To the Kitten I Will Never Own

I desperately wanted to call you my own, but sadly that won’t happen, little ball of fur.

kittenLook how cute this cat is? I’ve always wanted a Siamese cat, or a Ragdoll one, they always have these beautiful blue eyes. And look at her little paws! Gah! I’ve never even seen her in person, only this picture and I already fell in love with her. My sister’s neighbor found her but couldn’t keep her, so my sister figured I could. After seeing this picture I really wanted to. I’ve always been a cat person, I have two at my parent’s house, but they would hate it if I took them away from the only place they’ve known as home. Besides, they would make horrible indoor pets. They enjoy the freedom of being able to own the front and backyard. And when I lived with my older sister, there were also two cats. They were adorable…minus a few things.

Here are some pros and cons that left me with not getting the cat.


  • Adorable little things
  • Having one is awesome
  • They are independent
  • Cuddle with you
  • Great for small apartments….or big houses
  • They always stay cute
  • When they show you affection it’s the best thing in the world
  • And just wonderful


  • Shedding
  • Destroying furniture (not necessarily a problem with every cat)
  • Cost
  • Again, LITTER!

Many more pros, but I went to my apartment office to ask about the deposit and how much more my rent would cost. 10 extra dollars a month which doesn’t sound too bad, but the deposit is 400. 400? And I only get half back if I move. -.- 400 is just not something I can do at the moment, and every pet deserves an owner that can actually afford to take care of them. So sorry little kitten, I wish I could have kept you but it just wasn’t meant to be. But it doesn’t mean I won’t ever be able to own a cat….one day I will. :3

Thanks for reading and commenting.

    Aww how adorable!

    Litter/litter box isn’t actually too bad, at least in my case. I have a litterbox with really high walls so litter, for the most part, stays in the box and doesn’t cause too much of a mess =p Cost would definitely be my #1 “con” to cat ownership…totally did not expect the amount of money it costs to own a cat! Especially one with health issues like my little guy =/

    @Melanie, High walls,..interesting. Yeah, the cost is probably my biggest concern, I mean, I realize a pet is a life and thus requires most of the same things we require. But I just can afford it at the moment. But, I still plan on getting a cat eventually when I can actually take care of one.

    Aww, your kitty has health issues? I’m sorry to hear that. T-T

    I think only food and litter is pricy. I do think you need to wait until you get more space but Tomo helped me through some hard times in school. I love that stupid ball of fatty fluff….sometimes.
