Carol Teal February 26, 2007

The price we pay (pun intended) for having these cute little pets! You should see what I had to do with my rocking chair to keep one of the cats from shredding the cane back (she already had done quite a bit of damage before I discovered it). It is wrapped in blankets like a mummy! And then there was the time my previous Siamese scratched on my beautifully engraved leather saddle after I had oiled it (must have been the smell that made her crazy). I cried over that one and really wanted to kill her at the time! #3998318
