As you may know, we have a “houseguest” named Jack. Jack is staying with us because one of Jonathan’s friends lost his apartment. When Jonathan found out about Jack’s plight, he asked if I could find him a temporary home. I was more than willing to do so. After all, it wouldn’t cost me anything; all I would have to do is type up a post on Facebook. After no one offered to help, Jonathan mad a second request that could cost me something: “Could Jack stay with us?” The reason that request could cost me wasn’t that Jack’s food would be expensive. The cost would be the chaos that might ensue since we already had two cats who might not take kindly to a “houseguest,” as well as an 80 pound Lab who might intimidate a 12 year old cat.
