Im feeling confused, for the past couple of months we have been debating getting a new pet. We thought about a new hamster but Lola was so awesome its not fair to put that pressure on another hamster to be as awesome.
So we were thinking of a kitten, we were quite set until recently here is my pro and con lists
quite independent, so can be left
happy to sit on your knee which would be nice
never had one so be exciting
like that they follow you like a dog, i think rob would like this too having never had a dog/cat
worried about it trashing our new house
the dead factor, i do not like cats kill things, hopefully a bell would stop this
my knitting, how much would it destroy my wool
we dont have a place for a cat flap so if it was a outdoor cat it would be out all day, how do you get them to come back before bed etc
Cats can be snooty, so i would need a none snooty one
my family hate cats
Hmmm so confused, surely not all kittens would destroy our carpets, any advice?
Big con for a cat is that it isnt a dog, we want a dog but we cant coz we work but thought a cat would be a good option as it can be left for the most part.
It would be 2
easy to care for
wouldnt destroy the house
could be trained to be play nice indoors
ive had them before and think they rock
They live outside so you might not see them much,
quite a big job cleaning them out compared to litter tray
not as much fun as kitten/puppy/baby
harder to get someone to look after a bunny when on holiday as the hutch is so big
And then there is the baby factor, we want kids, would a animal be too much with a baby, would a cat smother a baby, would the rabbits just be left in the garden all the time.
Is a cat a more sensible option as it doesnt need as much 'care' and when i say care i mean the cleaning aspect. I just remember how it was bit of a pain cleaning out rabbits when i was young but the hutches are much easier now plus i'm like 15 yrs older.
Or do i get both and they would be the best friends ever
Can anyone help? anyone have both? or views on one or the other or any of my Cons, im not sure i could talk rob into both, i think if i did we would have one for like 6mths then get the other. I think i could totally have both
Im pretty proud of myself for not buying this little bunny i saw in the pet shop today
She was so lovely and playful i would have called her daisy
and im back to square one!
p.s this would be of course when we are moved in/ settled in the new house and i am absolutely not guilting rob into either one for my birthday lol
p.p.s im blogging quite a lot is it too much?
