Just get the kitten!!! when they see it they can't say no! it worked for my wife when she brought back Kitty and this from a guy who hates cats =0P but Kitty needed me because they were giving her away so how can i say no to a baby in need =0( now we're like best pals aaand the kids love her!
It's kinda already like a farm here where we're living
We have 4 dogs, a cat and a bird
Except NONE of those animals are my pets
So my argument was, that because it will be my only pet i can give it my undivided attention, it will stay in my room so it'll be like it doesn't even exist and it's not like i expect anyone to help my with taking care of it.
