So, Michael took us to the other Humane Society in the area.

We looked at all the cats (and the dogs, too). Then we went to Borders to buy calendars. And so I could think about all the cats that we'd seen.

The choice was up to me.

I REALLY liked three cats a lot. Four, if I thought about it.
We went back and looked at them again.

None of them totally felt quite right. One was SOCLOSE ... but, with how the kids don't always shut the doors ... I don't want to get a cat just for it to run away.

And, instead of two of the ones that I was looking at, a set of kittens (well, five-month-old cats) caught my eye. But ... I can't be spending $160 on cats. (I still would need to get them collars and a scratching post.) Not right yet.

So, we arrived at home empty-handed. And, yes, I did cry about it.
But ... as bad as I felt not choosing ANY, the thought of choosing one right now felt worse.

I don't like being responsible or being a grown-up right now.

You will know when the right one is right. When we were looking for dogs, back in 2004, we went to the Humane Society. None of the dogs felt right until I got to the one that we ended up adopting. I just *KNEW* he was the one! We had him for 5 years before he was hit by a car and died! :-( But he will always have a special place in our hearts!

You will find a cat!

Being responsible sucks. I'm sorry, love. :-(

It's best to wait and choose the right one, as opposed to choosing a maybe and then regretting it. You're being smart, but it doesn't make it easy. Love you!
