Personal Narrative Essay : My Love To Love With A Cat

Improved Essays
It was when I was eleven years old that I first got to spend time with a cat. I was at a friend’s place to hang out and was informed that he had a pet. Years of watching television and the media told me that these furry beasts were the cutest things I’d laid my eyes on, and so I embarked throughout my friend’s house to find it. When I finally found it, it was everything I’d imagined. I spent more time playing with the cat that day than with my friend, and observed where it was at any given time. It was at that moment that I fell in love with cats. Every time I saw one, I would go out of my way to start playing with it, and I started begging my parents for a cat. Initially, they said no, and who could blame them? Cats were a great responsibility akin to taking care of a child. Cats live their own lives, needing attention and care. A year of pestering, however, got me the result I wanted - we went to the Toronto Humane Society to look for a cat in March of 2013. We had decided on the week of March break; my parents would be at work but I would be alone in the house, so there wouldn’t be any times when the cat was alone initially. When we first reached the Humane Society, my eyes lit up as six of seven cats were in a large, dimly lit playroom, relaxing. I immediately started playing with them, petting and allowing them to get comfortable around me. I had never seen so many cats all at once, all minding their own business. At that very moment, I saw paradise. We were later

    I believe there’s nobody didn’t like a cat. I’m pretty sure that everyone love cat. If I were a cat, my life would be greater. I can totally see why a cat would want to nestle up in a pile of fresh-from-the-dryer laundry. I suppose we could always do that too, but then we’d worry about wrinkles.…

    I opened my eyes unwillingly and found that my cat, Sam, was trying to use his furry paws to wake me up. I then took a quick glance at the clock; it was already eleven at night. I had done nothing but sleeping for six whole hours, while I still had tons of homework to finish by tomorrow. But before all, I had to feed Sam as well as myself. Both of us were awfully…

    “Cats are dumb!” or “dogs are cooler because WOOF WOOF!” While these are clearly turning the tides and making me feel backed in a corner, who could forget about the ever so strong… “because I said so?” Did you hear that? That’s the sound of all my researched non-logical fallacy statements turning into glass and shattering at my feet! Ha, just kidding. While I’ve argued a lot about why I should have a cat, I’ve rarely heard any actual good point against it. The strongest argument I’ve heard is the “You don’t take care of your animals!” argument.…

Our apartment complex did not allow dogs and that is all he wanted was a dog. He is actually allergic to cats, so you can imagine how difficult this was. At first I was always bringing it up and explaining to him that cats are easy to take care of, they love you unconditionally, and they are very entertaining.…
