2) Winter? Not the season for play dates in the park.
3) Cats? Put a cork in 'em!
The puddles of puke are appearing more regularly recently, including one delivered hot to the blanket over my legs in the wee hours of this morning. I am hoping that having vacuumed the entire house today will help with the problem. I remember friends saying their cats liked to eat & puke up Christmas tree needles. I have now cleared our house of those for another 11 months.
