We have three cats. There were four, but one passed away when S was an infant. I used to call myself a crazy cat lady. I used to have cats beds in every room, cat huts on my dresser, scratch boxes and toys scattered everywhere. Used to.
I hadn’t realized it before but kids really take over everything. My friend Elsie said that babies are parasites but she was meaning when they were gestating. I guess after birth it’s less parasitical & more symbiotic, but only for the humans in the family. I’m pretty sure the cats aren’t overflowing with warm fuzzies for the small human interlopers.
