Someday we'll get a dog

We have been worried about the cat's sanity as summer comes upon us. The first really nice day we had around here had all of us outside for basically the whole thing.
Our poor cat was so needy that night, we began to wonder how he will handle the summer when we are outside considerably more.
Mom sent down the harnesses and leashes for her cats (who are now dead and gone, thus no longer using them.... not that they ever did anyway!) so we can take him outside with us during the summer.
Ashley has been dying to get a chance to put Jack on the leash and take him for a walk.
Today I put the harness on and she clipped on the leash. She had all these really big dreams of proudly walking her cat round town. What happened was a very different picture.
Jack sat there. He plopped his little furry behind down and refused to move.

She gave gentle tugs on his leash.
"c'mon Jack"
"Jack, come on"
"Jack, Come On"
through gritted teeth she then told him, "Jack, you are embarrassing me".
I couldn't stop laughing but I did keep it quiet. This led to tears running down my cheeks.

He is not amused.

  1. Oh, man, that is too funny! When Ashley talks like she's a grown up, it just makes me laugh. I love that you had tears keeping it in! I'm sure he'll like it, when it keeps him with the family!


Tell me something!
