Good for you Meadow! Undeniable but true that cat's are much easier to care for. Full bowl and water dish, clean litter box and all is right in the world. I love my dogs dearly but it's like having toddlers permanently in the house. Keeping them out of dangerous situations, keeping up with their pottying, daily corrections and separation anxiety...woooof
Awww Harry looks like our Levon. And last night I got my kid another young rat. Nice thing about rats compared to other creatures, you can add a baby or even adult to unrelated ones and everyone gets on fine.
