Here is the order I chose:
Good news: John won't have to go to Iraq or Afganistan.
OK news: I like his dog.
Bad news: John will be leaving on Saturday to go to Georgia for training for 3-4 weeks. After that, he will be an alternate for some security job in Ethiopia.
I will be moving into his house for the duration. I may move my cat too.
Does anyone have any advice on a) temporarily moving a cat, b) introducing an older cat to an overactive puppy, and
Update: On second thought, I scratched (c). I figure I've lived at least 34 boyfriendless years, only 3 - 4 weeks should be all right. Right?
