I went to visit a pet store 2 weeks ago, and they routinely have cat adoptions in their store. I met this little kitty and absolutely fell in love. Out of the other kittens there, she was the nicest and sweetest thing!
She's a dilute tortie and only 3 months old (abandoned and was being fostered til she was abandoned again x__X )
I have been thinking of her since, and have been obsessing over the thought of having a pet. (One that is actually mine!)
I know a lot of the responsibilities of a pet, and taking care of them. I have my own townhouse, but my parents come to visit a lot. I asked to adopt the kitten and they flat out said no! (I was heartbroken ugh..)
But then I realized, it's my townhouse! I'm conflicted because on one hand, I love this dear kitty, but now my parents will be very upset if I get her.
Could you offer any advice for me? I don't want to adopt her then have my parents effect her well-being by constantly being upset. (They hate cats and love dogs) And returning her would make me feel awful.. But on the other hand, I'd adopt her and she'd be so loved by me and actually help with my stress and depression.
