John and I always talk about getting a couple of dogs and a cat someday, but our nomadic lifestyles have kept us pet-free for years.
Thank goodness our neighbours have them!
We LOVE animals. And apparently the Norwegians do too - there is no dearth of dogs, cats and pet shops in Stavanger. But we mostly come in contact with the neighbourhood kitties, who all seem to live outdoors and have the fluffiest bodies we've ever seen.
Meet Mrs. Whiskers (or just 'W' as we've come to know her)
She lives right next door. We've sort of 'adopted' her since the Easter holidays when her family was out of town and she hung out in our yard for awhile. She's very friendly for a cat and loves attention. Apparently the crawlspace under our deck is her hideout place when it rains or hails and she can't get back to her own front porch.
Do you have or want a pet? How have your travels affected this?
