What is the point in having pets?

They serve no purpose other than your own selfish ones. They are dirty and smelly, uncooth, disrespectful, stupid and expensive and people actually let these things sleep in bed with them. This is absolutely disgusting to me. These things are merely lower life forms that do not deserve to reside in my home.
Furthermore, what is up with people getting these things when they can barely afford to feed themselves or their children? People have their priorities screwed up.

  • Today, I agree! I have a cat that sneezes. Big loogies fly everywhere, all day. It is sickening, and the vet says he's fine. Sure, you live with the boogers then buddy! Sigh...but the kids love the disgusting little guy...

  • ASPCA: The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is an organization that saves animals: most of these animals are brought by the owners because they fail to notice that having a dog is a commitment and not a thing that you show off so they can't stand the animal and the poor pet is left with no choices but wait for someone else to take care of them.

    I'm so tired of people making businesses breeding pets but never realizing that animals deserve respect and a good home.

  • For some, pets can be benifical. Service dogs help people do daily activities that a lot of us take for granted. Pets can help with depression too.
    I know what you mean by some people having pets for their own selfish reasons when they cant afford them.
    Did you have a bad experience with a pet before, if you don't mind me asking?

  • Wow- I don't know about anybody else, but my dog has brought great joy to our family. We love her a lot and she does serve a little purpose for us, when my husband is out of town, she protects the house-lets me know if someone is here, or if someone is in the yard that she doesn't recognize. She is THE best dog and IS treated that way.

  • There are lots of reasons to have pets. But to each his own, I guess.

  • I guess if you don't have a pet you'll never know. But from the sounds of it having a pet that loves you is the last thing you need.
