This stems from the horsemeat post which I, admittedly, did not keep up w/, but just now skimmed the last page and saw where the kids were loved equally to the pets and I'm sorry, but... WHAT?!
I loved my cat. Got him about a month after we got married. That guy slept on or w/ me almost every single night for 7.5 years. We played 'hide and seek' together (seriously, that cat was awesome) among many other things, but guess what....
When it came to my ex leaving me and me knowing that I'd never be able to afford to rent a place on my own WITH that cat.... and my ex would get the kids if I had no place to live w/ them.... Guess who got the cat? Yep, my ex. No way did I even hesitate about making that choice.
Editting to add.... it did make me SAD knowing I had to leave the cat, but when I looked at the face of my newborn son... NO comparison whatsoever.
