As I said in my last post, a dog just wasn't for us. But we've been having the kids nag us for months for a pet. Not that they haven't had pets before.
We've had baby chicks (which became egg laying chickens) and we've had rabbits. Neither of which ever sparked much companionship as far as the kids were concerned, although my little one did love her chickens. That reminds me, I must include one of my favourite photos of her from when she was a baby, the first time we had chicks with her.
Anyway, we finally caved and decided to give them one more pet, one which we figured we could handle. I must say that she has turned out to be a lovely kitten. I never imagined a cat could be so affectionate and loving as this one is turning out to be. She constantly wants attention and cuddles and someone to play with.
