HannahC, Pet Lover

An actual conversation with my darling daughter:
HannahC: "Daddy?"

Me, CherkyB: "Yes, Hannie?"

HannahC: "I think Mommy is going to divorce you pretty soon."

Me, CherkyB: "Oh? Why is that?"

HannahC: "Well, I just think that."

Me, CherkyB: "Is there any particular reason you think that?"

HannahC: "Well, it's just that I think Momma really really wants to have a cat, because she loves cats so much. And I really love cats, too, and she wants me to have a cat. So, since you're allergic to cats, she'll have to divorce you to get a cat."

Me, CherkyB: "Hm."

HannahC: "But Rose [the next door neighbor's cat] comes over to visit a lot, and I can be OK with that, because I'd rather have a daddy than a cat."

Me, CherkyB: "Well, that's good to hear."

HannahC: "Yeah. And I'll work on Mommy to try to get her to play with Rose more so she doesn't have to divorce you."

Me, CherkyB: "Wonderful."

HannahC: "Yeah."

as much as i miss my cats, now that i have no cats i wonder if humans are meant to co-exist with them. i breathe and sleep a lot better now that i don't have them. and one realizes just how many people you exclude from your life and home by having them. hmmm, no wonder granny has two and permanent resident scruffie (who is really cute, by the way. . .)

Heartwarming.

According to this logic, The JohnnyB might divorce me pretty soon. It's not that I am allergic to cats. Just can't stand them.

She's really showing you her problem solving skills.
The answer may lie in, "Rose"
See here everyone wins!

This girl is gonna be President someday.

Funny thing is, the original conversation went like this: "Mommy, why can't we have a cat?" "Because Daddy's allergic to cats. It's either a cat or a daddy." "Oh. I see. I'd guess I'd rather have a daddy." To which MaxieC retorted, "I'll take the cat!"

In my case if it was a choice between a cat or a man who was allergic to cats, I would go out and get a few more cats.
Scruffy at this point is semi- permanent. The weather is nice so she prefers the outside. She comes to visit every day and shows up for meals and then leaves again.

CherkyB said...

Your preference for cats is due to never having married a wonderful man like me.

Manly Lesbian said...

So True! I was unworthy!

wife said...

You weren't unworthy. You only thought you were.

Can't fold clothes and can't have a cat. You're on a slippery slope and need to stage a grand event to rebuild yourself.
