Happiness was mine…
My loved ones were all content and healthy, I lived in a beautiful home, and I had just married an incredible man.
Little did I know…
I could be even happier! Moreover, my happiness teachers would be furry!
The cats were my idea…
My husband has every reason to loathe cats.
- They make his eyes run.
- His throat gets scratchy whenever they’re too close.
- If he pets one, his nose itches and worse.
Wonderfulness that he is, he agreed to adopt some. He even quickly fell in love with our felines!
Back then, while all animals charmed me, but…
I was an avowed cat lover. Cats are gorgeous, and better yet, they require minimal attention.
Dogs, I thought, were cute, but didn’t merit all the bother that owning one comes with. They need to be walked daily. They chew valuables and slobber. If you don’t train them, they’ll jump passersby and bark way too much. Some are biters!
In my experience, cats are terrific!!! They’re lovely, low-maintenance, and fun! Sure, one out of a million is neurotic, but those are in the minority.
My husband loves dogs best!
Given that he had agreed to our two cats, perhaps it was only right to get a dog.
