when i was trying to convince mike (mr. only-2-kitties) that we should adopt stimpy, i worked on him for 2 weeks i think. we had the pity thing going--stimpy had a bad blockage (i think previous owners fed him something horrendous like special kitty dry
). so he was recovering, had to have the same considerations for food as my other 2 cats, and not many people at a shelter are interested in 1. an adult cat, 2. an adult with special considerations 3. any cat with "urinary" anything on their card.
so, i got him to the point that he said "we'll talk about it". that was when i knew
i was in. he wasn't saying a flat out no. so i filled out the application.
well, part of the adoption process is the family has to meet the kitty. stimpy sure seemed to know what to do. he had mike so convinced, mike said "i guess 3 cats are ok".
so, that's how i convinced mr. only-2-kitties we should have a 3rd cat. other posters are right, it helps if the hubby thinks it's his decision. (i need an evil grin icon
also, part of the agreement was he got to name stimpy. would that help convince your hubby?
