Being a responsible pet owner – Part 4

My thoughts on being a responsible pet owner are inspired by the daily news reports of so many pet owners who have been neglecting their pets.

I often wonder if these same cruel people have children and if so just what kind of parents are they ?

Animals are for the most part fairly helpless creatures ,much like babies !

If you are going to be a pet owner be sure that you are going to be committed to caring for your pet.

They will need to be fed and watered daily, if not more often. As all other living things !

They will need your kindness as well. A little attention will go along way.

Animals are not just cute and you should not have one just because they are cute.

You should have a pet if you want an addition to your family and you are going to care for him/her as such.

All Pets need a warm clean place to thrive as well as food and fresh water along with tender loving care.

I have a dog and a cat both require a substantial amount of care, on the other hand I also have an aquarium full of fish that are simply pretty to look at however they do not require much care.

I know Those of you who are dedicated caring pet owners have room in your heart for your pets and those awful pet owners in the news have no heart at all it seems.

Why on earth would anyone want to neglect a helpless creature of any kind is beyond my comprehension.

I think one way to stop this type of cruelty to animals is for there to be some sort of mandatory monitoring of pet owners implemented.

Perhaps social workers for dogs would work.

Either a pet owner has to bring their pet in to a pet clinic for inspection every so often or maybe a traveling pet doctor could do house calls !

Pretty extreme huh ?

yet the cruelty to pets is often extreme.

Maybe a back ground check is in order, maybe we need to screen potential pet owners and seek recommendations from neighbors.

Please, if you are not a compassionate person do not become a pet owner.

That will be your first step to becoming compassionate and it will spare a lot of unnecessary harm to the innocent pets of the world !
