What have i done?!


raegan just stands at the window and says "itty"
i think the bowl with milk may have sealed the deal


It's amazing the things your kids can get you to do!! Trey spent the day yesterday along with Avery and Ethan and a couple of neighbor kids making friends with a stray cat that has been hanging around the neighborhood for quite some time...actually i think he lived under our house for awhile. He got the cat to warm up to him. They have a house made for him and everything- i'll have to get a picture of that sometime, it's quite the little contraption.

I am not an animal lover, don't get me wrong-the thought of anything happening to an animal makes me sad...i just don't want them touching me or getting hair on anything that might come into my house- i have good reason for this being i have two children highly allergic to cat hair! So being that i have two boys that are all over this cat i just want to strip them down at the door and put their clothes straight in the washer...which is pretty much what i did yesterday at the end of the day. Tell me i'm not the only mom that get's complete satisfaction out of tucking into bed some freshly bathed children! :)

I woke up at 7 am this morning hearing the back door open...before rushing to call 911 (i'll have to share the story if i haven't of my sister and i calling 911 on our husbands trying to surprise us) i came out to check and there is Trey and Ethan with some turkey, some balogna out feeding the cat his breakfast. So to not have kitty germ hands digging in my sandwich meat i took the kids to the store and bought some cat food...and a food dish...ohh i have dug myself a hole i don't think i can climb out of...and he has been affectionately named "goldie"...my kids are so origional. Avery does not touch the cat and we have a strict hand washing, brushing off rule going...

That is so funny! It is amazing how animals just have a way of becoming "family members". That's how we got our kitty! (We almost got another one, but someone else took him.) I hope your girls don't get too alergic to the cat =)

The same thing happened to me last year, remember? I called the animal shelter and had them come pick it up finally. And I LOVE cats so I can't believe I did it. :)

It's official-that cat is going nowhere!! :) Once there's food around they take forever to leave, if ever. At least with it being spring you may get some days where you can keep the hair/germs out of the house easier.

Elisa, I think you were the one that finally gave in to feeding our stray, Tabby, the first little bit under the poly-cart. You have done it once you feed them:)Fourteen yrs. later.....
