    But I Got A Cat

    I live alone and work up to 60 hours a week, so I'm in a situation where I wouldn't be able to get home at a decent hour to walk him (or her) and spend enough time with him before I'd have to go to bed so I won't be exhausted for work in the morning. So, I got a cat.  And he is...

    I Really Want A Samoyed

    My first and only dog died over a year ago. Since then, I've graduated from high school, and this semester I'm living in my own apartment. It's tiny, and frankly, not livable for a dog that isn't tiny as well. I don't really have the time or money to care for a dog either. Still...

    My current landlord doesn't mind, but I have to move soon and getting a dog is just not a good idea. So instead I got rats. They're lovely and very sweet, but other people think they're strange and gross. Plus you can't take them out for a walk and meet cute boys.
