Updated July 24, 2000

The Cat Dilemma

We are faced with one major dilemma, and (as with most of the world's problems) this involves a cat. Lara has a cat named Putt-Putt, who will be part of our joint household once we are together. We cannot decide whether this will make Putt-Putt my stepcat (much as Lara's children, if she had any, would become my stepchildren when we married) or my cat-in-law (as her mother will be my mother-in-law). We need input! E-mail your vote to!
