Re: RE: holiday decorating

Well, Daryl, just think how many mice I WOULD have if I didn't have two cats! LOL. And sometimes they can't get into the closet or door where the mice are. Last night, I left the pantry door OPEN so they could find that little vermin.

No rethinking necessary. Adopt cats anyway. Mine wouldn't tolerate a

got them anyway. Winter's coming - great lap-shin-shoulderwarmers.
