Father's Day has come and gone, so details of our miracle cure for cat loneliness can now be shared. This plan was in the works for almost two months, with many secret phone calls and emails being exchanged between Karsten and myself. As Father's Day drew closer communication increased, as did the excitement levels.
There is a lot of truth to the expression that the only secret that ever gets kept is the one that doesn't get told. With 5 kids, 3 kids-in-law, a set of grandparents, Jay's 2 sisters and numerous friends all "in the know" there was a high risk of a security breech. So when Karsten and Diana, procurers of what was to double as the cat cure and a group Father's Day gift, arrived Saturday afternoon and Jay was still oblivious we were all pretty proud of ourselves.
Introducing the Hammond cat cure:
|Jenny, our 3 1/2 month old short-haired Dachshund|
|Rebekah and Jenny|
|Karsten and Jenny|
|Karsten, Diana and Jenny|
|Emily, the dethroned cat|
On Sunday afternoon some of us went out to the BC Wildlife Park. These little donkeys at the petting zoo didn't seem to know if they were coming or going.
After many lost hours of sleep thanks to our new addition I kind of feel the same way myself.
