Normally I roll my eyes and become unapologetically judgmental when I hear people say that they got their pet “for their kids.” Seriously, it’s your dog, not your 5-year old’s. Get your kid an iPad and save the dog for someone with advanced reasoning skills.
But a cynic and a hypocrite I most certainly am, since last year I did in fact go to the humane society looking for a cat . . . for Peaches . . . our dog. But seriously, can you blame me?
I have yet to meet a human being of any age who is as gentle and appropriate with a cat (any cat) as my pit bull is.
