I can hear the gasps of shock - Goog has a PET? Not just a fish, but a walking, meowing, needing to be fed everyday and have its bodily waste cleaned up PET?? Yes, I do. It's for my little guy. He LOVES animals. Like, freakishly loves them. Remember those Sarah McLaughlin commercials? He was only about a year old when they started coming out and whenever one came on he would run over and throw himself into my lap, sobbing. It took awhile to figure out what the problem was (since he couldn't talk yet). Eventually I figured it out and changed the channel quickly!
So, he's five now and we got him a kitty. Her name is Puma (we didn't name her) and she's a rescue. Litter-trained and declawed. I don't care if you think that's mean, it was already done AND she's "scratched" at my furniture a million times and we've only had her for a couple of days.
She's actually pretty sweet, but also slightly annoying. She wants to sit right behind me on the couch, on the cushion that I'm using, and rest her feet on me - not OK. And she has a LOT of things to say. I mean, all kinds of stuff to say. And she doesn't make cute little meowing noises, they're annoyed noises that are more like "WHERE IS MY FREAKING MOUSE?" than "Hi, I'm a cutie, aren't I?" Liam is completely smitten, though, and that's the important part.
