There are a lot of cat owners on this site so you fit in well. 🙂
I know exactly what you mean about children. I don’t have children either but I love the kids in my family because I can play with them. I certainly couldn’t be responsible for a child’s upbringing or welfare on a long term basis. Yikes!!
I know what you mean about maturity. I look in the mirror and there is a definite mismatch between the face I see staring back at me and the age that I feel (mentally at least). It’s quite odd. I suppose that’s good though. If I thought I looked the age I feel then I’d be delusional which would be worse than being ADD. That is, unless I believed my delusions in which case I’d maybe be really happy. Oh dear……maybe stopping the meds was a bad idea……..
