Sometime back we had to take care of our friend's cat while they went on vacation to Rome. I was a bit apprehensive as my kids never had any pets. I am more of a dog person and have never had any cats in my life but in the end it turned out ok. The cat actually liked me would come purring and rubbing her side on my legs.
Moreover it was toilet trained and really well behaved. All I had to do was clean the litter and feed her.
My kids loved the cat and my son was fascinated but he probably thought it was a moving teddy bear and tried to hug it and the cat never came near him after that. Ultimately our friends came back and she went back with them.
It was a nice experience but would I ever keep a cat.Not right now but maybe in the future when we have a bigger house and the kids are big enough to clean the litter ;-)
Hey! Get off my table.
