from my heart to yours

I just wanted to make sure I told all of you thank you so much for your comments and warmth on the prior post "Liquid Smoke"...

I'm sure some might have thought "what a title for that!" ... when you love something (or atleast when i love something) there is a fire that burns inside of me and its one hell of a flame. And when one feels a loss or sadness in connection with that flame it builds up smoke.... liquid smoke....tears....

If you figured it out, well I guess I'm not as obscure as I thought I was and I'm glad you figured it out...

My sisters Raquel and Pebbles are very much the animal lovers themselves. I learned today that Raquel's hamster died today. Hamsters live an average of 2 years... Her hamster was about 3. I don't want to think about it, but when mine go...I'll probably not get another hamster. Then again, they are fun little creatures so I might.

Raquel has 2 turtles, 1 bird, 2 bunnies, a ton of fish, a guinea pig....and I think that's it. I'm pretty sure she doesn't have a dog or cat (yet) but I know that when they get thier house built out in the country she'll have dogs and cats and horses, lol...

We do want fish tho. Last time we went to the pet store we saw these really awesome goldfish i'd just die to have!!! But, I must wait...waitwaitwaitwait... The next year is going to be alot of waiting... And a doggy. I want a dog. But having a dog brings on alot of fears... they go outside, they bring in fleas... fleas carry disease...these can get on the cats and make them sick... a bit paranoid? yes. I am every bit paranoid of some stray flea getting on my babies and making one or both of them sick.

Leave it to a bad experience creating a sour taste you can't get rid of or forget...I was so afraid of getting another cat because of either Miss Diva or Maige bringing disease in the house and the Mysterious dying because of Crystal's dogs' fleas...

But I'm happy we did. I am so happy to have my Kai and my Drake. I am happy that he's got a friend. And altho Kai thinks that Nilla & Lo-Jack are her own personal self-moving toys and I get mad at her for chasing them when they're in the excercise balls... We are one big happy family.
