How do I convince my parents to allow me to get an emotional support animal?
We already have 2 cats and 2 dogs, sop they don't see why I would want another cat. But the reasoning is because none of our animals really spend time with me, so I want a kitten that can grow up adapted to the idea of spending a majority of it's time around me (I want it to associate me as it's owner). Additionally, I'll be going off to college in about 8 months, and they're extremely against me taking the cat with me (ESA are allowed in dorms, I did some research). Because of this, they do not want to have to take care of the cat when I leave.
If anyone has any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it. No matter what I say, I can't seem to convince my dad. My mom seems a bit easier to convince, but the whole process has been very draining.
