hi anitai missed you and JJ blogging yesterday over at the Inkwell about cats.i've never been much of a cat person per se. having a mom who grew up on a farm, cats and dogs were "working" animals and not really pets. the cats were all barn cats - which are the kind i do like because they do keep the pest population down.as a "cityfolk" person, i don't like having a pet unless I know i can spend quality time with said pet. cats don't need that much attention but still...anyhoo, just wanted to jot a note to say i enjoyed the blogging of you and yours. i think that is so neat. i hope someday my relationship with Guppy will be similar.
oooh, do NOT like cats. Tried one once, and he bounced off the walls, jumped on my baby's head...Too nervous and independent for me!!Patti
I hear you Deb. It made sense when times were tough but there's a lot to be said for the companionship of animals, too. And with all the cat bylaws coming out these days, it's not fair to the cats to start tying them up when they're not used to it, either. Deb, you reminded me of when my eldest was a teen and we'd cruise the fabric stores together. One time, a lady stopped us from 'oohing' over some silky fabric and this lady said she wished her daughter shared her interests like mine did. I dunno. I can't promise Guppy will but if you raise him in the Light, he'll want to spend time with you no matter what. And I'll be praying for you on this wonderful journey you're embarking on, too.
Patty, I was very nervous bringing my baby home after having just one child and the cat alone for about 7 yrs. I was worried the cat would sit on the baby's face or try to lick the smell of milk off her. The cat didn't do anything like that at all. It just kept sitting on my head when she wanted me to get up and feed her. LOLBut yes, I like it when we don't have a cat in the house.
Come on, tell me what you think...
