My friend has two cats. I played with them today. It was relaxing. Watching them knead and purr on your lap is one of those small joys that are priceless.
I’ve always loved cats. But I never had a pet growing up. I played with all the neighbourhood cats. I had told myself that once I have a place of my own, I will get myself a cat. It’s been four years since I got a place of my own (a rental, but still). I still don’t have a pet. Maybe next year.
It’s not that I don’t want a pet. It’s mostly because I am lazy and I don’t want the commitment.
Definitely next year.
