Surprised my wife with a cat for an early Christmas present, she cried for an hour
MianBao the Cat (formerly Snow White) got her new home in Seattle yesterday.
My wife has been wanting a cat for many years, ever since being forced to leave her previous cat with her sister to go off to AmeriCorps. I've never owned a cat, and always distrusted them. Having a few family members with allergy issues didn't help.
But this year for Christmas, I finally caved. I snuck away to Portland for the day, and brought back this 5 year old (more mellow!) Bengal (hypoallergenic!) and surprised my wife at the door.
