When I was a little girl, I had always wanted to find a kitten with a gorgeous bow as a gift for me — for my birthday or Christmas. I’ve grown up with cats around me all my life, but there was something about having a cat that was “mine” that really appealed to me. When I got my 2 cats I could call my own, I felt in love with cats even more.
My kids are asking for a kitten for Christmas this year. Though we have 2 cats already, the kids haven’t really bonded with them since they’re quite old and set in their ways (read: too snobby to play with the kids). I would love for my kids to one day have their own cat and the relationship with him that I have to my 2 cats, but there are a lot of things that really need to be thought of before you add that new member to your family.
