Yesterday, we had a visitor-- a cute little cat. It was a friendly little thing. Evidently, the cat belonged to somebody, as it really wanted to be around people. It followed The Mister as he was picking up leaves. I had to chuckle a few time when the cat wound around his ankles, causing him to miss-step!! I was real proud of him, he didn't kick it or anything!!!
I wanted to get some pictures of the cat, because I wanted to have some fun on Facebook with them.
As some of you may know our Cocker Spaniel, Rufus passed away last July. We had him for twelve years. I am over missing him, and have decided not to get another pet until we're no longer traveling. It is just too hard to let a dog behind for the three months, when we go to Arizona.
Anyway, back to Facebook. I posted this picture with the caption... "Rufus has been replaced", then sat back waiting for reaction!!
And reaction I got...........
- First my girlfriend called me, telling me feeding a cat milk is not good for it. How was I to know. I don't think this little dish of milk is going to do it much harm. I needed to keep it here for a little while to get some photos!!!
- Then my son called, telling me if I kept the cat, it would kill all my birds, and all the money we spend on birdseed would be wasted!!
- One friend thought it would be OK to keep the cat, as long as I trained it to catch and play with bottle caps as Rufus used to do.
- Other folks commented.... no way..... are you kidding?
Oh yes I was kidding!!! We can't keep the cat. If it doesn't find its way home, or heaven forbid, its a drop-off that continues to hang around, we'll take it to the humane society.
And that's the way it is....................
