How do I convince my parents to let me have a cat?
Well, I have a couple weeks to think about things because my grandfather who has lived next door to my family for 15 years and is very close to my family is moving into a nursing home on Monday and my sister gets his dog. My parents have always said no to me having a cat because my grandfather loved the wild birds around our woods and a cat would have killed them.
Well, now my mother is fine with me having an indoor cat but I need to wait a couple weeks for my dad to calm down -it was his dad moving- to ask.
There are lots of cats at the humane shelter near our house and my friend's cat has just had kittens so I could get one, but I just need to convince them. I really need a cat. I need something to be just mine. I am having trouble with the kids in my class and I have severe social problems and I think it would be good to have a cat. We have two dogs, 3 including my sister's new dog, and they all get along with cats. I have already researched everything that goes into keeping a cat and my friend has already warned me, and I think I would still like to have one. How do I convince my dad?
