Cimbi Wants to Come Over and Play
Every year at some point we realize that the cat needs a friend. Not one of the recluse feline variety, Cimbi is bored when by herself, and angry with us afterward. However, Cheryl's allergies won't permit a second pet (cat, dog, rabbit or Dr. Manhattan - as we are damn excited for The Watchmen!). So we are trying to solve this creatively.
This summer's first genius idea was sending her off for a relaxing month in the country. We tried finding her a farm to visit upstate, envisioning her romping through alfalfa, intently watching bugs, and drinking fresh milk from a saucer. The reality was a total and complete failure. Given what we saw, Jane Austin would have vomited all over Charlotte Bronte. I may write about if, my insides stop turning.
Our second genius idea may involve YOU! That is, if you are someone either home during the day or have a small pet that could be her playmate. We're thinking a kind of co-parenting or something. Don't worry, this is nothing like Flexpet.
