    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.  smile

    ("curtains, Lisa.  remember the clawed curtains."  "couch, Lisa.  remember having to guard that from being clawed."  "plants, Lisa.  remember the thing about having live plants around."  "cat vomit, Lisa.  remember the thing about cat vomit."   hmm  hmm  hmm)

      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 lol

        I hate that game. What is worse when you find it when you go to bed...

    Too much doom and gloom here on HubPages and in the world. Natural disasters, threat of radioactivity, no fly zones, it is never ending.

    Cute puppy and kitten curled up in slumber and all I can think is,

    What the world needs now,
    Is love sweet love.
    No, not just for some,
    But for everyone.

    Hope this sticks in every one's minds for the rest of the day. lol

      What the world needs now
      is lights on in the hall,
      lights on in the hall,
      That's the only thing
      that's there's just too little of

      (when you have to worry about  find where your kitty did her vomiting in the night, anyway)   smile

      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?   lol  lol  Gloom we can usually deal with one way or another.   smile

        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.

      I'll agree Randy. All the PC type junk being used is making people thin-skinned. tongue smile
