|I've been a Mom and multi cat owner my entire adult life so things like clean carpets are an unknown thing to me What have I given up for my dogs???
I've given up on the Better Homes and Gardens style house. Knowing that even with the little humans grown there will always be broken toys, clouds of fur, and pee stains somewhere in the house.
I've given up lit candles in the house save for the bedroom when I'm up there watching them like a hawk. The dogs can reach the counters. When the power went out some months ago we had a lit candle on the stove. Suddenly the flame dimmed. It was Chii standing over it looking at us dumbly..."Sniff sniff sniff, hum something smells like toasty fur duh"
I've given up eating without sharing...begging, something the kids were guilty of n' cats too. Now I just naturally divide up my plate more or less.
Did I mention the Christmas tree decorated four feet from the ground so Callie doesn't pluck off ornaments to munch?
