A Teaser.

This is how I spent my Sunday:  What’s that, you say? Where are you?

That is a cage with a stuffed cat inside. You get to play with one of these when, instead of preparing for Passover, you spend the day with the cat ladies of New York City at the midtown ASPCA offices getting certified in TNR.

What’s TNR, you say?

Trap. Neuter. Release.

Yup. Three words I had never put together until a vet friend of mine told me about them. There’s a stray cat and two kittens in my yard and I’m trying to get them fixed a humane way so I don’t have 200 kittens this time next year.

In the meantime, I believe the mother cat is pregnant again. She is determined to sneak into my house when I am not looking and lay her babies in the living room.

Have I mentioned that some of us are allergic to cats and I am married to a man who does not believe in household pets that don’t swim in a bowl of water? 

I celebrated National Pet Day earlier this week by secretly giving away the family guinea pigs when nobody was looking. I had no choice. I had to make room for the cats.

    Here’s what’s going to happen: she’s going to sneak in and go straight to your massive (wild guess here) laundry pile and deliver 20 kittens. I’m on the edge of my seat. Also I’m locking all my doors.

    Hilarious. Sorry. There r feral cats all over the hood. Good luck with your project. Stop feeding them!

    I’m just waiting for one of your kids to sneak one of the kitties in. I bet right now there is a corner of someone’s closet with a blanket and a bowl of food.
