I was snoozing by the fireplace last night. The children were quietly playing a board game next to me. School had been cancelled because of the snow falling all day. My sleep was disrupted by a small annoying sound…..mew….mew…mew. I choose to ignore it and return to my dream of chasing rabbits through the backyard in the summertime. I was hoping everyone else would ignore it too, but that was wishful thinking. Boy popped up and ran to the slider that leads to the deck. He carefully parts the drapes and to my great dismay…..there sits a little black kitten.
Now I will admit, said kitten looks pitiful with snow piling up around her and she is quite tiny to be out in a snowstorm, but this is MY house and there are no other animals permitted! They may visit…..Owner may dogsit…..but then they GO HOME! After Kitten has been dried, fed, and fussed over, I hear the words I’ve been dreading………”Mom…..can we keep her PLEASE!”.
Owner simply cannot resist her 3 children looking up at her with big eyes and even bigger smiles………..So, we have a cat now. I’m not happy about this at all. I will write again soon. Kitten’s disposition and impact on my family bears further scrutiny…….Peace out Pups.
