Doesn't anyone else have NO interest in pets

I don't want pets. no dog no cats no hamsters none of it. They are about 2/3s the work of kids but about 1% of the return. They don't grow up have families, oneday take care of you, they don't laugh, smile well some do but it isn't the same. I'm just not in to it. I think fish would be ok but that is it. I like children I don't beleive in treating animals like they are human, which is not to say I think it is ok to treat them badly because I don't that is just not ok. I just don't want o share my house with them I feel the way I think alot of people who don't want children do they are ok if they don't live with me. Dose anyone else feel that way or and I a heartless person.

  • I am not really a big fan of animals. Maybe if I could get one that was already house trained. But I already have to potty train my son and train my hubby. LOL JK. And I like fish but I just kill them. We got a picture frame that is fish. They look like they swim in it. Pretty cool and my son loves it. And he cant be mean to it like he is to the animals.

  • Eh, don't worry about it. Some people just aren't "pet people" I have a dog and a cat (and fish) I adore them but luckily my cat is housetrained. I cannot stand litterboxes at all!

  • Well, one of our cats had been left in a cardboard box with his sisters and brothers in a construction site. Ours was the only one still alive. Our other cat my son found when some kids were throwing stones at her- she was so tiny that my son had to dropper feed her every few hours. He was trying to get her old enough for the human society to take, but then he brought her here and she hopped up onto my lap and fell asleep so my son and I looked at each other and decided she was home. So it's not that we are trying to have pets but that we can't stand to see them helpless.

  • I love animals but I can understand someone that doesn't feel the same way. Everyone is entitled to their own ideas on whether to have a pet or not. I prefer to have the love and compaionship of a 4-footed furry, but it's not a requirement--unless you want to live with me!

  • i dont think you're cold hearted but i am one of those who treats my dog as if she were one of my children. she does just as much for me and i do her. she protects me. you're just not into animals.

  • You are definitely entitled to your opinion. I have my babies and love all three of them!! My dog could be a "purse puppy" but she bites anyone momma & dad don't tell her are friends!! Gremmie, my cat was adopted outside of Albertson's. I f I didn't take her she would have gone to the pound and my twin, Nellie, my bearded dragon(she's as bitchy as I am) was supposed to be my son's but mom fell in love.
