Thursday Thoughts

Rules for Non-Pet Owners Who Visit and Like to Complain About Our Pets:

1. They live here. You don't.

2. If you don't want hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. (That's why they call it "fur"niture.)

3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.

4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is short, hairy, walks on all fours, and does not speak clearly.


Remember: Dogs and cats are better than kids because they: eat less, don't ask for money all the time, are easier to train, usually come when called, never drive your car, don't hang out with drug-using friends, don't smoke or drink, don't worry about having to buy the latest fashions, don't wear your clothes, don't need a gazillion dollars for college, and if they get pregnant, you can sell their children.

I love this post! And I am in complete agreement, too. Oh, except for the part about not having to buy them the latest fashions...

AMEN!

dino, egypt, & the kits said...

That's why we're allowed to do anything we want. "Within reason," whatever that means.

LOL that is great! My daddy would have to agree with Daisy. He think my kitty fashion is starting to get expensive. ~Queen Snickers

There's a hairball on my carpet said...

Amen to that!

What angers me as well is when someone comes to mine and my pets home and expects us to put up with their unruly, bratty children and yet I'm supposed to lock my pets away somewhere so the company doesn't have to tolerate my animals.
