instead, you're getting a treat.
if you've read my blog for any amount of time, you might be familiar with the fact that i don't want kids. and neither does awesome husband. since my mother's death, i think some of us (pointed look towards awesome husband) have thought maybe they'd want to change their mind. some of us may have been feeling like they need to share some extra love. some of us might have been feeling like they wanted something of their own to love.
so awesome husband and i were running some errands today. he wanted to pick up s dumbbell set, i wanted to get chipotle before i start my new
like most weekends, they had a local rescue operation set up there adopting cats out. we always stop and look, cooing at the teensy kittens and trying to coax the untrusting adults out of the corners of cages. we argue about getting an orange cat, or a special needs cat, or a polydactyl cat. and we walk away to complete our shopping.
like most weekends, we stopped and looked at the beautiful long haired siblings who were white with black splotches and white with grey splotches. we poked at the little long haired tabby who was hiding under her mat. we called to the teenaged orange cat who steadfastly ignored us.
then awesome husband got to the last cage. he called me over. there were two tiny tabbys in this cage, one with lighter tan markings and one that almost looked like he was wearing a mask. we looked at them. we spoke to the foster mom. awesome husband wanted to hold one. i liked the lighter colored one, but awesome husband pointed to the one with the mask-like markings. they put him in my arms and he melted onto my chest.
then i handed the kitten to awesome husband. now, he has always loved animals but never had cats growing up. i tried to turn him into a cat person with my kittehs. he always said he didn't want another cat, three was enough, hell TWO was enough for him. but as i handed this kitten to awesome husband, and he looked down at this cat, well...
suddenly, he thought three cats was NOT enough.

|that's awesome husband's hand on the kitteh. he weighs like four pounds.|
i think i may have finally turned him into a cat person.
