How to convince someone to let me adopt a mouse.

Post by RandomMouseLover05 on Wed 12 Jul 2017, 8:47 pm

Okay that title is a little weird, but whatever. For the past, wow like three months, I have been wanting a mouse. I have done research ever since and two months later I finally asked the other people in my household. In my house I have three animals, a dog (Who actually has Addison's disease so he's a ton of works), a cat, and a betta fish. But the only reason I wasn't aloud to get a mouse was because he didn't want any other animals in this house. That was the only reason, so i've been trying to use facts and saying that he wouldn't even have to see the mouse, but nothing is working. (Of course my total responsibly, pay for everything and entertaining myself) So I can't really see the problem. Even someone is trying to convince him it's a good idea. So I was wondering how everyone else went about this and how I should try to. I've tried everything that I have thought off. (More then I listed) I know this is a weird question but OH WELL! Thanks for taking the time to read this random thing! <3

persistence

just don't let up

you could google how to be more persuasive and how to win arguments and things like that, just get better overall at understanding how to talk to people and sway them to your way of thinking.

On the mouse issue, just don't stop. Work out some sort of compromise, offer to do more chores or to pay more rent or whatever your situation is, on top of all the other things.

The key is to be persistent and to make it clear that you cannot be happy unless you get a mouse and that you would be happier with a mouse then they would be unhappy with you having a mouse. Explain how they are keeping you from living a fulfilling life and that your dreams and could be easily granted if they just let you get the mouse and that you would be a happier person willing to do more for them in return.

Persistence is key. It took me close to 2 years to get my mouse. Are any of the other pets in the household specifically tour responsibility and yours alone? Do lots and lots of research, try writing about it. My friend wrote a 60 page care article before she got her hamster, show your parents that you want the mouse bad enough. Try doing other things around the house, and show interest in your activities and school. Mice can live for three years, so if you have a habit of losing interest in things quickly and your parents notice that, they might think you'd lose interest in a mouse only a few months after getting it. Also, try checking these out:
