EJ told me again the other day that he wants to have a pet. He already knows that we cannot have one because we live in an apartment and pets are not allowed.
But just to go along with him, I asked him what kind of pet he wants to have. He said, he'd like a cat and a guinea pig.
I think this was brought on by seeing my friend's pets in her house. My friend has 7 (or is it 9?) dogs, 6 (or is it 7?) cats, guinea pigs (i don't know how many, but definitely more than 5), 2 rabbits, turtles, chicken and roosters. EJ saw my friend's guinea pigs and he was so enamored with the cute little ones.
I would love to get one or even a couple for EJ. It can teach him how to be responsible. But for now, it's not possible.
And to be honest, it would mean added responsibility for me which I cannot handle right now. Imagine going to a VetDepot for check-ups, getting pet medications from vetdepot, etc, etc. I just have too much in my plate right now.
But one day, we will have a pet. A dog probably and even some guinea pigs.
