|I'm married to a engineer.
If you are lucky enough to be married to one too, you know that an engineer, well, is a
different breed. They are wired to approach everything from a "problem-solving" point
of view. That's certainly true of my hubby.
Many years ago my job kept me on the road for weeks at a
time while hubby consulted from home. He worked from the house, (still does), and
shared the space with the same pair of cats for twenty years.
The cats, Mandy & Squeaky, never warmed up to Dave even
though they relied on him for the necessities of life. The day finally came when
old-age was getting the best of the kitties. With the house without any furry
companions, we made the decision to adopt, but not more kittens.
