As you may have guessed from my user name, kittycat27, I am a cat lover. I do have a cat, but he is 2 and a half hours away from where I currently live because I am at school.
This fact I think has dramatically increased my desire for a kitten. I mean at any given time I always want a kitten, but lately I've been wanting one way way way more. It may be also because where I currently live (an apartment) actually does allow pets, so I don't have that stopping me either. I do realize that as a student I may not have enough time to spend with the kitten, or it may distract me from my work, also student=lack of money for proper food, litter, shots etc, all these logical statements do not quench my desire. There is a part of me that says all these things, which a good logical reasons not to get a kitten, but the other part of me whines but I *want* a kitten.
I also run into the roommate problem. One of my roommates has been dying for a pet all year (we almost got a dog, luckily I convinced them out of it. They would only get a big dog and our apartment is to small for a big dog) the 2nd one doesn't care and the third one....well lets just say when I told her I was a cat lover and she responded with "why? They're useless." For being a political science major her tact and diplomacy is severely lacking.
Then there is my poor tortured boyfriend (cyborg owner of the blog). Whom I have been pestering for a kitten since almost as long as we have been dating. I know full well that my parents have forbid him from getting me a kitten under pain of death etc. This doesn't stop me! I constantly bug him for one with the hope that his love for me will cause him to defy my parents and get me a kitten! or he'll get me one just to shut me up because he can't stand the pestering any more. So far neither has happened, it's probably because I'm not trying hard enough!
Ah yes, I forgot the major factor in my lack of kitten, my parents. They are pretty much 99% of why I'm no using the blog to describe the kitten I just got. They want no more pets. We have 1 cat, whose gotten sick at least twice, and we're talking near death sick, that we have had the vet fix. Now you have to know my parents they love our pets but they aren't the type to keep a suffering animal alive. Luckily both times no surgery was needed on poor bunny (yes my cat's name is bunny) and he bounced back. Also, we have a (in)purebred cocker spaniel. She hyperactive, cute, horribly annoying, stupid jealous little 15 lbs thing. We do not think she'd take well so something else taking attention away from her. Bunny is older than Katie and can defend himself, a kitten couldn't.
So, alas another Christmas will go by and there will be no kitten for me :(.
Oh well, it's back to studying organic chemistry for me!
