I'm not really sure how we have lucked out so far, but we have the most awesome animals known to man. Today I will speak specifically about our cat.
Our cat...who we lovingly have not named!!! We got her for my birthday 4 years ago. (before emily was even a thought) yet somehow her and Emily are best friends. Okay well maybe the cat doesn't consider her a friend but at least tolerates the heck out of her. Here's an example:
Yes, that is exactly what it looks like. Emily-jumping on the trampoline-with the cat. How many people know of any animal that would put up with jumping on the trampoline, with a 3 year old. I think most 3 year olds would lose an eye!
Conclusion: We won't own another cat after her!
