There but for the grace of God go I.


First children then kittens, can you sink any lower for trying to lure in blog readers?

Suburban Kamikaze

I am sure of it.



I have a group of friends called The Network. We are what happens to sixth grade girls when no one steps in to nip this stuff in the bud. We are the ones who get our husbands to drive over to City Hall and help take apart a city vehicle with a kitten stuck somewhere inside. We have had baby showers for kittens (don't knock it, it's all the alcohol and fun but no labor stories, and the cat toy gifts are really cheap). We pass around the humane traps and know the correct proportion of baby food to chicken broth for sick animals. One of us handles all the birds in spring. No one bats an eye at the panicked phone call asking for help transporting the baby squirrel/injured rabbit or whatever to the rehabilitator in the next county.
Your daughter could grow up to be us. And actually that's not such a bad thing, because these are the best friends I've ever had.


Whew! Lucky it was kittens. In your garage, it just as easily could have been coyote pups or, in my neighborhood, baby possums or iguanas. Think of where you'd have to go for that kind of formula!
