Fighting the urge for another kitty

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!

Hahaha yeah, I have considered fostering too.. I'm not sure if we'll be accepted though as we rent and lots of places say they need to see your agreement with your landlord to have pets. =/ It's definitely something I'd love to do though!

I am always looking on rescue sites and would love more kitties, but will not take any more at the moment (even though the urge is strong) as OH keeps insisiting we move. So when the time is right I will get more. I have also considered fostering. Going to look into that if/when we move.

I feel your pain! I'm in the process of getting an out-of-state job, preparing to move etc. but I want another cat so badly right now! I troll petfinder, fall in love with kittens, and then pout about it. It's hard b/c I know that I can get another cat *soon*, but the moving process keeps dragging on and taking more and more months than I anticipated. Being responsible is sometimes the pits.
