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.
