I Love Lucy
My kids have been wanting a pet for a looooong time. My husband and I kept putting them off. We had a cat, Shadow, before my daughter was born. Shadow got really jealous of Rebecca and started peeing on everything. She would even sit right in front of me and pee. We had her tested up and down but there was nothing wrong with her physically. We stuck it out with her but once a cat starts peeing on things they keep on doing it and it's really hard to get rid of cat urine smell. Fast forward 4 years later and my son was born. She started exhibiting the same behaviors so we had to get rid of her. We just couldn't deal with the cat urine on everything again. So we put off getting another pet.
Then, in the last year, my husband started making noises about wanting a pet. I kept ignoring him. He stepped up the pressure and I finally caved. I went off with my girlfriends to a stamping event and my husband and kids went to pick out a cat at the humane society. My kids were thrilled! She was a foster cat and was supposed to be good with kids. She really can't handle the energy of my boys so she hisses and bites at them a lot. They still love her though. This is a page of my daughter and our cat Lucy. She's been with us since May. She's a moody cat but we still love her.
