Rocks make great pets and they are definitely better than having a cat. Rocks are so great because they will not urinate or defecate in your home or even outside. You could cuddle with a rock and won't have to worry about crushing it. You could also read out loud to a rock and it won't judge you for stuttering on words. Having a rock as a pet would be inexpensive whereas owning a cat, you would have to buy kitty litter, cat food, toys, food bowls, a bed that it might not even use, a collar, and a leash. Rocks do not eat or drink, they do not need leashes because they are not wild animals, they do not mark your home as their own territory, and the rock's only playmate is you. Therefore, everyone should have a lovely rock as a pet rather than buying an expensive cat.

I accept.

I shall define some terms.

Great (adjective): markedly superior in character or quality
http://www.merriam-webster.com...

Pet (noun): any domesticated or tamed animal that is kept as a companion and cared for affectionately.
http://dictionary.reference.com...

Character (noun): moral or ethical quality
http://dictionary.reference.com...

Rock (nout): Relatively hard, naturally formed mineral or petrified matter; stone.
http://dictionary.reference.com...
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Con claims that a rock is a "great pet". I will be arguing that rocks are not "great" and are not "pets"

>According to my definition of the word "great", something great must at least have character.
>According to my definition of "character", something has character if it has morality or ethics.
>According to my definition of "rock", rocks do not have morality or ethics.
>Things that do not have morality or ethics are not great.
>>Rocks are not great.

>According to my definition of the word "pet", something must be an animal to be a pet.

>According to my definition of the word "rock", rocks are not animals.
>Things that are not animals are not pets.
>>Rocks are not pets.
