My youngest daughter Madeline is a cat lover. She has been begging me numerous times for me to either buy or adopt a cat. I keep turning her down because having a pet is huge responsibility. Last time we adopted a male cat named Custard, he went missing. We did not know whether he ran away or was stolen.
Two weeks ago, I thought of surprising Madz by buying her a cat stuffed toy. It’s not as good as a real cat but she loves it so much she carries it wherever she goes except when going to school of course. I am planning of giving her a real pet cat when she’s old enough to take care of it.
