Clearly it has been a while since I have posted a picture of the love of my life, Isabella. So here is a picture to satisfy everyone's needs. Please look at her and admire. It's ok, I will wait for you.
*hums tune to self while waiting*
OK... now this leads me to something that happened a few weeks ago and pissed me off. A lot. While having brunch with some friends, the discussion turned to our cats. All three women in the room had cats, of various types and ages. It goes without saying that none of us has children, so our feline children become the next best conversation substitute. In the midst of this discussion, both of my friends (this label will be reviewed) turned on me to point out the ways in which I was a "bad mother", and further, went on to say that they "worry if I should have kids". They implied that Isabella is spoilt and misbehaves, and that I indulge her and am the worst of all kitty parents.
I can't tell you how pissed off I was. I was so pissed off, I couldn't even respond!
Apparently the fact that their cats destroy their furniture, attack their legs, are fussy eaters, sloth around with no thought for playing and make a break for it the moment the door opens - is all irrelevant apparently.
So tell me - is there a relationship between cat behaviour and parenting skills? Is there any reason why people feel the need to say such thing to a friend? Should I have just told them all to royally fuck themselves?
Your thoughts appreciated.
