No, when I adopt a pet I'm in it for the long haul, good or bad.
Well I have known some people who got a pet who ended up just really being wrong for them or their household. It happens, and it's fine as long as it's not a repetitive thing with the same person, and as long as you take the time to find them a good home instead of just throwing them in a shelter or dumping them on the side of the road. I see wayyy too much of that :(
Actually now that I think of it I did end up with a turtle and after I kept him for a few years I decided I really just wasn't a turtle person and wasn't giving him the attention he needed so I found him a better home. Haha :)
Ughh I know! It's especially bad where I live. It's totally okay for all dogs to get thrown outside in the dead of winter or the scorching summer and they go their entire lives with NO vet care or fence to protect them from passing cars. There's one family I've known for about 5 years now, and they've brought like 15 animals home... and only ONE of them is still alive (the one they just got a few months ago)... it makes me sick. You should need a license to adopt animals lol
Oh, and after all those animals, I'm fairly positive they haven't bought a single bag of dog/cat food. Ever.
Yep, all of my sisters cats!!
No, I never have.
Even though I love cats, I had one years ago that I had to adopt out, a big orange tom and he was a destructive m-f. My wife took him from a coworker when he was about a year old, and we held out as long as we could, but the bastard was so destructive, he ended up living in the ba<x>sement. I decided that he deserves a better life, so adopted him out to some neighborhood girls who wanted a cat. They got more than they bargained for!
I think of pets as children- what you get is just what you love unconditionally and deal with until they die.
Yes 2 brothers cats........they acted wild and I spent $ on one and she gave the other one for free............stupid me. I had them 3 weeks that was it, I called the breeder and gave them back..........
My dad got a rat terrier for me, and that dog was a little nuts. He would race around and around and around the house at lightning speed. He was also a big chewer and didn't know how to play without doing that sort of thing. It was my mom who actually suggested that we find the dog a new home. I didn't have it for very long. We ended up giving it to a family that lived in the country and could give it lots of room to RUN.
