Mollycoddle Overkill?

Target was out for a walk last night. He was sniffing around our neighbour's car, trying to figure out where she'd been (the wet market so the smells were really interesting) The sun set rather abruptly and suddenly our kitten was out in the dark.

Of course this is the time everyone is out and about: strollers, kids with footballs, etc. But Au went out and brought Target back across the street safely.

We were all grateful to the big cat but I'm wondering if we aren't mollycoddling the kitten a bit too much. After all, we live in a quiet dead end street and Target was only 5 to 10 meters away from our garden.


BTW Dog Talk is out in the print version of the Star tomorrow. If you have a good dog story, please feel free to share on this blog!

I tend to mollycoddle my kits too--always looking after them. Oh yeah... Gemini isn't really my kit and she's almost three years old...
