I view pets in the same way I view children and lovers: They’re great when someone else has to take care of them.
Not that they lack their charms. I just find all three groups draining after a while and need my Me Time to rebalance. I don’t envy parents in any way, shape, or form. And I salute them for being willing to put in the time and effort to (hopefully) make better human beings than they are to populate the world with. May Superman grant you all his blessings.
As for pets: Fuck all that shit-scooping and fur covering everything you own.
Lovers? I shall say no more.
