Cat Meets Fish

Standard

My son recently got a fish for a pet – three guppy fish to be exact.  We decided it was no use actually naming them until we saw how our cat, Lulubelle, was going to embrace their existence and residence in our her house. Thus, a formal introduction was arranged.

Lulubelle paced around and around the bowl.

Sniffed the contents.

Looked wide eyed at the moving objects inside.

Batted at the glass.

Tested the water with a paw.

It was touch and go there for a while.

Would the poor defenseless fish actually survive our heartless, survival-of-the fittest cat?

And then it happened.

Lulubelle stuck her head into the bowl and…

… drank the water.

I am thinking, in the end, she decided it was too much work for such a small prize.

Oh and probably, she was thirsty.

Besides, Take Out Delivery is just so much more convenient.

Todays Best Moment: Monday 1/30

Standard

There I was, wrestling with “The Beast” (aka: Full Kitchen Trash Bag), out-manned, out-matched and out-maneuvered as contents began to spill out onto the floor.  “Help Needed!”, I yelled to no one in particular.  Both of my boys came bounding into the kitchen to my aide.  Together, we tamed “The Beast”.  They’ve got my back.  I’m not alone.  It feels good.

Today’s Best Moment – Monday 1/16

Standard

Watching my boys learn how to make Macaroni and Cheese. 

Seriously, it was poetry in motion. I laughed, I cried, I cleaned up burnt pasta water all over the stove. Actually,  the best part of the moment may have been seeing them growing up?… Learning to do for themselves? …No, it was when I realized  I won’t have to do it anymore.  Laundry, anyone?
