Dear Every Kitten Who’s Ever Crossed My Way,
You looked at me with innocent eyes and I couldn’t help but melt. You were simply adorable in the most perfect way and I would just like to apologize for not being able to adopt you. It wasn’t you, it was me.
I have known you ever since you were born. You might have come to my home a hundred times. You sat outside while I fed you, petted you and picked you up. You have been with me even in my toughest times, never failing to show up. You were mine, but not really. I wasn’t able to take you in. It broke my heart when you weren’t allowed to come inside the house. My mother wouldn’t let us have pets. I wouldn’t mind the responsibility, but my mother says there’s barely any space in the house and it takes a lot to handle a pet. She isn’t wrong. But I still tend to feel I’m letting you down.
You would make an amazing pet. You don’t react when the neighbor’s kids trouble you. You never mind when my sister cuddles in a way that almost suffocates you. You love us very much and you could have made us happier, but there’s only so much I can do.
You see, because of having a job and responsibilities, I can’t stay at home full-time. I really wish I could give you a home, but it won’t be feasible and I couldn’t feel worse about it. I see your face every time you have to go your own way after spending time with us. I love your visits, but I hate seeing you go away because you can’t make it inside. I’m not sure how many years it’s been since our rendezvous has been going on, but you never fail to come by the house every few days.
Not just you, there have been many more kittens. In my locality, at my college, and at my workplace. You sat in my lap and let me play with you, but I would feel horrible because that would be the end of it. You have been angels in my life and I only wish I could do more for you.
I wish you get a loving home soon. Someone who can give you all the luxury and someone who pampers you like anything. Kittens like you deserve all the niceness that this world has to offer.
My Heart Lies With You No Matter Where You Go.
