We already heard from Jiji about her idiot parrot, and it turns out her sister seems to have pet problems as well. Khadine, who can also be found over at Life in Trinidad & Tobago, explains:

I had to leave my cat Chloe in Trinidad when I moved to Romania, she has
since adopted my sister. On my sister's blog, she spoke about MY cat biting her on her head,
my heart is broken....

As a result, I felt the need to write a lifeku too...

Why cat, why? Did you
see fit to bite her skull and
not mine? Traitor! Hmmph.

and of course, a subsequent lifeku about Romania:

Romania, No!
So eastern block I want my
cat and a MAC store

Kadhine, you need to let go. Chloe loves ME now. Get over it. Do you give her YOUR fleece blanket?


My sis needs to know
She's not wanted anymore
By the Almighty.
