Now these rules are much more reasonable!

(In the spirit of full disclosure, Mom did not come up with yesterday's entry by herself. She received it in an email. She also received the following. Most of you have probably seen them but we like them and think they are worth repeating. Oh, and we added a comment or two.)

To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About My Pets:

1. They live here. You don't.

2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. (That's why they call it "fur"niture.)

3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.

4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.

Remember: Dogs and cats are better than kids because they:

1. Eat less (And whose fault is that?)

2. Don't ask for money all the time (Do dog biscuits count against us?)

3. Are easier to train (Is she talking about us?)

4. Normally come when called (Ok, she ISN'T talking about us!)

5. Never ask to drive the car

6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends

7. Don't smoke or drink

8. Don't have to buy the latest fashions

9. Don't want to wear your clothes (Wear? Chew or lay on, maybe, but wear? No thanks.)

10.Don't need a gazillion dollars for college, and...

11.If they get pregnant, you can sell their children. (Not happening at our house!)

I like your rules, especially these guest guidelines.

It always amuses me when people take their poorly behaved children out in public but behoove me my well behaved foster pets.

Besides are you four legged children to your mom? Isn't that why you call her mom?

This made me laugh! People always ask me why I care so much for my two cats, and I tell them, "If I had children, I promise you, I'd care for them just the same."

People don't get it sometimes.
