We Are Not Getting a Cat

Among the 500 million reasons Drew and I are never getting a cat is the fact that our neighbor has, well, about 500 million cats.  They run through our yard, sleep on our car hoods, fight in our bushes… and delight our children, who love to watch them out the window.

You’d think that would be good enough, but nooooooooo.  They want their own cat.  I made the mistake of pulling up a bunch of cat pictures on a Google image search, and Sutton promptly selected the one she thinks should be our pet.  This one:

I’ll admit, if it stayed that cute forever, I might let her talk me into getting that kitten.

“Which one do you want, Bennett?” she had to know.  Bennett scanned the dozens of choices on screen and made his selection:

“OK,” I said.  “Let’s get that one.”

I’m hoping that cures Sutton of her cat fancy.
