Meow!

I'm not a pet person. However, I can be persuaded to be a "giver" and the girl has been dreaming about cats since she could tell me her dreams. She draws them, asks for stuffed cats, plastic cats, writes about cats, and searches out cats.

So I am considering getting her a cat. I know, I know, it's insane. One more thing to add to my overflowing plate. But it seems to be the time. The furniture is old and can't possibly get ruined, the carpets are clean, and she is old enough to put a scoop of cat food in a dish.

I cringe thinking that my clothing is going to become hair covered and that everything may smell of cat. And the litter box... oh yuck.

But to see the girl's face light up, well it might, just might be worth it.

Ted doesn't like cats. Tell your kid that!

Vg - I haven't really committed - but I did go to a rescue vet and see a sweet full sized cat. I decided a kitten is too much effort.

tedelicious - she cried when I told her.

There's a really dirty comment in here about what I'D like for Christmas, involving slang for "cat"...

...but I'm feeling tasteful today, so I'll let it slide.

I appreciate your restraint! (sort of)

No problem.

Merry Christmas.

(my gift to you)

Cat's are cute. I had to wait until I left home to get one.

I would suggest a short haired one - fur balls are just so disgusting.
