When a Man Loves a Kitty

I've been talking about favorites a bit lately, but did you know that I have a favorite brother-in-law? AniC's husband is without a doubt, my all time favorite brother-in-law. JuC is very friendly and very kind and very very patient husband to the baby in the family (that would be AniC).

I feel for him though.

See the thing is, JuC really loves kitties, he really wants a kitty, but AniC really really won't let him have one.

Isn't that the saddest?

I feel his pain. I want to take in every stray animal that comes by and Gary always tells me no. So me and my brother-in-law have this one thing in common and we just.... we don't have to say anything, we both understand each others pain and knowing that is a comfort enough to us both.

And that is why, when he drove all day to come spend his birthday in my neck of the woods, I knew I had to do something special for him. Something extra thoughtful.... so I found him THE cute-est kitty birthday card and asked the best artist I know to sketch a kitty just for him....

I don't know for sure, but I'm thinkin' I did help him have a pretty kitty-rific day!

OH! Wait.....

I .......

Uh....

?

I always do this, I tend to get people mixed up.....

Is it JuC that likes kitties and AniC that does not?

Or is it AniC that likes them and JuC doesn't????

Uh-OH!!!

So embarassing!!!!

no, you got it right. if by love you mean hate and by hate you mean love.
the sad part is that when juC tells me he loves me, what he's really saying is "i love you a great deal, but not quite enough to let you get cat."

think fo your dad (and how much he "hates" cats) and i think it will give you a little insight into juC's love/hate relationship with you...and cats (:

oh! not to mention the fact that before we got married i made him promise me that if i married him he'd let me have a cat. he totally suckered me.
