Animal House

I have always been an animal lover. When I was a kid I couldn't wait to grow up and have my own house so I could have as many as I wanted. Okay, now as an adult and a parent to 2 children by birth and 3 cats, 2 dogs and about a dozen fish. Enough is enough. I told my mom the other day, no more pets!! Even if a wayward stray happens to land on my doorstep, no more! I'll send it to the neighbor's house. The last addition "Miss Kitty" was not planned. It was bestowed upon me to be her surrogate mother at 4 weeks of age. I thought, okay I can do this, I'll take care of it for a few weeks and then find it a new home. I never considered Kay in my BIG plan and she got attached. Well, I am used to animals coming in and out of my life. I've had so many different dogs with hubs in the 15 years we've been together. It just never worked out for us, for one reason or another. Schnitzl and Ryelee better thank their lucky stars that they're still here. LOL!! Anyways, Miss Kitty is still here, oh only about 3 months later. I did try to find her a new home, but I guess no one wants a black cat. So I'm learning to live with 3 indoor cats. UGH. I'm not a fan of cleaning cat pans, thank you Jason, but it's not my job. Unless, ahem, some one forgets to take care of it. Miss Kitty has been very curious of the back door. She runs to it everytime I open it for the dogs to go out. Hmmmm.
