Heads or Tails - Never Say Never

Barb over at Skittles' Place has started a fun meme called Heads or Tails. Every week she calls heads or tails - HEADS we get to write or post whatever we want about her chosen topic - TAILS we have to do just what it says.

Today it's TAILS - Never Say Never (What is something you thought you'd never do or say, but now you do?)

I said I'd never have an animal in the house again. Then, after much begging by the kids, I finally agreed to let Beth bring a kitten home. I never expected to actually like this little kitten, but somehow she has managed to make me like her. She is such a sweet thing, it's hard not to. There's just something about that little furry purry kitty body. She comes and jumps in my lap and tries to get between me and my computer, and I let her. I just don't like her on the computer. I want to get up and go do something, and she comes and curls up on my lap, and I just can't put her down and go do what I was going to do. No, I have to sit there and pet her, until she decides that she is done. Then I can get on with my life. Sometimes just petting her isn't enough, and she has to get right up in my face as if to say, "Remember me? Love me." It would be very hard not to love her. She's currently curled up next to me purring her little heart out. I have to stop typing every once in a while just to pet her.

Yes, I've been replaced by a kitty. I have boxes and sacks and various little things lying around on the floor, because Tillie likes playing with them. One of her favorites is a Coke box - and empty fridge pack - though she's gotten big enough that it's a tight fit for her to get inside. She still manages, though. My furniture has snags that weren't there before, thanks to kitty claws. Still, I love her.

Now, about that litter box...

Be sure and check out other Heads or Tails participants.


  1. Wow.. she's gotten big fast! I remember when you posted about her coming home and your indecision about keeping her. It seems to have worked out quite well. :)

  2. This reminds me...I have my heads or tails post to get done. oops!

    I have an award for you :0)

  3. My 20 year old kitty died in my arms and I swore I would NEVER EVER love another kitty. I was done with kitties; it just hurt so much to let her go after a mere 20 years.

    The very next day my husband came home with a pathetic-teeny-starvling-kitty-needs-a-home story. I said, "Sure, get a kitty if you want to, but I'm not going to love her, or even pet her, or really even look at her."

    Yeah. Right. I adore her. I even got her a kitten of her own so she wouldn't be lonely. I adore her kitten as well.

  4. I LOVE the photo of her on your son's shoulder! She definitely is a beauty.
    I'm a sucker for all animals.

  5. hhhhmmmmmmmmmm I have 2 of those here...

  6. What a cute kitten! I'd find it hard not to love it too...and I'm NOT an animal person at all. :)

  7. Such a sweet looking kitten. Amazing how one can grow up fast. I'm sure she is special to everyone in your family. Thanks for sharing.


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
