Sunday Post: To Keep Or Not To Keep A Pet?

The question arises in the family where one of the family member asks the elders of the house before bringing in a pet. The answer is somehow considered to be mutual whereas, the answer should be thought over and over again in order to make the correct decision. First of all most of the people make mistakes and that is not deciding together whether to keep a pet or not. It is very essential to understand that PETS are not for entertainment neither a toy to play with. The animals are very emotional, and attached with their owners as they take them as family and that is what they have until the end of their time. Most families do take in account to sit down and think over how would they work out their time around a pet. Having a pet is a difficult task for those who would own for the first time. Before reading on this article I would like you to visit my previous Article of Want To Be A Pet Parent, where you would learn how to keep a pet and what things you need to consider before having one. Always remember that Animals are just like children, they also need the same time, affection, care and love from you as your child does, they also have their needs and you do need to take care of them throughout your lifetime because this is what you would be volunteering to.

Here is the list below which you should consider before thinking about adding a furry friend to your family.

1- Be prepared with the breed and type of an Animal that you choose as a pet;

2- Be careful with the treatment of your children with pets as with the consequences, Animals are not to be blamed if your child bothers them, a good parenting is keeping an eye on your pet and training them what is good and bad;

3- Vet visits would come along, regular checkups, annual vaccinations, deworming and grooming;4

4- Monitor their diet, as you would have to watch how far their health is improving;

5- Weather plays a vital role in the health of the Animal so it is necessary to check which breed and characteristic are your willing to take care of through your lifetime.

If you have these pointers ready in your head then you’re all good otherwise it is always advised that it is good to sit together and do a proper homework before getting yourself a Pet, because we are not talking about a Toy, we are concerned about a Lifetime responsibility of an Animal.

Excited To Have A Furry Friend? Here Is What You Need To Know!

This is the First question that should arrive in your mind when you think about having a furry friend in your life. What most people do is that they simply go bonkers over the arriving of their pets in the initial days and later once they are over with their cuteness and start considering as a liability then they start to plan on how to leave their pet or give it to a shelter home. Ouch! This thought really breaks my heart.

It is always recommended to first be mentally prepared for a lifetime responsibility because here we are discussing about a Life and that too a four legged pet. This is not an easy job neither it is something that can be taken care of easily, you have own up the responsibility and make sure that you are taking care of your pet whole-heartedly. Why is that, when we say ‘lifetime responsibility’ majority of the people start thinking about it as if they didn’t know or they don’t know what they were planning like how would their life go in which direction once a lifetime pet arrives. Woah! This is something that everyone of you need to think about. Pets are beautiful and are a responsibility, their meals, health, annual vaccinations, care, grooming, walks and so on is involved therefore, it is said to think broadly about it. I know somebody who recently rescued a Kitty from his garden and later rescued another kitten who was a tiny baby and was found a bit hurt and looked as if the mother cat left her behind. So that person took in the kitten and kept her warm after checking out thoroughly, he wasn’t able to find his mother cat.

Now after around 2months, he has an older cat, who has adopted that (then injured) kitten and bought a Puppy around 35 days old!! I mean seriously!!! When I got to know about it, I was a bit stunned and a bit upset that how would he manage. But guess what, after whole 4months, he is now taking care of a grownup Cat who has very well adopted the Kitty, who has gone healthy🧿 and a beautiful Pup (Labrador)🧿🧿 now the house is no more a house but turned into a mini-zoo. This what happens when you rescue one animal and then the chain begins.

Like I always say, “No one literally rescues anybody, as the Animals make us rescue ourselves only”. Now this is another way of looking at things, those who get it would agree to what I said.
