We have two cats! We are debating the trauma of a move vs finding them a good home here with family. If they stay here, we will likely be getting a new kitty at some point because my younger daughter LOVES cats.

I’m gonna have to figure out how to do image links, but maybe this instagram will work. It’s mostly cat pictures.  :D

Though I am firmly team Dog, those are some cuuuuttteee cats!

How old are they? Unless they are really old, I would imagine the move wouldn't be as traumatic for them as you might be concerned it will be. The struggle though will be finding a place that will accept cats (it's not impossible, just obviously another hurdle to jump over but something to look at regardless if you intend to get a kitty in future).
My, how time flies....

I moved my two kitties over.  It was included in my relocation package.  I wouldn't change a thing!!  Animals handle the move better than humans, in my opinion. 

And glad you are Team Cat (sorry XoD, but you know I love your floof).

Time for kitty pictures!  :D

Does this mean we get to talk about food, now?  Food and kitties make for the best threads!

I was saving this for Friday Five, but WE MADE DONUTS AGAIN (sorry KF)!  And they were even better than the first time (I tried a different recipe).  My husband approved of them so the new recipe has made the cut and gets to go into our cookbook.  But the best part is, even though I cut the revipein half, I still have half the dough left over, so we get more donuts this weekend!  Wheeee!
9/1/2013 - "fiancée" (marriage) visa issued

Also, speaking of kitties, a friend on Facebook posted this today, and if my husband wasn't so allergic, I would pretend I was the owner... click

Yeast donuts!  The second-best kind (French crullers, which are choux pastry, being the best, of course).

She's a nervous kitty and made the trip just fine, even handled staying with the in laws for a couple months while we found an apartment that allowed cats like a champ! (they didn't want to give her up)

My husband is a fantastic baker and cook.  Homemade bread and barbecued meats of various kinds are his specialties, although he has made a mean donut!
