Most times, you decide you're ready for a pet and that it's time to go out and finally get one. You prepare, you think of what you want, you look at pictures and learn, and then you hope that the one you choose will be happy to be with you. But other times... you don't get to choose. Sometimes, it's the pets that choose you.
The little stories you're about to read are so heartwarming they'll make you melt. Thank you to imgur user Rammsteinstochter for collecting them. "Heartless" and "unfeeling" cats choosing the humans that they want to keep for themselves. "This one," the cats say. "I think this one is cute enough... and will give me food."
If you have any heart-meltingly cute stories of your own to share, come tell us about them in our Facebook group: ICanHas Storytime.
