One of the things you’ll miss most when you’re in Toronto is having pets. It will be slightly difficult to adjust from being surrounded by pets to suddenly not having any around at all.
True, during your first year, you weren’t allowed to keep any pets since you lived on campus but since you’ll be living off campus soon with Rafaella, it is likely she won’t mind if you decide to adopt a teensy kitten.
You’ll think that you’ll be okay without any pets around but will realise that you feel pet-deprived especially when you visit Lynne and spend more time with her cat instead of with her. The loneliness of not having pets will persist when you’ll try to tame the squirrels that clamber up and down the pear tree on the patio by leaving store-bought nuts for them. When the raccoon activates the motion sensor light at night, you’ll jump and open your curtains just to catch a glimpse of a furry animal.
So, if Rafaella is okay with you keeping a pet, go ahead and get a kitten. It’ll be a good decision, you’ll see 🙂
