What did you do for Family Home Evening last night? My older sis and her fam took care of fundraising business for her oldest son's trip to Germany. My fam? Not so exciting. We only discovered that we have 4 CATS LIVING BEHIND OUR SHED! Yes we do. A mommy and 3 babies. Remember how the husband and I are so fond of animals?
I don't even know what you have to do to get rid of cats- humanely. We called animal control. They don't deal with cats. Yay. And, really, I hate to separate a mom from her babies. A little bit of the "Golden Rule" application here. Cause I wouldn't want anyone to do that to me. (please remember that if you ever find me behind your shed)
I was wondering how long we might expect these kitties to hang around, so I went to Google to see what the life expectancy of a feline might be. Around 15 years. And we all know cats have 9 lives- ergo (and you can check my math) we can plan on these cats being around for 135 years. Unless we can figure out what to do with them. Which we will. Figure out what to do with them, because my limit is like 100 years. Besides, I don't even know how I would get a cat to adhere to a curfew. You just can't parent those guys. So, sorry cats, you are out of luck.
The children vote to keep them. Um, I hate to tell them this, but they didn't even register to vote yet. And besides, they are under 18, so they aren't even eligible for a vote. Phew. Majority rules here. The husband and I are unanimous. The cats will go. The method is unclear.
