    If someone told people that they wanted to have a cat, they would most likely get told..
    "Are you sure? They're a big responsibility, they're expensive" etc.

    If they told them that they wanted a baby I would most likely get told
    "What baby names are you thinking of? I'm happy for you, have you got everything ,you need?" etc.


    I don't understand this...
    Both children and cats are expensive.
    Both children and cats need to be looked after for 18+ years.
    Both are a huge life changer!

    I don't know who that is.
    This hasn't got anything to do with the thread topic.

    This is a double standard a lot of people don't know about...

    I totally agree. Not enough people get told that having a kid is a huge ****in responsibility. Parenthood shouldn't be gone into lightly. And honestly I don't think most people are cut out for the responsibility of a kid.

    You're right. Many people have kids without really thinking it through or being able to provide for them. Meanwhile, there are loving couples who are able to support a child and would love a baby, who either never get one or have to wait years because of how terrible this country's adoption system is.
