Today we brought Clementine home from my sister's farm and she melted the hearts of all six of us. We had been debating the adoption of a pet for almost as long as our oldest could say, "kitty". Lately, anytime we drive anywhere, our four children will spot people on the street with their pets and sadly croon, "Another person walking a dog--and it's not us". But it wasn't until we saw this caramel coloured tabby that we buckled. We named her, Clementine, just because it suits her and we call her, "Tiny", for short. People have always reminded me that pets are great for children and after seeing my husband snuggle her to sleep, I have a notion they're good for grown-ups too. Clementine, we're all smitten.
