One too many, again!
I am a pet lover, so is my family. We have had rabbits, ducks, dogs, cats, hamsters, parakeets, turtles, fish…. Yikes… and all in town.
I have one dog at this time, she’s a mutt, a mix of different cattle dogs, Queensland, Aussie & McNabb. Bane of cats, the neighbor’s dog and any birds that decide to eat from the bird-feeder in the backyard. She also thinks she is a soccer player, great dog all around. Did I mention she is afraid of everything? She acts tough but she’s not. But, let me get where I’m going with this…
We now have four…. I was happy with two… they were both stray kittens found over where I work, one even rode home in the engine compartment of the family van, after something like that you just have to keep her. I named the both for Star Trek. One after Data’s cat SPOT and the other I named TRIBBLE. What can I say, I’m a geek. So we are set. Two cats and a dog that chases them, perfect…. till one day my brave dog is in the backyard and starts barking which becomes a panicked mass of sound, it sounded like she was in pain and dying. I run out of the house thinking I’m going to find her bleeding to death or something like that. Nope… She has spotted a cat in our yard, and it wouldn’t run away so it scared her. This cat was half dead, half starved really, I tried to shoo it away, just the look of it scared me. I finally broke down and fed it, had my brother get the dog kennel out and I put it in there, I wanted to keep it away from my cats and I wanted to make sure it didn’t kill me in my sleep, like I said she scared me. My father was to take the cat to the vet’s office and drop her off. Bye-bye, see you later, two cats are enough! I get home from work and surprise guess who is at the house. By then the cat was dubbed “Lucky”, I didn’t want it, but everyone else did. Even the dog likes her, okay I like her too now. Did I say like? I love her now, she is my cat. But three cats are to many! Four cats is nutz! But guess what, My brother has dragged this cat home. “Pickles”, I didn’t want her, still don’t, but I was over ruled. I swear, the next person that brings home a stray, is going to the vets with the cat, and staying there with the cat.
Hopefully she stops hating the dog, the other cats.
Anybody want a cat? We have one to many, again,
