flop show

i know i promised i wouldnt mention the cats again, but im going through kitty withdrawal since they left a while ago, and you can consider this a way to get the feeling out of my system.

in a short span of time i got attached to the little kitty. tia.

vc's plan worked. the covert motive in agreeing to cat baby sit was to warm me up to the idea of having a pet. it has to be said that i was never averse to the idea, just a little sceptical. because: 1) we live in an apartment on the 3rd floor 2) we like to take off on random trips here and there 3) im alone a lot of the time and would like someone to share the responsibility of looking after it with 4) i wasnt sure if i was up to that kind of full time responsibility.

the weekend with the kitties has made me realize that i could manage it if i wanted to. in other words, if i figure out points 1), 2) and 3), 4) is not really too much of a problem.

so in a moment of severe kitty-withdrawal-syndrome, i proposed to vc that we get a pup or even a kitten. i was so sure he'd jump at the idea. after all, he is the one that has actually just been waiting for me to say the word, and has himself been on the verge of just getting a pet.

but his response was this: "im having second thoughts about that now."


turns out 2 days of feeding the cats, giving them all the attention when they demanded it, having the furball nestled in various parts of his body and also rescuing them three times over when they jumped out of he balcony and onto the ledge below (funnily they managed to go down there but couldnt come up on their own! haha!) has made him realize the effort and responsibility it is to actually have a pet of your own.

so much for his plan! while it worked on me, it seems to have had quite the opposite effect on him. and unexpectedly so.

we're back to square one it seems. its time for me to go plot now, and device a way to reverse his feelings. and this, i promise, is the last you'll hear from me about the kitties.

but not before you take one last look at the cute little thing:
