even though i’ve wanted kittens for years, it took a while for me to actually settle on getting them due to the trade-offs involved. travel becomes an issue, moving a larger one. cleaning has to be a daily thing lest everything be covered in cat hair. there are extra expenses, especially considering the cats eat better than i do & one already needed a not-cheap tooth extraction.
but on the other hand there are pictures like this that remind me it’s not actually much of a trade-off & the benefits of having these two for a split second far outweighs any hassle that comes up over time.
