I Am Going…

To clobber an old woman in the head! I am so sick of hearing my neighbor across the street whine about my cat being in her yard. I understand, to a certain degree. And she does work hard on her garden, I won’t deny that. She just can’t understand why we can’t keep our cat in the house 24/7. We let him outside every once in a while as I refuse to put a litter box in the house again. We got rid of it about a month before Gunner was in the picture and it’s not coming back. Funny thing is, Garfield isn’t the only cat allowed to wander around the neighborhood. I’ve seen two cats in her yard before, a gray cat as well as a black and white cat – and they loitered for a good while. So why must I get rid of my cat? It’s apparently not going to solve her problems! My husband, Eric, told her that we were doing what we could, ie. Doing our best to keep an eye on him when we do let him outside which is difficult with an infant, and trying to figure out a temporary place for him until we move outside the city (I use the term city very loosely – We aren’t throwing our cat into traffic). Eric even told her that we do not have any room in our house for a litter box, which we don’t because we live in a tiny 800 square foot home. Gunner’s room was the former litter box room, and we just don’t have the room anymore. He also said that we wouldn’t put a litter box in the house because of the baby to which she responded, “What about my flowers? I’m sick and old and work hard on my garden” Lady, compared to my little man, I could care less about your stupid flowers (no offense to flowers which are lovely). We are doing what we can, end of story.

Speaking of my little man, we had a rough day today. He just refused to nap and was a total fussbudget all day long! I hope tomorrow is a better day…

Before I log off for the day, I would like to plug a very plug-worthy photography site whose owner also happens to be from the wonderful state of Louisiana like yours truly 🙂 Elizabeth of http://eyeingmemories.blogspot.com/ has such stunning work! Check out her awesome site and photography!
