I think it’s perfectly fair. Does your son like catz?
My son loves catz. His first pet was a kitten, and they had so much fun together.
We’ve always had catz and he has adopted them as his own...I told him he was the one who had to wear the cat hair at night, so if he wanted to put them under the covers, it was up to him!
One cat was named Beaker, after the Muppet character, and another was Sluggo.
He may even like the birdz, if they live long enough!
