I’ve tried for years to convince them, but they always come up with some sort of reason.
I’ve done my homework on taking care of cats, grooming, supplies, litter, litter box, food, costs, etc.
I already have a goldfish at home and I do a good job taking care of it.
The only two reasons (IMO) my parents don’t want to adopt a cat is because they’re afraid of how depressed I’ll be when it dies and the costs.
My parents have owned pets before in their childhood lives, such as dogs, cats, fish, birds, and turtles.
I nearly “bombarded” my dad with information on taking care of cats and the supplies needed. He seemed very interested and said that he didn’t care about the costs. My mom is the tough one.
Any ideas on how to convince them, especially my mom?
I help around the house a lot. I fold my laundry, do all of my homework, make my bed, wash dishes, set up/ clean the dinner table, vacuum my room, and occasionally mop/ sweep the floor.
Plus, my parents do not make deals.
(Tried it, very bad idea.)
