My husband said no more pets, BUT
After Josie Wales had to be put down, My DH said please promise me you won't ever get another pet. I promised. Well, last night as I was sitting up in my bed reading, he came up the stairs with something wrapped in his coat, saying, "God hates me." He had gone to feed the steers and a kitten was crying in the woods and when DH went to look for it, the kitten ran to him and started purring. It was love at first sight. It had a tie arount it neck that was to tight--like the ones the police use for handcuffs. Obviously it had escaped from the shelter a mile or so away from here. He appears to be about 3 months old, no sign of testicles yet, but no fleas, and terribly hungry. DH wants to name im Jethro, but I am having a hard time with that. Rosie is beside herself. The kitten is afraid of her and hisses and Rosie barks. But I believe that the playing will begin pretty soon. I reminded DH of the time I came home to turned over flower pots and did he remember the tomato peelings and the roll of paper towels. He doesn't care, he love Jethro Gibbs. The little fellow is litter box trained, but no one around here is missing a kitten. Interestingly my Vet joked about leaving all the kittens he could in my yard. I am the only one that paid over $1000 for treatment of a stray cat. I swear, I am not going to give this cat anything buy it's vacs and neuter. then he is on his own. You all remind me if he gets sick.
Becky, I wonder if a havanese puppy showed up here would DH fall in love with it also. We may have to confer.
