I miss being looked at with wide eyes and feeling loved. I just want a warm body next to me on my bed. Since I know I'm not the only one who feels like that, and I just successfully took a large step in my relationship, I'll share with you some of the best tips I have to help you find your next best friend.

Here's the beautiful Orange Crush, who currently lives at Animal Rescue New Orleans. She's lovable enough to be a good substitute for my cat back at home, but she's fifty dollars and I unfortunately can't afford that right now with all her supplies. Also, I have roommates. Also, my dorm doesn't allow pets.
Cry about your ex (pets)
Here's my little baby from Oregon. I really miss having her fat belly move up and down as she purrs while laying on my stomach. She's the best.
Move on, and maybe commit a crime.
I stole a cat. Please do not tell any of the RAs or the RD in Wall. His name is Wednesday and I lured him in with treats. He will eventually love me and then I will invite everyone (except the RA's) into my dorm to pet him.
So there you have it. This is how you finesse a heart (or cat) if you're desperate AF to have pets again.
