The cat took the big catnap a few days before xmas.
Yesterday, we went out to a shelter to look at cats. Kittens and young cats. We didn't go to pick out a new cat and bring it home, just to look.
I think I can best explain what happened next by letting you in on this conversation between My Wife and the Pnut.
"I want on of those little kittens."
"I know honey, but those kittens are too small to bring home because your brother is still a little too rough."
"But I want one. We can leave Pumpkin Man here and take the kitten."
So . . .
This is Matilda. She's 5 months old. She practically threw herself at us. At the shelter, the kids were on her like fire ants on a wounded wildebeest, and she did nothing but purr. The decision was out of our hands, really.
Praise Jesus and Pass The Catnip

The Pman made it home too. They work together to find the guard's blind spot.
