Now to Love
Have you ever really wanted something? We mean, really wanted something? We're betting it's not even close to the amount this delightful 13-year-old girl wanted a cat.
She was so enthusiastic about her mission for a furry friend that the little girl created a "wall of sorrow" to guilt her father into buying the family a cat. And guess what?
We still have time to learn some tips from this bargaining queen for our own Christmas presents — at least people online certainly think so.

"This is because of you" reads the red marker, pointing to a tear coming from the cat's eye. (Photo Credit: Now to Love)
Although she could have gone the route of a PowerPoint presentation, the little girl chose to rock the paper guilt trip, which gives the entire project more of a touching, personal quality.
Perhaps that was the breakthrough, because the family are now the happy owners of a new cat. But her dad doesn't look pleased with the outcome!

The wall of sorrow was shared on Twitter by the girls' older sister, Danielle, with the original caption:
"My little sister made a "wall of sorrow" to make my dad feel bad so she could get a cat.. well it worked"

Her work has inspired others in their quest for fur babies and taken some on a walk down memory lane. This could be the best use of a vision board we've ever seen.
Never underestimate the power of tenacity, hard work, and of course, the extreme strength of the child/parent guilt trip.
