It may not be politically correct, but the truth is, lots of people prefer a kitten to a baby. It's not that babies aren't wonderful - it's just that kittens have their distinctive advantages. So ... here are my top ten reasons why having a kitten is better :-)...
Veterinarians have evening hours
Your kitten won't be able to disturb the whole movie theater with its crying. Hell, you don't even have to take the kitten with you, and if you don't, you don't even have to worry about whether or not the sitter is available tonight
Your kitten won't grow out of those cute but expensive clothes within three months
Kittens look cute if they haven't had a bath this month
You probably don't have to lie awake nights wondering how you are going to finance your kitten's college (or high school) education
No one will accuse you of being an unfit mother if you don't to breast-feed your kitten
No one will accuse you of perversion or sexual abuse if you fondle your kitten
Dan Quayle can't accuse you of destroying the moral fabric of the country if you aren't married to the father of your kitten. In fact, nobody will ever ask you if you know who the father is
No one will question your abilities to function normally at your job when they hear you just got a kitten
And the Number One Reason I Prefer Kittens To Babies...
You only have to change a litter box once a day!
