Never

We are never getting a cat. And not for the reasons you might think, or that I might have originally mentioned. I'm watching two kittens for a friend of mine. She's either finding new homes for the kittens, or a new place for her to live. Anyway, I thought it would be kind of fun for the kids since you know how I feel about animals belonging to me. It's a disaster. The kittens are fine and not a hassle at all, but boy, it's sure traumatic for Kember. They are just kittens so they startle at loud noises, and don't really like it when Kember tries to hold them. She has to chase them and it just scares them. Kember, right now, is crying hysterically for some reason. The kitty won't let her hold it, it ran away, it isn't ours...I believe all of those reason have caused quite a few tears today. She doesn't understand that she just needs to leave it alone and eventually it will warm up to her. Kember got a horsey toy for one of the cats to play with and the cat smelled it but wasn't interested and Kember started crying again. Lots of crying today...whole bunches. If this is what happens if we ever got a cat, never...not worth it at all.

I hate cats! There are about 5 or 6 hanging around our house right now for some reason and we are afraid they chickens are the reason. If they kill any of our chickens...ooooh! Now dogs are a different story.

get a puppy. They won't run away and hide...they will cause the kids to run away and hide....knock them down to chew on their pony tails, chew up their shoes, chew up their toys, sigh:)
