My pet-less pal took a trip down to LA last week, and was totally smitten by a certain kitten that was for sale outside of a store. She told me that she hadn't even considered adopting a pet before, but something about that particular cat made her want to put it on the next flight home with her (think Samantha and Baby in the Sex and the City movie). Unfortunately, she didn't take kitty home, now totally regrets her decision, and thinks about "what could have been" every day since. Aww!

I've been known to come close to an adoption breakdown, but I've never had that feeling of regret for not adopting. Besides, I have North at home already! Have you ever come face-to-face with an animal you didn't take home, but later on knew you should have?
