Hey guys so heres the rub (sorry !) whats the best tactic to ensure your man lets you have another moggie ? Already have 3, so he´s none so keen on number 4 - any suggestions

If you find out let me know. I keep telling mine that three is an odd number.

I had this problem when i saw Jake, he was sooo cute as a fur baby He said no, no more cats Ahh but i hatched a cunning plan

When we were out in the car i just kinda happend to be passing the centre and said i wanted to stop and just show him this teeny weeny little fella. Just a look mind, nothing else..hee..hee.

There were 2 mom cats in one basket (sisters?) and a big bundle of squirming kits. Cute just doesn't describe it I pointed out the little kit i had my eye on and popped him onto his hand. Well he was hooked with those bright blue eyes shining up at him He is now 12 and a beautiful big, long haired boy

Its easy to say no when the cat is not sitting in front of you

By Moggie...I guess you mean cat.....well find the cat that you want and hold it up to your husbands face...I am sure he couldn't resist the cute little kittie!!

I say just bring the kit home..Your hubby won't make you take him back

I would love to have another to add to my two, but my apartment complex has a two pet rule. I guess I'm lucky I was able to get TWO...the only reason I did was because Brandon and I aren't married yet, nor do we live together, so he really didn't have a say in the matter (although, come October, that argument won't work anymore).

But as soon as I brought Oscar home (the second kitty) and showed Brandon, he was taken in. Ooooh yeah, score one for Jade.

So, definitely put the kitty in his face and see if he can resist.

Talk to him while he's sleeping. Once you get him to say "yes" in his sleep, then bring it home.

If he asks when you two talked about it, just say "The other night in bed! Don't you remember?"
If he responds "No", just start crying and say how he never listens to you!

I like this idea! Very cunning, very slick. I think it could work.

The monkey can be trained to help feed the cat you'll let her get if she lets you get the monkey

or ask him during a sporting event on tv....chances are he'll say: "ok!" and not even hear the question!

hi guys, getting some great ideas.............might try a few soon
I´ve never had a pedigree before and I´m really fancying a Bengal. they are so beautiful, I particularly like the orange ones Maybe I could offer a monkey or a flying squirrel as a trade off

i have a house and business in south east asia.. and i always tease my wife about being in a jungle . sooo if i am in the jungle why cant i have monkey also

I remember one morning when i was still living there, I was sitting outside drinking some kopi(coffee) and everytime the dog would bark, a monkey in the tree would throw a mago(hmm maybe i spelled that wrong) at the dog,, the dog would run in the dog house, for little, come back out and bark at the monkey again, monkey would then throw fruit at the dog again, this was a game taht went on for like 20 min hahaha

anyway, how about just get one maybe he wont notice it being the house?

I just bring them home. My man just cannot resist a kitten. I actually left one on his pillow one time while he was sleeping, slipped out and went back to work. (I had taken the kit from a maintenence man that wanted to flush him.) He called and asked me if I had been home from work, because when he awoke, there was the cutest little red kitten sitting on his pillow looking at him. I said no, and had him going for a minute, but then I had to fess up. By the time I got home from work, they were best friends.

Kinda dishonest....but...i've been known to just...bring in an innocent little animal that was abandoned just till i "found it a new home" hehe which always winds up being with me

Oh, and offer up plenty of the good stuff ...he won't care about the cat if he's happy.
