    Animals Aren'T Malicious W/ O A Reason!

    I do pick animals over people hands down! Of course there are wonderful people out there but they're the exception! The average person wants to show you how much better they are than you by being in a bigger house they're in hock for to their eyeballs! Drive a car they can't...

    Animals and Their Keepers.

    Most Often, Yeah.

    They don't pick at my faults. When I think they're staring at me, usually its because they want the ball in my hand or are contemplating crawling into my lap. They listen.
