I do and you don't speak for me.



I apologize and amend my statement to "And thus, I did not even bother to care that you did not read it".


And Thus the cycle continues until one of us could care less(which is me, gtfo)

As long as you have the money and the time to take care of a pet, it is okay to have one. If you can't manage that, you shouldn't meddle in the life of another. I like pets. But it will be a while before I can afford the time to take care of a dog properly. Until then, I will chase my birds by where they drop and hope I can find them without a bird dog.

I love cats, pet them, groom them, lick them, massage them, play with them, sleep together in bed, and gently stroke them to sleep. Am I right guys?! Guys?!

Close,
pet them, be groomed by them while trying to type on the keyboard, scratch their head, have them claw your hand trying to get at a toy, try to sleep in bed while they paw your face.... At least my cats ^.^

I don't mind pets. Dogs or cats.

I just wish our cat wouldn't scratch up everything except his scratching post. Carpets, door frames, the (once) fine German leather couches, the rubber mat in front of the sink... everything except what he's actually supposed to scratch.

Technically, WE are the pets.

My cats are spoiled rotten to the core.

*Cat tree, toys everywhere, boxes to play in, bags to pounce on, fresh catnip, big back yard full of grass.
*Neighborhood guarantees safety from cars & there's no dogs.
*Very expensive grain-free low-starch cat food. Our cats haven't thrown up on the carpet since.
*Two floors of cushioned surfaces. Carts can sit anywhere they want (& will if they're not supposed to).
*Distilled water. The cats just seem to like it more.
*Self-cleaning cat boxes.
*3 human slaves to give them hour-long massages whenever they want.

Indy is a puny weak little runt. If she had to fend for herself, she'd die in a matter of days.

If my cats weren't so noisy, I'd let them sleep in my room. When I wake up, they're at my door to greet me, then they follow me everywhere.

The only time they're a nuisance is when I get back from grocery shopping; they keep hiding in the cloth bags.

They were pretty good this years at christmas; no missing ornaments, no bows ripped on the packages.

I bought a Steam Vac for potty-training kittens & elderly pet accidents. I seems to hardly use it for anything but cleaning up my own coffee spills.

I think it depends. If you enjoy animals, are independent and capable, have enough money and are willing to put in time and care then go for it. The bond that you form with an animal when you raise it from its birth is one that you will cherish a lot more than you would expect.
I think if you train your animal when they are young things are a lot easier on you as the owner. If you're living alone they can definitely provide you with companionship.

Personally, I like both dogs and cats but would rather get a dog. When I move out (likely this year) I'll probably still be tight on money so I'll save up and give it a year or so before buying a pet myself.

It depends on how they're treated obviously, however my dad owns this bird and I honestly hate the idea that the bird has to spend its life in such a small cage when it SHOULD be able to fly the skies wherever it wants.

I also have a dog, but at least she gets to move around the house and go out for walks and such. The bird just spends its time in my fathers office/cage only able to look out a window and eat every day. Also, its an African grey, and they live a LONG time. What a long, boring life that bird will most likely have.

I rather have a puppy than a baby in my home. Just my personal opinion.

Dogs have Owners,
Cats have Staff.

I can say having two cats is a big hassle when you're busy with school, study etc. But post-grad they're your best friends.

Don't like them, don't want them and definitely don't want to have to deal with the whole vet bills situation. A lot of money saved by not getting a pet. I just don't see the logic in getting one.


Pets can have VERY positive effects on the owner's life. Pets can help with depression and they make great companions who never want anything but love. I can see what you're saying though. In all reality, they can be a lot of trouble at times and REALLY stick a knife through your wallet, especially having to take care of them in their final years where their health just sucks. But if you like animals and have the money and resources to have an animal, no reason not to.

OK, I had to say it. In reality, all you really have to do is check my avatar to see my preference. :)


Cats are awesome! I have two.

Hmm having a pet takes responsibility and more payments. So no I do not want one since I have to take care of it especially if it's a dog. You have to take it to a walk in winter so no just no.....

Cats sure are expensive....I bought a month's worth of wet & dry grain-free food for 3 cats....$108. It was only $60 last month. What happened????
