so that the kitten starts to purr, your daughter may have a keeper and you may have some additional grandchildren.
