Today we discovered a cat living in our basement. Those of you familiar with our house know about our outside entrance to the basement that is not, in any sense of the word, secure. After observing this cat run into our house, we quickly found it happily prowling around in the basement, very happy to see us. I'm not kidding- this cat loves people! So we got it out and E. has cat-proofed the door. But now this creature is prowling around the house, meowing into every open window and standing at the doors. Marco is out of his mind about all of this, especially when the kids went out to visit the cat. I could hardly get them to bed for all their worrying about it.
Now this will not do. If it were up to E and the kids, that cat would be curled up on the couch right now! But I cannot be responsible to keep one more thing alive and healthy in this world. I'm at my limit. For once, Marco and I agree about something -- no cats in this house!
