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.

good for you folks. Cats are so much easier to take care of. Enjoy him . Tull would be a good second name. LOL.

Cute, cute, cute... he looks a little like my cat Zuzu. I love the white "L" under his eye. Good luck and I'm sure he'll warm up to Rosie, most of the dogs little Jethro has encountered in his short life certainly were not nice and certainly not Havanese.

He's gorgeous, Lucile. I agree with Robbie - it was meant to be. Oh good - looking forward to the stories of Rosie and Jethro!

The L under his eye stands for Larry since he brought him home. But if little Jethro doesn't get sleepy pretty soon I haven't had much sleep because of him. Larry and Rosie slept in another room until tonight. They are asleep and Jethro keeps jumping up on the bed. I hope he doesn't land in Larry's face. lol
