The Festival of Lights in Spanish Fork.
Oh, there was one other little thing that helped make it such a perfect evening.
What? Why would you get a cat? You don't have the best track record with furry pets. Aren't you busy enough taking care of all those kids?
Why, yes. And how considerate of you to notice.
Listen, the horrid, nasty, disgusting truth is... we've had a little mouse problem lately. Gross.
I do not take responsibility for this infestation, since we've had major road construction near our neighborhood and I hear that other neighbors may be experiencing similar trauma. But still, I believe a cat will help.
Not really true. The cat could be hideous as long as it kept mice out of my house.
But we do have some (many) exceedingly happy children. Our trip to Spanish Fork was multi-purpose because we got the kitten from a house just south of Spanish Fork. I'd found it on KSL Classifieds for a reasonable price and the kitty was already spayed. We were going to look at it and pay for it and then Abe was going to drive down on Christmas Eve day to get it so we could surprise the kids for Christmas. It was so far out of the way and we were having such a nice time together that we just decided to surprise them a week early.
A funny thing about the cat-- it has a serious case of gas. Stinky cat gas. I was not aware this was a common problem among felines. Anyone have any recommendations?
She's been quite a good little kitty so far-- very playful and quite cuddly with the kids.
She and I haven't really made friends yet. She did this to me as I carried her to the car when we first got her.
