Thank you Cod for keeping our house baby-dog free. I'm sure that your joining me yesterday in a moment of kitten and dog free silence did the trick friends. We dodged the darling puppy bullet.
As many of you suggested, I tried to delete the email but I'm forbidden (ha!) from getting on the desk - maybe it's because of the winning bid I placed on e-bay for my Hot Wheel when I ran across the mouse?
Anyway I didn't make it in time, Dad saw "That Doggy in the Window" and luckily he did not ask how much it was. He agreed the dog was cute but that was all he said. Mom didn't say anything more either.
My dog-free silence is still golden.
Now on the kitten front, I still have my concerns. Of course I have to hold my purrs every time Mom heads off to Petsmart lest she sees a darling cat. She often cheats on me and comes home with foreign cat hair, but I look the other way.Go ahead get a quick snuggle if you need to, just come home alone I say.
Mom walked out onto the porch this morning and came running back in to report that not only was Mittens out there, but that he appeared to be chumming it up with a "Chubby Tabby." Now he's inviting guests over!
Mom suddenly clapped her hands together and squealed out "Maybe the Tabby is chubby with kittens?!" This next part was squealed at a decibel only a dog could hear "Maybe Mittens is going to be a father and have the kittens in the yard!" Then she looked off wistfully and said "If the universe delivered kittens into my yard, surely I would be able to keep one... or two."
Time to bow our heads again friends...
