Diary Of A 5-Year-Old: No More Babies


Our cat has to go and see the animal doctor. Animal doctors are called vetina.....vetarin.....vetanar....vets. They work in hospitals specially for animals. She is a girl cat which means if she makes friends with a boy cat they can make babies. Baby cats are called kittens. Kittens are fluffy and cute and I want one so much but mummy says our cat is having an operation so she can't have babies. The animal doctor will take her girl bits away so kittens can't get into her tummy. I think that's mean but she says it's for the best. But why?

Emily from kindergarten says her mummy had an operation too and now she can't have babies either because she doesn't have room for one in her belly anymore. I looked really hard yesterday but you can't tell. I hope my mummy doesn't have that operation because I want a brother to tell what to do. Emily has five brothers.

Maybe mummy doesn't like the cat. But I think she probably does because she always says the cat is less trouble than I am because she cleans herself and doesn't ask for money (duh, cats can't speak though can they?). Anyway, what if she doesn't meet a boy cat she falls into love with? Mummy says you should only make babies with someone you fall into love with. I don't really know what love means but I think it's something to do with how you smell. And falling. Daddy told me I'll understand when I grow up. I hate it when they say that.

I think I'll hide the cat.
