It takes work to live together in a peaceable interspecies kingdom
Oh the trouble love brings!
Just about any time your heart runs away with you, you run up a debt you’ll be paying for day, hours, years. By a certain age, we homo sapiens are supposed to know (but do we ever?) about the birds and the bees. But a dog or cat can slip under the radar, fooling us into believing that all interspecies matches are made in heaven.
When reality hits, you’d rather have a pie in the face than a foot in some of the messes that await you.
