Pets would not survive if we suddenly chucked them out into the wild. After being hand fed and kept safe for such a long time, forcing them back into the wild would be like killing them. Wild animals shouldn't be kept as pets, but domestic animals make no problems. If you think it's a waste of time and money, then don't buy them.
Cats in Hotter countries eg Italy is a higher amount of cats. Cats have adapted to Humans and in places where they are populated they need humans to keep them safe from diseases and Hunters Without them cats would suffer horribly. Yes they are properly wield animals to me who see no affection to human beings but humans help cats in long term
Im an ASD child,and when the rest of the world rejects me,where do i go? I go into my room with my dogs and cat,and play and snuggle with them for a long time. It is relaxing for me,enough to forget my troubles and go and have some fun with the outside world again. In short terms,they help me.
Why not ? Animals should be kept as pets. All they need is a little attention, our love and care. Who says to keep wild animals. We can keep tamed animals, like cats, dogs, fishes, rabbits etc.
Keeping animals as pets can be a source of cheering up our mood when we dull or depressed. Its good having them around as they are very lively!
Wild animals should be kept as pets. But if the owner of they wild animal can not take care of the animal it should be took for the owner and put some where safe. Like a zoo or put back in the wild. That is my choice on this subject.
I feel that as long as the pet isn't dangerous or harmful it is fine, i understand that they can cost allot to look after, but if you live alone a pet is an ideal companion, i would train my pets not to wreck the house :) and then they're absolutely fine!
Sometimes animals also need care and affection. They too have there own life; they have a right to live it in peace. They too have feelings and emotions. Animals love to stay with humans it makes them feel happy. We also need company sometimes and animals can fill that gap.
Pets may guard your house especially dogs and they help you if you have some problems by not speaking but by calming you!! It is because they have brains too and they like just copying what are you doing and if they saw you being kind to them they'll be also kind to you!!! You should treat them the way you want to be treated!!!If you don't have any friends or someone in your house but you only had yourself and your pet, your pet can give you unconditional love. It is llike they even love their owner than their selves!!!
Animals like to be pets. I have two dogs and neither of them would run away if we left the door open all day. Dogs are pack animals and they want to be with their pack. They will stay with their people because that is what they want to do. They are happy to be a pet.
Pets give you unconditional love and affection. It is said that dogs are the only animals that love someone else more than they love themselves, but the love doesn't stop there. Any pet can give you happiness and mental relief. Pets don"t judge you on the basis of your looks, race, gender or age, but just for who you are. Keeping pets and expecting them to make a difference in your life in not enough. They have to be well taken care of and given the love and companionship that you expect from them. You must treat them the way that you like to be treated. They must receive proper medication and food. Pets are mere domesticated animals, for most people, but are considered family to ones that posses them. Pets give you a sense of responsibility, that you may have never had before. They can prove to be good companion when you're lonely, and will surely be by your side no matter what. Pets, such as dogs, can help blind people walk and can guard houses too.
No, because they only bring problems and irritation with their stinky appearance and they don't bring anything good, just a waste of time and money. They are terrible creatures and all they deserve is torture. And yes, I do want animals to be used in experiments for OUR benefits, not theirs.
Do domestic pets such as dogs and cats really show us personal affection? Or do we just take their signs and facial expressions, their natural instinctive behaviours as what we perceive to be signs of affection? Yes, they may actually show some affection towards us but only because we have trained them to and the reason we have trained them is for our own pleasure. We believe we can do this because they are not as intelligent as us and that's true but we shouldn't be taking advantage of that fact. I totally believe in animals that help people: dogs that help the blind, deaf, had a stroke, police dogs, rescue dogs and general illnesses but that's as far as I believe animals, manly modern domesticated ones should be influenced by human beings.
For no, people abandon and abuse their pets, they need care, and do you know how they feel? When you left home, are they all alone? What do they eat? Do they feel bored? Yes, they are all alone, they feel bored, they can't eat. I went to SPCA and learnt a lot. Some pet owners put clothes and shoes on their pets. They will get itchy, have problems with their legs and hurt themselves. Its okay to put clothes on when you have the doctor's permission, like when they have less fur and need clothes to keep them warm. Lets put this in wild animals, dolphins. You see them very happy when they are performing, but its how their mouth is, they are sad, they get abused, hungered in circus. They are apart from their family... Please, don't go to the dolphin shows just for entertaining, there are plenty of things except for performances. If lesser people go, they might stop it because its not popular and we could save them! Please share this and make a difference!!!
