I have had a lot of serious posts, so I thought I’d post on a lighter subject that gives me a lot of pleasure IRL - my pets. We have 3 adorable cats, all female. They love themselves and add drama to our (childless) household: For example, fighting it out for my spot on the sofa with Gabrielle. Sometimes she sits in my spot and I have to boot her out. I swear a couple times it looked like she stuck her tongue out at me.
I don’t know what we’d do without them. Occasionally Gabrielle sits on the laptop when I’m using it such as when I am browsing CAF. I don’t go to ebay so I’m not worried about ‘accidentally’ putting in a bid for a 50,000 antique car, or something like that. I find having pets really raises my quality of life. They are not members of the family on a par with children but they are important in the household
