Cat Scratch Fever

I'm going to let you in on a little family secret. It might be hard for you to believe that it's true. But, I assure you, it is 100% accurate. This is my Daddy and he and I share something that no-one else in the family does. The secret is...
are not
We never have been. The cats and dogs in our life have always been closer to My Mom or My Brother. The animals we have had all seem to know...."I don't think Jana or Daddy are crazy about us." That is what makes these pictures
Apparently that memo has'nt been recieved by the cats in this house. And when Daddy sits down in the evening to read, they come to him like the pied-piper. They just sit there with him and watch him read and they don't get up until he does. And the truth is....I laugh. I really laugh. I was laughing when I took the pictures.I'm laughing right now. Only because I know how I feel when the cats come surround me like that. I feel like....ewww...gross....go somewhere else!
But, even as I type this I am sitting on my bed and there are not one, not two but, three....yes, three cats sitting on my bed just staring me down. I'll admit that even six months ago, that wouldn't have happened.Maybe the tides are beginning to change.
Maybe we ARE becoming pet people.
Maybe we are the ones who haven't gotten the memo yet.


  1. this is tooo funny. i am not a cat person at all.....

  2. You must be! At least partly, otherwise you'd be shooing them off faster!

  3. Cute! I only like one of our cats. And, we only have cats because Scott hates dogs. Passionately. I can get a dog when he dies. Hopefully by then I'll be too old to want to take care of a dog.
