After that, Topher took a nap and then we decided it was the perfect day to go to the local animal shelter. This was a favorite past-time for TJ and I back in college, and we still love it. Topher was SO excited about the rows and rows of dogs and cats.
There was even an enormous cat that we couldn't resist taking into the "hug room" to meet one-on-one. It weighed more than 3x what Squash weighs, and it looked like a miniature mountain lion. It was a very nice cat, and Topher impressed everyone by how nicely he was petting her. We aren't in the market for another animal, but someday I know we'll be taking Topher to the shelter when he's a little older and we'll all pick out a pet together. Everyone who met Topher said how cute he was (one of the shelter workers was about to kidnap him) and how adorable it is that he gets so excited about the animals. We couldn't agree more.
We never know what Saturday is going to bring, but we do know that it's going to be the best day of our week.
