I'm not a pet owner. I don't hate pets, it's just I don't like them to have around because no matter how clean they are, they still smell. LOL! Having a pet also takes a lot of time and commitment because it is actually not easy to take care of them. When one have a pet, one takes on the responsibility of seeing to their welfare all the time. If one isn't sure that one can't really take good care of a pet, then one should not get one because in the end, it will be the pet who will suffer.

right!!I completely agree with your last lines that it really takes a lot of efforts to bring up a pet at home, but trust me having one at home is altogether an amazing and wonderful experience. When i come home in the evening from work, the way she greets and welcomes me on the stairs of my gate, that five minutes extreme love of hers takes away my whole day stress and tensions. Can't really describe in words!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am a pet owner. I have a 10 year old Pomeranian that I have had since he was 6 weeks old and I also have a hamster. We have had the hamster for about 6 months now, I think. He is a little doll baby. I love both of my pets like children.

My cat, William Wallace - This is not my pet, but my domestic animal, William Wallace.
I am not a pet owner. I strongly oppose the idea of having a pet. A pet is an animal that has no other meaning than to please its "master". I find that a typically human behavior, which I dislike. I do have, on the other hand domestic animals: chicken, geese, a pig and a cat. The cat IS NOT a pet, I don't keep it from doing anything he desires or leaving the yard and leaving his life... The chicken, geese and pig I keep for food.

Before my sister and I was a pet owner. So love them. but when my sister moved out of town, we had to send our pets in my parents house because I can't take care of them myself because I have school. So whenever I go home, that's the time I take good care of them.

If you dont count my husband and kids I have a dog and fish lol. The puppy who is 5 months old is part cattahoula and miniature collie. He is a handful but starting to settle down now. We have a small tank of tropical fish, with a bunch of snails too, my kids just adore them. We had a betta fish last year, name sapphire max, but he passed away, my son was broken hearted. By the way the dogs name is Krypto, you know from Krypto the superdog, aka supermans dog. My kids named him I would have preferred bat dog but they laughed at me.

I have a beagle "Bailey", I have a pure white cat "Sarge" and a black and white cat "Leo". I think animals help make your day full-filled.
