and so we got ourselves a cat last week.
i finally gave in and got the kids a siamese kitten.
his name is groot.
he slept on our bed the first night but he pooped on it so he is officially out of the bedroom at night. he's all sweet and cute and all that cat thingy but i cannot bring myself to cuddle him the way the kids do.
but i'm glad he's here cause the kids got some responsibility in their hands. and the fighting lessened a bit. just a bit.
If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow
but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much.
