Judging by my title, I think the Simpsons quote email has gone on too long. Or maybe not long enough. Anyway, I’m going to try and get more posts done in June, but since it’s only 3 days until the end of the month, I’m going to have to post things without pictures and without a point. Enjoy.
I moved into the place I live in … 5 years ago this July 1st. Happy Anniversary! When I first moved in it was shortly after having lost my poor puppy to illness; I wasn’t ready to own another animal. So when the ad said “no pets” I didn’t really care. But when I had my interview, I wanted to see how serious the landlord actually was, so I asked “The ad says no pets… how do you feel about a cat?” He said “You have a cat?” and I said “No, but I was thinking I might want to get one, one day”. He assured me that no furry animal would be living in the house and gave me a list of reasons. I accepted this by giving him my damage deposit and saying “I’ll take it!”.
Stompy and hubby were always on the landlord to let them get a dog. When I moved in they approached me on the subject. I told them my situation and explained that I might be ready for an animal “some time soon”. They started asking me to talk to the landlord and bug him to see if he would let me get a cat or dog. I knew his stance (partially because he told me at the interview, but also because he would complain to me about them constantly bugging him about getting a dog) so naturally, I never bugged him about it.
So Stompy moved out and new people moved in. Every so often I hear a yappy little dog upstairs barking its fool head off. It’s not often, so I know that the dog can’t possibly live there. I figure, he must be visiting with his owners, right? Makes sense.
Today I was getting out of my car and happened to look up and saw the cutest little white kitty. On their porch. Cats don’t usually visit with their owners, do they?? I wonder how long it’ll take the landlord to see or hear about the cat.
P.S. I probably spent more time linking things in this post than writing it. Cheers to being a devoted blogger!
