Why? Because Duty told me about kitty a while back when his friend was looking to re-home him.And I was all kinda MEH on the idea – said Duty could decide (that is so NOT like me, amirite?). D decided to pass and see if someone else would like kitty as their own.
Then, friend needed a cat sitter for the 2 weeks he was gone and we got the job. At first, I couldn’t see how this would work. Too much spazziness keeping pets separate. In time, though, it smoothed out and (newly re-named) Zippy and Brogan dog are now playmates. Zippy is a mouser and has chased one around my room (that was fun!) and in a moment of ADD, put said mouse down and off it went. (Again, there’s just too much fun going on in my bedroom.)
And now we are five.
