Mom Keeps Saying She Wants A Dog Or A Cat

Mom Keeps Saying She Wants A Dog Or A Cat

Mom keeps saying she wants a cat or a dog. She thinks she can just go for a walk with the dog but it is determined she should not walk without someone else. I am not ready to take on the responsibility of a dog, maybe a cat. When I offer to take her to humane society to visit with the cats, she says she's not ready to make a decision. I know a cat would be a good companion for her. What is the best way to encourage this?

An animal & my mom was too much for me, mom would over feed , trip over etc. Bought a large stuffed dog , breed reminded her of my sister's dog. She sleeps with it, talks to it, carries it around like a pet. Best thing going! Also have smaller stuffed animal, pig , that snores. She is best in car with it & helps her nap by cuddling.

Maybe adopt an adult cat that is calm and cuddly. Make sure it is friendly and a lapcat, then just show up with it! A small dog is great, but a lot of care.

You could try fostering a cat; that's short term and you could get out of the committment if it doesn't work. Where are you located?

My husband loves our fur baby Chris. She's a Turkish Angora cat who we brought over from Cyprus when we repatriated. I keep him up-to-date with her latest doings. I find cats affectionate and easy to have around.
