I just finished listening to our President's Farewell Address and ya'll I am still crying. I know that not everything he did was perfect, but it has been so good to know that for the last 8 years we've had a President who sought out the Lord for guidance in running our Country. I just can't imagine all the pressures he's had since 9/11. Oh what a wonderful speech! It sounds so good to hear the best things about our Country for a change.
Anyway, enough tears. A couple of people have asked me why in the world I don't heart my cats. In response to that, let me just give you a little email conversation between my sweet friend, A, from KY and me:
Okay, so I just read your blog and I am sad that you don’t heart your cats. Are they still indoor cats? Why don’t you heart them? What do they do that gets on your nerves? Imagine if you had a dog that you had to walk all the time and make arrangements for when you were out of town? I think that’s why I never want a dog. I am sure at some point, though, Hadley will want a puppy. Of course, we do have four outdoor cats. We did have six, but one died and another one disappeared.
Girl, the list is endless. They are indoor cats and they are wretched. One of them will not pee in the litter box. She will only pee on a puppy pee pad that sits NEXT TO THE LITTER BOX! I should buy stock in the pee pad company because I have spent a fortune on them. We have to change it out in the morning and when we get home from work and sometimes again before going to bed. The other one throws up every other minute AND pees on the rug in my bathroom. So, now I have another litter box in front of my nice big tub where I think she poops about a hundred times a day. AND THEN, she jumps up on my sink trailing her nasty poop litter and gets it everywhere. I feel like I’m living in filth. So, we do have to board them every time we go out of town because, really, who is going to come to my house and change out pee pads twice a day, scoop out litter boxes, and clean up cat vomit. Since you lost two, can I bring them to you???
Okay, now I understand why you don’t heart them. And, no, I do not want your peeing, vomiting cats! But, thanks! That is pure craziness! I have never even heard of a pee pad.
There you go - nuff said about that - for now anyway.
I know you've all probably seen this commerical a hundred times (if you're a TV junky like me) but it makes me laugh every single time!
