So DH finally said I can get a new kitten. I could tell he was softening lately.
I think (and I could be wrong) that this is about another baby. I know he thinks (true or not) that his dad got his mom a new pet whenever she wanted another baby.
I'm conflicted. Sure, I want a kitten. Goddess Kitty isn't getting any younger. She's 11 years old. She's in good health and still acts like a kitten sometimes, but she will die, probably within the next 5 years. It would be nice to have another cat to soften the blow when she dies. The boys want a kitten of their own (like I'd let any kitten be their own).
But I don't want one if the idea is to replace my desire for a daughter.
