Ok, there's really only one BIG reason: Temptation.
I saw another cute old 1966 Ajo Camper for only $600.
It it in much better condition than the other 2 that I looked at and $600 is a great price. But since my renters haven't paid yet I don't have any cash. That's a good thing because that cash is for the mortgage not for campers! I decided a truck camper (the kind that sit on the back of a truck) would be better anyway. That way my cat could ride in the back. She couldn't ride in a pull behind camper. I mean she could but with a truck camper she would have access to the truck through the window. Who knows what she would be doing in the pull behind camper. Probably going crazy and shredding the curtains.
My other expensive temptation is the puppies. The people from the animal shelter list the dogs that are on the E-list which is the death list. Those that are too old, too young, too sick or have been at the shelter too long if it is over-crowded, get on the list. The rescue groups try to grab the dogs off the list before they are put down but they can only take them if they have foster homes for them. Then all the foster dogs go to PetSmart/Petco on the weekends to be adopted.
This momma and 8 tiny puppies were on the list today. I added up the cost of creating a dog friendly area in my mobile home and it was around $300. That would be for a doggy door to an outside kennel and a crate indoors. I would have to hook up the air conditioner and section off a small area for them to hang out inside. I would have the puppies for about 10 weeks. Puppies get adopted pretty quickly. The question is, how long would I have the momma dog? It could be forever. This idea will take more research but I like research. It keeps me busy.
