Take Me Home

Oh boy.

The neighbor's cat had kittens about 2 weeks ago and now my girls want one, one for each of them. 

First off, we already have 2 cats (14 yrs old) and 1 huge chocolate lab (silly Benny, 4 1/2 yrs old).  Our house is small and I feel we're at capacity with animals.  At least my nerves are.  Whose the one who really takes care of these animals anyway?  Yeah, you know it, me.

But the thing is, I've seen these kittens and, well... they're kittens!  They're frickin' adorable!!!  I want them too!

No.  Stop it Ann.  Shake it off.

I'm doing the best I can to smile when I hear the pleas of "I'll take care of them" and "You won't have to do anything!" and the classic "You won't even know they're here!!"  Ahem.  Yes.  Yes I will.  I will know that kittens are here because while you're at school, dear begging children, I will be at home training them to use their litter box, keeping them from clawing the furniture, and probably keeping them away from Benny because he thinks they are his new toys.

He does love his Care Bears

And also holding them and loving them because they are fluffy, adorable kittens!

ARGH!!!!  What am I doing??? 

Enough.   I've got to just let this pass.  Wish me luck.

  1. Young kittens = pee everywhere.
    Enough said.

  2. I haven't known a kitten to pee everywhere...oops, I'm not helping!! I can't say much because we just adopted an adorable stray.

    Breathe and stay strong!

  3. So hard to resist the cuteness of kitties. SO hard. And I am an enabler so please don't ask me what to do! Unless you want to end up with two furry additions to your family! :)

  4. Oh, good luck! I am the WORST person to comment on this! I have had a total of 4 dogs, 8 birds, 4 hamsters, 4 fire-bellied toads, 2 tree frogs, 2 fancy mice THAT HAD BABIES so the total went up to 10, a koi pond and countless fish. Oh..and a gecko. And...my husband is allergic to animals. =) Oh..and a guinea pig. Now we (only) have 3 dogs (poodles so the allergies aren't bad), 7 finch, 2 tree frogs and a koi pond with 7 koi. I would definitely cave if kittens were in my hands!

  5. Dear Ann,
    Please stop by my blog. There's a beautiful blogger award waiting for you there. Hugs, Brenda

  6. AWWWWWWWWWWWWW it's so tempting... I have a 14yrold cat too.

  7. Take it from me... who said yes one (or 4) too many times to cute adorable puppy and kitten faces.... DON'T do it. Promises made about taking care of them are promises broken. I have loved each and everyone of our pets, but they are so much work!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I hope you enjoyed your visit.
