I am considering adopting a kitten This coming Spring. I already have a place where I am going to choose one and I want it when it is small so I can train it  properly. When I go to choose one, I will wait until it comes to me. That way I know we will bond.

Pets can be a lot of company, and since I live alone, I will choose a kitten, because although I am wheelchair bound, I will be able to care for it. If I get a dog, I won't be able to as well. 

The place where I live is a government rent subsidized apartment complex for the elderly and disabled that has a lot of rules and regulations, but if I was able to, I'd have a cat a ferret, a bird and a dog then I'd have all the entertainment I would need. Oh well, at least I will be able to have one pet again anyway.🐈😊.

I think adopting a kitten is a wonderful idea! However, as I've experienced in the last thee months of having one, it's definitely hard work keeping up with and cleaning up after him. (He is a domestic long hair. To be precise, a ragdoll! Tracks everywhere, makes our small apartment smell bad...) 

Have you ever considered fostering kittens? I think under your circumstances this would be an extremely fitting thing to try out! I don't know if you are aware (and I apologize if you are) but most shelters put down kittens they receive if they are 8 weeks old or younger. There are some great videos about fostering kittens on Youtube. This is a great channel for learning about kitten fostering: https://www.youtube.com/kittenlady Also, her videos are adorable. Definitely fun to watch, as well! 

If I had the time, I'd absolutely foster kittens. It'd be like what I do at work- only the babies are tinier and fuzzy. ❤️

This is my little "Blessing." Her eyes are the same color as her orange fur. She's a little cockeyed, but so am I. She's very playful and mischievous, and everyone who has seen her so far says she is adorable and funny. One of my caregivers even told me she wanted one.

Wish I could get a cat or two, but it isn't a possibility right now.  Hope yours fits the bill exactly. She's a cutie! Did you name her 'Blessing'?

Yes I did, and she's even more entertaining, intelligent, and adorable than I expected.
