Dear Ms. Snider, You may come into our "meticulous" home anytime and "warm" it up some with your children's toys, drop a few books around here and there, and even let your little ones finger-paint on our walls, but the last thing we'd ever allow in our "home" is a cat, dog or any animal that would leave hairs and who knows what else on the couch, carpeting, kitchen table, etc. . . I don't care how house-trained an animal is, it still leaves a "trickle" somewhere. Ms. Snider, is it really homey when you enter someone's home that literally reeks of an animal? How do people ever smell your good home cooking when your pets are living in your kitchen?
Mr. & Mrs. C. M. Hanley
