Unable to contain my excitement about Charlie, I did a silly thing and told my sister - not the killer heelz sister, the other one!
Her reply was this:
"..don't you think you had enough of heartache? Why get another one? You can love and get attached to animals as you have known 6 times over so why give yourself more grief? Don't you like to travel before you grow really old? See the world, do other activities apart from your lovely creative writing or just give up your Sunday job rather than work 7 days a week because keeping a beloved pet could drain you emotionally, financially and psychologically. Besides you have already given more than 20 years to loving cats..."
S'okey she doesn't read my blog. Well she didn't last I checked!!
My point is this: Families. Dontcha just love em?!?!?!
p.s. I'm sure she means well!
