We have discussed this before.
We had a cat- we had a puppy- we had to give the puppy back to my son- he missed him. The cat- Malibu- decided she wanted to be a bitch- first she refused to come out of HER bathroom unless she could see the bottom of her feed bowl- then she decided she hated us both and ran outside to live- despite the fact she has been de-clawed. And she is surviving very nicely. She hunts- and catches stuff- and then hangs around my daughters house, my mums house, AND our house for all the table scraps.
We have fish(altho it seems not for long) and that's MORE than enough for me right now......I would LOVE to have another pet- but I REALLY REALLY want to get our own house before we get one. I ideally want a kitten and a puppy.
So we agreed- no more pets until we get our own Place.
We went to my son's home today for a visit. Had a nice long visit and chat....and when we started to leave my hubby spied a mama cat and her long haired Ginger kitten under the porch. Awwwwwwww- look at it...........
We are now the proud owners of the Ginger colored kitten who we have named "Padme'.
Yes- as in Star Wars.
And I AM glad we took her home.
I absolutely REFUSE to get a puppy before we move into our own place, tho- and thats THAT-
I MEAN it.
I REALLY do.
That's me putting my foot down........I don't care how many sad puppy doggy eyed looks I get- from the puppy OR the husband.
Well, maybe it wouldn't hurt to just LOOK at them.........
