Guanajuato, Mex -- We're Home

We house sat for two weeks. That's the longest gig we've done, ever. I can't say it wasn't interesting. It was that. But I can say I do not want to do that again any time soon. We love the folks we were helping out. But, it is just that we cannot stand the cats and their peculiar indoor/outdoor behavior.

I thought this morning how these friends feed their cats on the kitchen counter to keep their dogs from eating the cat food. The dog's ration is served on the floor while the cat's is on the counter. We used to do the same thing when we had dogs and cats. However, the only difference is that our cats NEVER went outside tromping about in the yard where they would step into all manner of nasties in the grass.

I certainly acknowledge that it is "their" privilege and right to do with their pets as they see fit. But the thought that the indoor/outdoor cats can carry parasites in their paw pads onto the kitchen counter where human food is also served is just too much to bear. The fact that the cats would come onto the bed at night with their parasite-laden paws is also too much.

Anyway, we are home, we are tired, we ordered pizza, and now its time to go to bed.
