The Next Best Thing

We don't have a pet.

Although these pictures may convince you otherwise.

We don't.

We simply did a little entertaining of one.

I guess it's the next best thing.

And we hope our neighbors aren't bothered that we "entertained" their little man for a bit. Hospitality is an important characteristic to hone.

After enjoying his company on the front porch, we decided to take the party inside. After all, it was raining and we can't leave an interested guest out in the rain.

I believe Kate was the most enthusiastic. Hannah and I believe the enthusiasm intimidated "our friend the cat" at first but, like any fun loving living creature, he warmed up to it.

He took inventory of our house. We followed.

Kate, reigned in some of her enthusiasm to lay many a controlled hugs on his back.

We think he liked it.

We even thought he may have an email account as his first room to visit was the office.

He may just be a smart cat. Hey, he did choose to hang out with us didn't he?

The only problem, you see, is that he came when it was clean up time. And Mommy quickly saw he was a bit of a distraction as we "cleaned." And so, our friend the cat was kicked back out in the frigid, wet air where he sat, in front of our door, eagerly waiting his next visit.

We don't know when that will be.
