The kids at school have been talking about a stray kitten that's been hanging around. MY kids found it on Thursday and my DD came into the room I work in, nearly in tears b/c it was so cute and...could she please, please, please come home with me at lunch and see if it was still in the bush by the church where they left it this morning....yadayadayada. I can't blame her - she comes by this 'soft-heart-for-animals' quite naturally I'm afraid (sorry mom, for the lizards and kittens and goats and all that). So, we looked, but couldn't find it.
Then yesterday as I was walking home from school, there was a crowd of kids at the fence looking at this kitten again as it wandered in and out of the parked cars on the street. So, I picked it up and took it home of course. Now, Trev's allergic (so he says) so I knew it wasn't there to stay, but OH MAN.....I really wish it could have. By the end of the night we'd found it a good farm home but in the in-between time, the kids had a great evening of playing with a kitten and Mica introduced it to her hedgehog. We have some video that Mica's hoping will net her a sweet $10,000 prize on AFV.
