The worst thing about living alone and having to travel so much is that I can’t really have a pet. Even as independent as cats can be, it would not be fair to any animal to be at my house for long periods of time alone. If I had a dog, the poor thing would be in the kennel more than at my house, and that’s not fair to either of us.
I used to have cats when I was married to my first husband. My second husband didn’t like cats, so we had a dog. I like both and would love to have a house with a big yard and lots of animals again some day.
