Our Family Cat

I don't believe you have met the sixth member of the House of Jones. Her name is Kathy and she is our cat.

Jon Paul got Kathy before we met. Kathy loved me from the first time I met her. I didn't see her true colors until after Jon Paul and I were married.

You see, Kathy is evil. She is evil because she will rub up against you, look at you longingly, begging you to pet her. And when you give in to her invitation and pet her, she will snap at you and take your arm off if you're not fast enough.

After we were married, I saw her do this to most anyone who came over to our house and were brave enough to try to pet her. Never once had she done that to me. I like to tell Jon Paul that Kathy approved of me from the very beginning!

Kathy has loved both of the girls from the moment they came home from the hospital. She is protective. Rebekah and Kathy share some sort of bond. They have a connection unlike any other I have ever seen. Kathy will let Rebekah do most anything to her and almost never snaps at her.

She can be funny now. I think she is telling us she needs a little friend. She will go into the girls bedroom and find one of their small stuffed animals. Then she will come through the house with it in her mouth, meowing at the top of her lungs. It's really cute...unless it's at 2:00 in the morning!

So, now you know Kathy. And you have been warned should you ever come to our house. Look, but you probably don't want to touch!
