My chin hurts.

Sometimes kittens are fun.

Other times they think your skirt is a toy, and that biting your feet is a good thing. Then when you bend over in the dark bedroom to extricate the kitten from your skirt, you bash your chin on the metal frame of your laundry hamper. Then you cry because it hurts and you've only had about four hours of sleep because the kitten kept bringing you her toy with the bells on it while you were trying to fall asleep, and when you shut her in another room all you could hear was the kitten crying like someone was killing her.


Companies should let people take leave when they get kittens. They could call it 'cat leave'.

When Spike was a spawnkitten he was a holy terror. One morning I woke up and he had ripped apart my bag of loose green tea and strewn it all around my kitchen. When I let him sleep in my room, he would pounce on me sporadically throughout the night. I'm sorry you hurt your chin- Jenn makes me put teatree oil on my scrapes (which I have a lot of). Maybe that might help?

When I am ruler of the Earth, I will get cat leave onto the agenda.

Jenn said...

I love the idea of cat leave! Well, I think it would be Kitten Leave though.

We definitely support kitty leave.

*much nodding of Bears*

And also Bear leave, not becoo we keep you up at night, but becoo wouldn't you rather stay home with a new Bear than go to work?

OK Bye
