None Pets These Days

Bub met his buddy's cat today and told his buddy's mom, "We have none pets." He then added a caveat, ". . . except a pet ladybug."
Years ago before Bub entered the picture, we did have a pet for a couple of months. Misty Lou, my hubby's family cat, stayed with us while his parents were in Florida. Those of you who know me well know that it is/was a big deal for me to share my life and space with an animal.
But things worked out nicely for me and Misty back in 2004. Turns out we both like Filet O' Fish sandwiches from McDonalds and also resting.
A few years later, Bub got to meet Misty and make his own memories. On Bub's end (and mine), those memories are fond.
Sadly, Misty is no longer with us (she passed away a couple of years ago).
Happily, that couch is no longer with us either.

No mention of Bub's pretend pet dog Lemon...so small he can fit in his pocket? I love that he threw in the lady bug though. We are going strong on month 3 of our pet goldfish. a festival brought us together and she keeps hanging in there.

Thanks for bringing back fond memories for me!

Aw, what a sweet tale of a kitty. So no family pets in your near future?

Sadly, we still have that sofa. In fact, I'm sitting on it now. SIGH.

This picture of you with an actual SMILE on your face when in close proximity to an animal is astounding. That Misty must have been quite a cat. I'm still holding out hope that there is a dog or something in your future somewhere. But maybe you're really a cat person. As I get older, I'm starting to accept that might be okay. Not for me, but for other people.
