Dumb question of the day: Pets or no?
I couldn’t think of a blessed thing to post today, so I asked my husband to give me an idea or a question.
His instant reply: “To be or not to be a pet-owner? That is the question.”
I’ll give you a little background on why that particular topic should leap to his mind. We’ve had a lot of critters through the years: eight cats (not all at the same time, thank goodness), one dog, one horse, two parakeets, and two cockatiels. Then there were the 4-H pigs and the chickens. And rabbits.
Now are kids are grown. We’ve nearly reached empty-nester status, and our menagerie has shrunk to two cats, eight years old. Once they kick the bucket, Hubby would love to be a pet-free home. No more fur floating through the air. No more houseplants made raggedy by kitty-teeth. No more worries about who’ll remember to feed them if we go out of town. Not to mention all the money we’d save on catfood.
Sounds good, huh? Except a house without at least one pet doesn’t quite seem alive to me.
So there it is, the question of the day.
