Here kitty, kitty, kitty....

'tis Thursday and time to cover another topic. This week’s topic: What pets will tell you about a date.

Growing up I had a various assortment of pets, fishes (imagine that???), cats and dogs. The missus also had a wide array of pets. Currently our household contains cats and a dog. The cats are the wife's and are constantly plotting against me (evil and manipulative little creatures they are). The dog is ours but favors who ever has food at that moment. The puppy doesn't roam the house freely; but she does have more to do with the decision making processes than I do.

As far as pets and potential dates when was "in the game" I wasn't overly concerned about the types of pets a date had. Unless it was a pet spider, I hate spiders. Now quantity is a whole different story, the people with hundreds of animals roaming inside of their homes need extensive therapy and beatings with a rubber hose and shouldn't be considered potential mates. Hell they shouldn't be allowed to breed.

This topic also reminded me of the joke:

Facts about cats:
1) Cats do what they want.
2) They rarely listen to you.
3) They're totally unpredictable.
4) They whine when they are not happy.
5) When you want to play, they want to be alone.
6) When you want to be alone, they want to play.
7) They expect you to cater to their every whim.
8) They're moody.
9) They leave hair everywhere.
10) They drive you nuts and cost an arm and a leg.

Conclusion: They're tiny little women in cheap fur coats.

Should things progress and your date wants to bring their pet into the game run.
Don't stop to think about it, just run. Run like the wind. Sure you may think that the Llamas are smart, cute and cuddly creatures; however I promise you, dating a Llama will bring nothing but heartache and they’ll make a mess of the place if the get their hooves on the keys to your pad.

Yep you guessed it I drew a blank on this one.
No formidable insight, except if you aren’t an animal person you shouldn’t date / marry an animal person.

For estrogen laden points of view: Chrissy, Silk and Sadie have posted. Kathy will probably post as soon as she finishes chasterating (new form of punishment) a LLama.

We are slowly but steadily becoming that household with far too many pets. Good thing I'm already married.

Then again ... if I wasn't married I wouldn't have the pet problem.
