O.K. back to the bob cat issue. Rusty saw no humor in the fact that I made Amber chase a domesticated bob cat. When I asked him why he was not laughing, he asked me how I knew it was a domesticated bob cat and not a bob cat kitten that came down form the mountains?
Hmmm, I never really thought about it that way. However that did get me to thinking. Can I have a bob cat as a pet? Let's call Jake he will tell me.
So I call Jake. Jake is from Oregon and is family into hunting and trapping, I grew up in the city, so I called the expert.
Jake: hey momma what is going on?
Me: I want a bob cat
Jake: well I will get right on that.
Me: I had Amber chase down what I thought was a domesticated bob cat but she could not catch it. Rusty thinks it might have been a real bob cat kitten since they have been coming down out of the mountains. I want a bob cat.
Jake: Well if it was a real bob cat kitten then momma could have been hanging around.
Me: I want a bob cat.
Jake: then go get a trap, put a can of food in it and make sure you wear gloves when you take the trap out to set it up. You can domesticate a bob cat if you get it de clawed and spend a lot of time with it.
Me: Well we do have vets here and lets face it I am a house rat, so spending time with it would not be a problem. Can't you just bring me one back? I have a cat carrier.
Jake: I will see what I can do.
Now Rusty is laying next me and just wishing that Jake would shut up. I however am happy that I now know how to trap a bob cat.
I went to take a bath and Nikki came in and asked me if Jake was going to get me a bob cat. Oh yes my children do not care what I am doing, they will talk to me at anytime.
Nikki: well if Jake gets us a bob cat we can get a big collar and walk it like we walk the dogs.
Me: that would be so cool! Can you imagine someone coming to the door and seeing Rascle, Butter and a bobcat sitting there. Hell no one will ever try to break into this house!
Nikki: Hey we can name it Bob the Cat. It would be so funny to have people come in and then Bob the Cat comes walking along.
Me: man that would be so funny.
Nikki: you know we would have to get something for Butter. After all he is scared of the a 3 pound cat.
Me: oh that's right. Well I am sure that make something for dogs that have anxiety.
Nikki: Oh you so need to get a bob cat.
I get out of the tub and Rusty still is not laughing. He does swear that we have lost our minds.
Anyway onto another subject. I swear some children are so lazy! Nikki and I went by the church to pick up some more phone books. It seems that some of the children that are going on the mission trip do not want to raise the funds. One girl said why should I work for it when my dad will pay for it all!
Then there is Anthony. His family does not have the money to pay for his trip so he working his tail off to try to raise the money. Anthony stopped by the church and picked up 30 boxes of phone books!
So Yesterday as we were passing out some of Nikki's phone books she said that she was not going to go get any more to pass out, because Anthony needs the money, and Nikki has gotten some sponsors. So I asked Nikki why she was not helping Anthony raise the money.
Nikki called Anthony last night and told him that she Monday afternoon and Monday evening free and that she would help him go pass out phone books and that he could keep all of the money.
Nikki well both of the girls are such caring people. I know that Nikki will be rewarded for doing the right thing.
Anyway I need top go get into the shower, and go do some shopping. My family wants to eat tonight.
