Default Request for information

I am looking for information from pet lovers (I hate to call us
"owners" - it often seems the other way around) for use in a new book I
am writing. Specifically, I would like to have some unique things you
have done for your pet to accommodate their needs. I am really not
looking for the common reasons - I already know most of those. I am
looking for the unique and even odd reasons. For instance, one lady in
Englad wrote to me after reading my book Cold Noseas the Pearly Gates
to tell me that she had actually sold her house and moved to a
cul-de-sac to keep her kitty safe from cars. Tragically, the kitty was
hit by a passing car not long after the move, which was the reason she
had acquired my book.

I am not sure I am going to publish this work yet, but if your input is
good enough, I will give you credit for it in the book. Hopefully,
your story will be more uplifting than the kind woman from England.
Please e-mail me at . Please keep it short...I get a
lot of mail. And thank you in advance.

Wow, she went through a lot of trouble to supposedly protect a cat, and
then murdered it by allowing it to run at large. All she had to do was
keep it in.


You know as the owner of a cat who has freedon to go outside whenever
it wants to I have been doing a lot of thinking about all the clamor to
"Keep the cat inside, it will live longer and really doesn't mind being
house-bound." After quite a bit of soul searching, I decided to let
the cat do it's thing (hell, it's only a damn cat) and confine my 12
and 14 year old children (now they are much more precious than the cat)
to the house for the duration of their adolescence! The reasoning is
exactly the same as folks who say they are doing a kindnes to their
cats.

There is an endless number of terrible things that can happen to a
teenager in these times, including:
Street crime,
drugs,
Sexually transmitted diseases,
pregnancy
rape,
auto accidents,
falling in with bad company
alcohol,
tobacco,
etc, etc, etc.

Although I expect my children to put up a fight when I lay down the
law, as a parent, I would be derelect if I let them run around the
streets getting involved in all that awful stuff.
They can be home schooled through juniour college. If they want to
hang with their friends they can do it on line or in my living room.
Clothes and personal items can be bought on line. I can get videos
instead of letting them hang out at the local multia cinema and get
into God knows what trouble.

If it's good for your cat, it's better for your kids.
