Today we had a fun time visiting Netsie & DeDe (my parents). The highlight of the trip for Layla was getting to see Sassy the cat. She talked about Sassy the whole car ride home.

Layla LOVES cats and is planning to ask Santa for one. A cat isn't ideal for our family. Our two dogs won't be fans of a feline in our home, not to mention Gary is highly allergic to cats. Period. We will probably never get a cat. Plain and simple, but for a 4 year old cat lover that is a hard pill to swallow...not that she swallows pills, but whatever. She is sure that Santa will deliver on this deal.
Sooooo have you guys seen Lulu? Meet Lulu.

LuLu acts just like a real kitty when you pet her. She purrs, rolls back and looks into your eyes to let you know just how much she loves you.

I was reading reviews about Lulu and get this...someone purchased Lulu for her mom in a nursing home. This woman said her mom was sad and depressed and missed her cat from home. The daughter bought this cat and the mom is VERY pleased. HA! Let me be the first to say that Lulu IS very real.
On a recent trip to Wal-mart we found regularly priced Lulu ($50.00) on sale for $28.00. I freaked was I gonna get Lulu home with Layla shopping with us?? I ran to the bath section and grabbed a towel and covered Lulu and we continued on with our shopping trip. Every once in a while you could see Layla looking around the store for a cat. The gosh darn thing was meowing in the basket. Hayden at one point ripped the towel off the box searching for the meowing sound. Gary and I couldn't stop laughing. It was rather fun getting that silly cat home quietly. You'd think it would be like a bird and quiet down when a towel was thrown over it's cage. NOPE...and the drive home was even more of an adventure. But, we will have one very happy little girl when she wakes up on Christmas morning. I can't wait to see her face.

She also wants this:

I love that story of you trying to buy the gift with her there. I think we've all been there. I can't wait to hear how she likes it. And ooh, a Jeep. The girl has taste!

LOL! I love Lulu! She will be the happiest little girl! And such a sweet little girl who wants that monster jeep! haha! She would love driving her new cat around in that! Funny story! And I've seen that cat at the is definitely life-like!

I am highly allergic to cats too! Way to go getting it on sale. Hilarious that she wants that big ol' jeep, go on, get it for her!!

That is my kind of pet cat! That is too funny about hiding it under a towel. I have sent Jason to put stuff in the car before to hide it from the boys!

Hollie said...

That is so funny! I think all moms have been there...trying to smuggle toys out of the store!

I just sold a cat like that at my garage sale (with a broken neck) was very life-like! Even hissed if you pulled its tail!

I am CRACKING up at you! I saw that cat in Target the other day and it freaked me out! I remember LC loving and chasing Jan's cats last time we saw you. Too funny. Can't wait to see pics of LC with Lulu.
