Today Lucas asked if he could "pwease keep the kitten inside." He also told me that he could "feel him singing." I told him that cats lived outside and the mommy kitty would miss him to much. It seemed to work for now. At least he didn't try and sneak the kitten in the house today.
I'm sure this is total payback for that time in high school when I snuck a kitten in the house and it lived in my closet for a few days. My cover was busted when my parents heard meowing coming from my room while I was in school. Since we already had 3 cats I had to get rid of the kitten.
