First things first: Thanks for all the great advice regarding our first kitty.
To answer some questions: Pippa will be an indoor cat. We live near a very busy road. It’s just not safe. We aren’t going to declaw her, and I really do need to get her some toys and scratching posts. And like James and Maggie, she’ll eat a filler-free food – I hear wet is best from you guys! – but right now, she’s eating the same brand she was at the foster home. I didn’t want to mix it up right away.
I’ve been trying to get a cute photo of her no-tail but it’s so hard. Every time I approach her, she jumps over and rubs up against me!
She’s having lots of fun. I think James is, too. I’m pretty sure he believes that we got him the cat. Whenever he walks into the room, he BOUNCES in like, “Hey hey! Where is that cat?! YAYYYY Let me smell her. YAYYYY!” His life just got a million times more exciting.
Henry likes her, too. Pippa lets Henry pet her.
(Henry has learned to blow bubbles; it’s funny.)
I have another question for you all. DadHTP has kindly offered to buy us a jogging stroller for Christmas (seriously, most generous offer ever). I was initially opposed to a jogging stroller because – to be honest – I didn’t want to bring Henry on my runs. I see my runs as ‘me time.’ But now I realize that jogging strollers are soooo necessary for running mothers (and fathers). I’ll be able to run even on the days that the Husband is working, and I don’t have a babysitter (AKA a lot of days), and when Kristien is home, we can all run together (which would be really nice).
I’m so confused by all the options, though. During Saturday’s 5K, I talked to a lot of parents about their strollers (it was a stroller-friendly race), but honestly, all the models and specs and options just made my head spin.
So… What jogging stroller should I get and why?
