Why Would You Get A Pet If You Weren't Going To Love It?
I love my pets- when I take ownership of an animal, I make a commitment to love and care for that animal for the rest of its life. This is what getting a pet *is*- being responsible for the well-being and happiness of a living creature for as long as it lives. When my pet gets sick or injured, it goes to the vet immediately, and if it needs medication or surgery, I may not be able to afford it, but I find a way to provide for my pet, even if it means borrowing money or trying to appeal to friends and family to help. I even make arrangements with friends and family members to ensure that in the incident of my death, my animals would be cared for and not shoved into some pound. I love my pets, they are family members to me.
