Despite Raimie's requests, many many many many times to own a pet cat; his requests were always turned down. It's not that we're mean but owning a pet is by no means a small responsibility. Plus, with us being out of home most of the time, how is owning a pet be feasible? Another problem, Mommy hates stray hairs. Humans or animals. *bluek*
He used to have a pet turtle. The Daddy and Son both wanted to own one. Turned out, after the initial excitement of getting it, it was Mommy who gotta clean the tank, feed and clean the turtle and got attached to it! When it got a tad too big, Daddy broached the idea of releasing the turtle to a pond nearby and Mommy was having none of it. She loved that turtle. Poor thing died though, after a couple of years with us. We buried it on top of the hill next to our apartment. :(
Son still loves cat and usually loves to play with the strays both at our home and at his granddad's. Also any random strays he found anywhere.
Mommy, while still refusing to let him have a cat; let him buy cat food. She told him to put some in a small bottle that he can carry around to make it easier for him to feed any strays.
Last week, while waiting for Mommy who was holed up somewhere with her friends; he spent his time feeding a few cats. He enjoyed it a LOT!
My, my. Looking at the cat food selection - cats sure have a charmed life. Mommy has not had a meal of salmon in ages! HAHAHA
p.s. can dogs eat cat food? Mommy can't afford to buy two separate food for stray cats & dogs so she's wondering whether the animals can share food.
