Ah, the life. This kind of has a Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein flavor!

Especially love the parts about the good sofa and sneaking out the front door! Sounds just like our DD2's dog!

I want to hear the cat's version. Although I am a bit behind, you may have already done that...

Yep, that about sums it all up!

I think I could add in some irritating yapping just to be irritating from my dog!
