Because today is National Kitten Day, our Sunday Scribblings prompt for this week is Kitten. If you decide to write a post based on this week’s prompt, be sure to go back here and share your link so everyone can see how you interpreted things! Here’s what I did with it…
Ever since the beginning of the pandemic, I’ve given a lot of thought to the idea of getting a pet. Thus far, I’ve managed to talk myself out of it. But when the thought crosses my mind, I always have the internal debate: dog or cat?
I’m much more of a dog person than a cat person. I don’t have a problem with cats, I’m just more familiar with dogs. And that’s really only because we had dogs growing up. I’ve never had a pet cat.
However, living in an apartment, I’m not sure I could have a dog. I’d feel guilty leaving the poor thing cooped up while I’m at work all day. I’d feel bad not having a yard for it to run around in. So maybe a cat would make more sense.
But then there’s always the question of where do I put the litter box? As small as this apartment is, there just isn’t a super convenient spot for such a thing.
And then I’ve talked myself out of getting a pet all over again.
If I went with the cat, though, I’d definitely want to start off with a kitten. I know… I should adopt. Because there are animal shelters full of pets just waiting for a home. Selfishly, though, I’d want to start from the beginning.
Besides… kittens are super adorable.
