To think that if we all had kittens instead of children we'd be much happier?

And AIBU could be closed?

If we all had kittens we wouldn't have to worry about:

schools (lunches, instrument tuition, teachers)

Party invitations

Cooking (why would you cook when you can buy stuff in pouches??)

Childminders/Nurseries

MILs/Grandparents

Supermarket Shopping (parking, people 'looking' at you etc..)

The world would be a better place TBH. (and yes, I am the mommy to a new kitten and am in love!!)

No because they'd grow into cats and shit in other people's gardens grin

AuntieMonica Sat 01-Oct-11 15:29:57

and they'd get fleas, at least nits stay on their heads and don't infest the carpet

alistron1 Sat 01-Oct-11 15:30:13

But cat shot os only a problem if you have kids. No kids = no problem grin

alistron1 Sat 01-Oct-11 15:30:31

is only a problem FFS. The heat has melted my brain.

Kittens smell

AuntieMonica Sat 01-Oct-11 15:31:16

and they eat cat food <hold nose>

You can use heavy duty chemicals on cats, you wouldn't have to go through the hell of nit combing.

Mind you, I 'spect some kitty mommies would...just to be better than the rest of us. 'AIBU to spend 6 hours flea combing my cat rather than buying some frontline....'

I can see it now....

Nextdoor's child keeps shitting in my garden

My child won't sleep anywhere but the kitchen worktop

How can I prevent every child in the neighbourhood from entering my house via the cat flap?

My teenage child wants to get her 8 nipples pierced

AuntieMonica Sat 01-Oct-11 15:35:05

you'd still get competitive kittening

my kitten can't shred the curtains yet, AIBU?

my kitten has only drawn blood from my ankles 3 times this week, yet it's attacked DH 6 times, i think it prefers him..

*disclaimer, this is NOT in any way directed at wonderful cat-rescue type MNers

You're right it's a bad idea. There'd be kitty schools, mummy and kitty parking spaces, G+T kitties, PFB kitties etc...

Worms, can, all over the shop.

Can MNHQ delete this thread, I've scared myself with my vision of the future.

kerrymumbles Sat 01-Oct-11 15:35:49

i hate cats.

happystory Sat 01-Oct-11 15:36:14

Weeeell, happier I don't know. Have sat up half the night waiting for a kitten who hasn't been going out for very long, worrying about big bad things happening.

At least you can phone a teenager....

AgentZigzag Sat 01-Oct-11 15:37:17

You could have told me that before I had children hmm

worraliberty Sat 01-Oct-11 15:38:01

A bit of a catastrophe OP wink

valiumredhead Sat 01-Oct-11 15:38:21

We would but who would look after us in our old age? wink

worraliberty Sat 01-Oct-11 15:38:43

Ziggers Just be grateful you didn't have to push a whole litter out and lick them clean shock

alistron1 Sat 01-Oct-11 15:39:14

The kittens would just eat us when we became infirm valium.

AgentZigzag Sat 01-Oct-11 15:40:01

I was far too posh to push worra wink

alistron1 Sat 01-Oct-11 15:40:31

catastrophe - LOL!!!

LetThereBeRock Sat 01-Oct-11 15:40:34

Begone Kerry.You unnatural being. No one can hate kittens.

AgentZigzag Sat 01-Oct-11 15:41:33

I've got my DCs ages well spaced valium, nine years ought to have most of my old age covered grin

AuntieMonica Sat 01-Oct-11 15:41:46

eew, imagine being eaten by a cat shock

it would push you about with its paws and drag you around the garden for hours before licking your eyes and leaving you in the hot sun

<providing the cat is built like Arnie to push me about btw>

alistron1 Sat 01-Oct-11 15:42:18

Kerrymumbles would be the one in the office moaning when she has to cover colleagues for kitty leave.

kerrymumbles Sat 01-Oct-11 15:42:27

urgh
