Catty has left the building.
I was so proud of my boys and their nuturing natures. Little Catty had attached himself to the side of his "habitat" (box) and started to cocoon.
That's when things started to go badly.
First of all, Lucas flicked him off the side of the box (he claims he thought Catty was dead).
Then Jason told the boys to get rid of the body (well, to put the box and contents outside).
Then Jacob, in all his exuberance to carry out his father's wishes (ahem) ran over and stepped on Catty.
And there you have it.
RIP Catty 2006-2006
I'm sorry you got mixed up with this family.
