As it so often does, the Urban Dictionary has described a catfisher perfectly:
Would we be happier if we were richer? That is the question I’m asking while my kids and I appear to have various degrees of depression. Our COVID-19 situation is common. Under employment coupled with boredom and uncertainty are keeping us down.
We were dog people without a dog. Gilda, our beloved international dog of mystery, died almost two years ago. No one and nothing could ever replace what she meant to us. Still, the kids and I knew something was missing. We needed the buffer pets provide in families. The calming influence that soothes difficulties between strong personalities all working toward their own goals while living together.
