A friend of mine has a bunch of kittens she can't keep and if she doesn't find homes for them she will have to take them to a shelter. There is one that I really would like a sweet little 3 month old girl. Right now I already have a dog, a parakeet, and over 30 chickens, which I take care of by myself and pay for all feed and such. As a family we also have 4 other dogs, and a cat (and 3 sisters, do they count as animals?). I have not asked yet but I am sure my dad won't be all for it and my mom will go with whatever my dad says. How do you guys think is the best way for me to go about asking without a flat out "no," (he has been known to do this before on other requests, i.e. parrot, rabbit, hampster, and horse.) I'll take any advice, I'd really like to save one of these kittens from going to a shelter.
