I thought there was a thread for this one but I didn't see it. Sorry if there already is. ;D Anyway, I really like this one, especially all of the stuff about Watson and BooBoo. I felt kind of bad for Karen that she didn't get the cat she wanted and thought she was actually pretty good about it (thinking about my little cousin throwing a major hissy fit yesterday because my grandma got pepperoni instead of cheese pizza ;D) because I probably would reacted with the same disappointment. Was glad, though, that she came to like Pumpkin (who sounded cute ;D) My favorite part was when Watson and Karen tried to walk the cats on the leashes. ;D I love it when Watson interacts with Karen and the kids and spends time with them like that. Reminds me of me and my dad. ;D

Hmm, I seem to remember a thread for this book, but I could be thinking of another book since there are a lot of LS cat books ;D. So cool that Watson reminds you of your dad in this one Aln! I thought this book was sweet, I thought Pumpkin was a cute name for a cat .

I call my black cat (and pretty much every animal that crosses my path) pumpkin, even though it's not her name. My roommate named her dog Pumpkin too. I'm sure If I had a baby, it would also occasionally be called pumpkin. I'm not very creative with my "pet" names.

Read this for the first time last night. I could totally relate to it because I went through the whole old kitty dying thing this year. Only mine was old and achy for a few years, not just the few weeks that Boo-Boo was. (And Boo-Boo didn't die until the next book, I know.) Coincidentally, I did the getting a new kitten thing too (2 kittens actually). Let me tell you, they don't "cheer up" an old cat at all.
On a lighter note, I have to admit that I have always thought dressing up animals in clothes/costumes is hilarious for some reason. I would have loved going to Karen's class party if I could ignore the fact that it was a horrible idea. What was Ms. Colman thinking allowing a bunch of animals to be forced together in a small room with each other and a class full of hyperactive 7 year olds?
