Aww.. Don't show me those sweeties. I've been trying to fight off the increasing urge to get myself a new kitten or puppy after being cat-less for awhile now... That picture isn't helping me win that fight.

In our house, we're occasionally the unwilling participants in a game initiated by our mogs. It's called Hunt The Cat Sick.
It always starts in the morning when we're just waking up. One of our cats vomits noisily in a secret location somewhere in the house, and we have to find out where before we can clean it up. It's a fun game for all the family
Personally, I like to think there's just gloom - but little doom (at least for now). That makes the world seem like a whole lot brighter place, doesn't it? Gloom we can usually deal with one way or another.
You're absolutely right! But I think that, in this case, we're dealing with perceived doom, which isn't always a bad thing. It can either feed the gloom, or serve as a call to action or a chance for a fresh start. I plan to use the doom and gloom that's circulating throughout HP as a chance to change direction and improve my skills.
