The Five-Year-Old writes to Santa

In the middle of writing a letter to Santa, something rather unsettling occurred to The Five-Year-Old: “Mommyo, when Santa brings you kitties, are they already spayed?”

Mommyo: “Yes.”

The Five-Year-Old, crossing out something in her letter to Santa: “Oh. I don’t want one from him then.”

Mommyo, curiously (kittens have been on The Five-Year-Old’s Christmas list for months now): “Why not?”

The Five-Year-Old, matter-of-factly: “When my kitten grows old, I want it to have one litter of one kitten so that I will always have something of it around.”

Something more than this. Cozy in his favorite spot. (Photo: The Five-Year-Old)

About Shala Howell

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.
