Making the Decision Is a Difficult One - Dec. 16, 2010
Will we or won't we.
Knowing our household, we will.
Which means more traffic.
We're expecting 11 for Christmas supper.
Eleven with two legs.
We already have two dogs, a cat, guinea pig and two fish at home and a horse that needs loving at Woodland's Stables.
However, knowing we are closing around 5 p.m. Christmas Eve and not opening again until Dec. 27, there is still a lot of work to do at Animal Essentials during the off hours.
With grandparents at the house, Shelley and I slip outside twice a day and down to the store each Christmas Day and Boxing Day to ensure all the animals are looked after.
This year, with Tootsie Roll and Minto living at Animal Essentials and awaiting adoption, we've ventured into discussions on whether or not to bring them home with us Christmas Eve.
Well, the girls have initiated the discussion.
I never win the conversations or arguments anyway, so my two cents worth isn't worth a nickel.
Would present cat Noah be offended by the addition of two other felines for the holidays?
Probably, but tough luck is what I'm thinking is awaiting good old Noah.
It's not about being sentimental at this time of year. At least that what I tell myself. Our house is full of animals anyway, so what's two more if the kitties have to stay over?
They don't know it's Christmas, but they may get a treat to see something a little different on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
And Noah may have to share his beloved Taste of the Wild wet food.
Let the festivities begin if it all unfolds.
