Has the seed been planted?

I've been cat sitting for about three months now, and this is my final night with Ms. Cai.


Over the past three months, I've begun to think of her as my cat. I'm really sad knowing that she'll be gone tomorrow. My friends keep asking me when I'm going to get a cat of my own. It's funny, but I always thought I'd have a cat by now, and I don't. One friend said today, "Okay, now the seed has been planted...you HAVE to get your own cat!"

Has the seed been planted? Should I get a cat of my own?
