I have to keep telling myself now is NOT the right time for another kitty. I can't stop looking at rescue sites, and CF definitely doesn't help with all the cute kitty pics, and stories about cats in need.
We have enough money for another cat right now, we have enough space in our bed for a third kitty (just, cos the current two often take up half the bed!), we definitely have plenty of needy cats in nearby shelters that we could help. We've talked about it think it's best to wait because:
We rent and they don't even know about the 2 we have (first on my list as to me, it's the smallest issue - if we can get away with two, what's another right?) We're trying for a baby and I know when that happens, it will change things immensely. I guess I'm just a little worried that if we did get another kitty now, would it be too much financially once I was at home and not working?
I know that we should just wait an see where we're at in a year or so but I can't stop thinking "one extra won't make that much difference to us but it will make so much difference to the life of a cat in the shelter AND it will make room in that shelter for an extra kitty to have a warm place to sleep and good food until someone can make their life a happy one".
Argh. I need to stop looking at rescue sites for awhile I think!
