The PERFECT idea!

Oh, come on. Are you really that surprised?

Yes, it's true. I have found a new pet passion: wedge head, or modern, Siamese cats.

I went to my gals dinner group last night and came home with the most brilliant plan! Hubs and I will get two Siamese kittens. I know, I know, we're not cat people. At all. But the thing is, Siamese cats aren't like cats! At all! They're like dogs trapped in cat bodies. And I looooooooove them!

S, who hosted this week's dinner, has two. And over the course of the evening, I understood why. They're fantastic. I'm telling you, this idea is GOLD. It's like all the benefits of getting a dog without actually getting one! And hence, avoiding all the negatives!

Yes, Hubs is very wary and very tired right now, but I almost have him convinced! Now I'm just searching for a breeder within driving distance! I think I've found one...

I can't see a siamese cat without thinking of Lady and the Tramp- "We are siamese if you please... we are siamese if you don't please." Oh, just me??
Anyways, I hope Hubs goes for it!! Sometimes a girl just needs a cat, right?

I have the PERFECT cat for you. I mean, depending on where you live and all. I could bring her to you!

Interested? I wrote about her on my blog. Some insane stupid person must not have wanted her anymore, so she is trying to adopt me.

This is no good, very bad idea. Are you sure? Cats can be the devil incarnate, no matter their breed. I think you need to find a sweetie-pie puppy. :)

(Coming from a non-cat person.)

Good luck with whatever you decide though. ;)

You won't have to get up in the morning and let the cat out! DEFINITE plus. Especially in the winter!

hmmmm...my sister had a Siamese cat, it WAS evil incarnate. Did you consider your hostess had hers on Vicodin or Valium? Anyway, I'm not sure you aren't a cat person.

I give you this:

I loved my modern Siamese. It was heart breaking. Not like a dog at all (she's be very insulted and make sure that you knew it) ... very much her own creature. I forewarn you: they need A LOT of attention.

PS-mine was adopted by a very nice family.

Good luck! My house just wouldn't feel like a home without a pet! I understand your need for one!

What about an older dog from a shelter...potty trained and docile? And you'd be saving it from the shelter? That's what we did with our dog. I can totally relate to your desire for a pet, and it's so hard to decide what is right for you! Hope you find the perfect pet soon.

Take care!

That IS a good looking cat...and you're totally right, what I really want is my little baby back, and not the ribs kind. Thank god I'm aware of it, or I'd probably end up with a cat!
