Our Very Own Juno

Maybe you'll recall my mentioning our cat, Peanut, before ..... If not, this might refresh your memory:

Right before we left for vacation, my children noticed, well, how shall I say it delicately........ a change in Peanut's underside (let's just say they nick-named her "Nips" -- 6 to be exact). That was our first clue that our sweet little girl had been around the block, quite literally. The kids are convinced that 6 kittens are on the way -- and I didn't have it in me to explain that, if we follow their logic, every pregnant woman on earth would be birthing twins.....

Anyhoo, they have already started talk of each "adopting" one until they're old enough to give away. Evan scrambled to be the first to claim the name: Zelda, the Mighty Warrior, for his kitten. Somehow I doubt his sisters would fight him for that right....

That reminds me of when I was a kid and my dad brought home a new puppy. I was in about 1st grade, and wanted to name her "Lucky Charm" or "Leprechaun" ...... Well, my two older brothers out-voted me and named her (no joke) "Lobo, King of the Wolf Pack". Does anyone else see a pattern here with boys naming pets?!

Before we left for vacation she resembled this:




When we got home 2 weeks later:
I'm no doctor, but I'm pretty sure we need to attend Lamaze SOON. BREATHE, Kitty, BREATHE !!!! Hee Hee Hooooooooo

Are you expecting child support from the father?

You've got to be kidding me. Is that real? It SO looks doctored. I think your kids may be right about six!

That is a really clever post title! Oh that poor cat. AND you were right about Mr. Microphone!