No they should not be. Its not safe for us or the animals!! THERE WAS A GIRL IN CT WHO OWNED A CHIMP AND HE WAS NEVER VIOLENT BUT ONE DAY HE RIPPED HER BEST FRIENDS FACE OFF! NOW SHE IS BLIND LOST BOTH OF HER HANDS AND CAN HARDLY TALK! SO NO!
Wild animals can spread diseases and also can kill us. It is very costly to train them and they also need alot of attention and if there are babies in the house they can hurt them. If you take them out for a walk they can dirty the house when they come back.
Wild animals should not be kept as pets. I say this because sometimes animals carry diseases that are dangerous to humans. Some of these diseases are rabies,herpes, and salmonella.Some of the diseases are even fatal to humans.Another reason they should not be kept as pets is because baby animals grow up. They may seem nice and gentle when there a baby but wait till they get older. When cats and other animals turn to teenagers or young adults they get more aggressive with humans. They will start biting, scratching, and possibly attacking young children. And when this happens you can not send them into the wild because if they survive they could disturb your local ecosystem. So if you want to prevent from getting a fatal disease, or getting attacked by a vicious animal i would recommend saying NO to getting a wild animal that could change your life forever.(in a bad way)
What gives one species; Human Beings, a right to dominate and enslave another species!! Who would enjoy having all the luxuries but no freedom of movement. Yes animals are faithful, well most of them at least, but so were the slaves in the 16th and 17th centuries. Today we are appalled to think of human slavery and yet we support slavery of animals!!
Animals lovers go on how animals are humans or humanlike, yet they enslave them for their own pleasure. Would you enslave a human? If not, let your animals go. It's ignorant, selfish and self serving to think animals are better off stuck in your home, living on your schedule and not living free. Do the right thing, let them go
Domestic animals should be around the house and not in it. The humans domesticated them for a purpose that is useful to them depending on their respective unique qualities. Cats catch mice, dogs protect the home and the master, the horse brings you places. Their natural being and instincts are serving to the humans and that makes them fulfill a purpose in their life.
They are not domesticated for becoming babies to humans who have psychological issues and fear emotional attachment to other humans or fear rejection. Don't forget, humans choose each other, and a person may choose to love you or not. Love from a human is much harder to achieve because humans can actually feel and give love whereas animals don’t. They get attached to humans because of instinct and because they have no choice sometimes. A pet has no choice but to choose the one who imprisoned it in his house.
What did we become? Neutering animals to serve our hideous need to pet a cat or have dog running to us? “Their unconditional love” I hear, I read everywhere. What love? How do animals know what we call love? Love is a human instinct and feeling. Animals are instinct driven. That is why cats are different from dogs, who are different from horses, who are different from parrots, etc. Neutering, imprisoning cats and dogs in the house has become accepted standard practice. A dog runs to you because of his pack instinct tells him you are the pack leader, the provider and he has to be nice to you or he will not be fed. Cats are not affectionate and they allow you to pet them so they get their food, because they know his is what you want and they just put up with it. The war on feral cats has started. Why? They control the rodent population from the sewers. If we capture them we will be invaded by rodents, or birds. Cats don’t hunt colorful birds. Their first line of food is dumpsters then rodents, and birds are their last resort because obviously they are harder to catch. Leave feral cats alone! They are part of the city ecosystem and they fulfill a purpose that is needed by our community.
Cats kept prisoners in the house are a disaster! They destroy furniture because they follow their instinct of scratching every surface they use. If you like having nasty ugly furniture go ahead bring in the offenders. They run around, climb on your kitchen table and counters, get inside cabinets because they like to live in large spaces with trees and houses and like to know and recognize every corner by marking it. That is not hygienic. Cats have dirty paws and butts and they put them on your place where you prepare your food.
Cats are stalkers! They stalk objects in your house, like plants, wires, your feet, your hair and then attack because they are following their hunting instinct.
Heres the reason why we should not keep wild animals as pets they can kill you as well as bring diseases such as rabies, salmonella and Herpes B virus. These are dangerous diseases so I would rather not have a wild animal as A pet and never will no matter what.
