I'm so excited We pick up our new boy on Saturday morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've waited 6 years to be a cat owner again and it's nearly D-Day. Just spent a blissful half hour in Pets at Home, inhaling the heavenly smell of dog chews and biscuits and hay and all pet smells that I've missed sooooooooo much. I almost had a sarcastic moment at the till when I asked the rather dim/inexperienced/stupid assistant (poor guy) if he could wrap up the two ceramic cat bowls for me. He looked blankly and said they didn't have anything to wrap them in but he would 'pack them carefully and delicately' for me. I guessed this would mean he would wrap each one in a separate bag or two. :thumbup1: Anyway, he started to put ALL my shopping into one flimsy carrier bag, then........put the bowls directly on top of one another so they were scraping....and at a pace of O.N.E M.I.L.E A.N H.O.U.R.....proceeded to lower them embarrassingly slowly into the carrier bag (because of course 'carefully and delicately' equals slowly?!?!?!) He then just lifted the bag up and everything jumbled together with a crash He then tried to fold the plastic food place mat in half (WHAT!??!) and at that point I just took it off him and trying VERY hard to rein in my PMT, said thanks and left the shop, carefully balancing an over-fully clanking heavy bag and a mat under my arm. BUT I WAS HAPPY because it all means I am going to be a cat mummy again and all is well!!
