As a young child, the cats in the cradle in my house were a couple of pet rabbits. That was simply the best I was going to do. A dog was clearly out and my mother was allergic to cats (which all moms say when their kids pine for a pet). But my senior year in high school had my mom unable to say no to a precocious little cat named Tiffany. Here, I began to receive my education on the merits of a cat's meowing.
Dogs are man's best friend, but unfortunately, they can be a landlord's worst nightmare.

You ever just feel like you're being trapped inside a little box with one little hole in the center of it. There's no way to get out and that's the little pinch of freedom you ever get. Well, I've felt like that pretty much all my life. I was the sweet girl who always said yes. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. Never stood up for myself. Let people talk to me any and every way possible and I sat there and took it. Every last bit of it. Recently that all changed.
