People are suspicious of others who admit to not care for children and animals. There are animal-people, and there are children-people, and I am neither of those. I have technically been a cat-owner since 2004, yet I spent many of those first years saying that I was only their foster owner. Left to my own devices, I would not choose to own pets. I donít like being restricted by someone elseís schedule and needs. I donít want and wonít have my own children. I love to borrow other peopleís Ė to play with and return, so I can regain my freedom.
