Our Newest Member, Favorite Product & Falling Off The Wagon

So when we decided to treat my disease with food a couple years back that had us of course researching everything from whole healthy foods to healthy cleaning products for the house etc. It was really easy to find laundry detergent, soaps, cleaners etc. Even switching everyone to toothpaste that didn't have any additives was a breeze but finding ant killer (a must when you live here) not so easy. Well, I was at Clark's the other day and they had this great, smells like oranges and is safe for pets and kids. LOVE IT! So I think everyone remembers our beloved Tiger seen here right? Don't worry nothing happened to him. It's just that he is basically Morgan's cat. He loves her to the ends of the earth. Follows her everywhere like a dog. Sits with her during piano, sleeps on her chest at night, plays fetch with her and comes when she calls from anywhere in the house and I mean runs to her. So very sweet. Well, Tiger has never had a fondness for Ryanne (maybe it was the shoving in the dryer or cupboard thingy, that's another post) any-who, so we thought we would bless Ryanne with a sweetie all her own to grow with.
Meet Milo. He's the newest member of our family and seriously the sweetest thing ever. He lets Ryanne lay him on his back while she pets his stomach and he is so easy going. Probably a good thing since he will probably see the inside of the cupboard at some point. ;) We rescued him from going to the pound. Don't you think rescued pets are the best? I mean they just have this disposition that is so grateful and loving. Anyways, I just wanted you to meet Milo since I am sure there will be stories to follow.
OK last but not least I have to confess, I didn't just fall off the "no meat" wagon; I jumped,launched myself leaped for joy or at least boredom. It was fine I didn't miss meat really it was just that I got bored trying to come up with stuff to make. If someone were to say oh come be my live in chef and make me vegetarian meals every meal I could do it no problem. We are now taking application's although I must warn you the pay is REALLY low, mostly the reward of being around my sweet self. Ha! Ha! Oh man seriously I need to sign off.

Milo looks so sweet, though I'm not sure I can agree with you about rescued animals having the best dispositions... after all, we got Marley from the shelter!

Jessica said...

Milo is a cutie!

Yay for ant cleaner that works... I HATE ants.

Thanks for letting us stop by for a bit yesterday, it was nice to see you guys :)

If you find a personal chef that will work for free, please send him or her over my way too!

Milo is the sweetest. My 1st dog was about to returned back to the shelter when we stepped in and took her, she also came from the shelter. I wasn't about to let her be returned from where she came.

I just love you, you're so stinkin funny.

Love your new kitty. I LOVE snuggly, laid back kitties.

Thanks for the ant killer tip. I almost gag when I have to spray Raid. ick.

Aww... sweet kitty. You're such a good mamma, sensing that Ryanne needed one of her own! Made a birthday dinner for Bryan (my vegetarian) last weekend... a family favorite that he hasn't been able to have for a decade... open faced turkey sandwiches with all the trimmings, swiss cheese, homemade 1000 dressing, including bacon (the turkey was decent... thanks Central Market... the bacon tasted like styrofoam)... but Bryan loved it, and that's the important thing. I think cooking vegetarian is pretty easy, seriously. But I don't have to (even though I probably should), so maybe that's the difference.
