Every night after River goes to bed, my two cats, Oden and Jasper, beg for attention from me. Sadly, I usually choose to pick up the house, make dinner, eat, do dishes, spend a few minutes with DH, and/or play on the computer. Poor guys. I used to call them my babies and brush them 3-4 times a week. I think they've been brushed twice since River has been born, they look so shabby. It used to be that when I walked in the house, they would greet me at the door and I would scoop them up, one at a time, and cuddle them. Right now, Oden is curled up next to me, happy to just be near me. Jasper even lets River grab at his tail and pull out his hair, because sometimes it's the only attention he gets from me. Sigh!
Anyone else want to post about their sad, neglected pets? Here's how much attention they use to get, pre-baby:
