Whoever said that ‘a house is not a home without a pet’ is a big, fat liar!

Pets are the most wanted felon with all their mess and heinous crimes against hygiene. Nope, I would go against your decision of getting your kid a pet. You might be surprised why the sudden change of views about pets.

Yes, pets are furry, cute, funny, and cuddly; but that’s just a disguise. Are you really ready to get used to all the severe cleaning of their odours, stains and poops all over the house? Are you ready to keep up with their appetite, their energy and lavish grooming that could break a bank?

Some people believe owning a pet can improve your child’s life, they probably mean the messy part of it. How can pets teach my kids to be responsible and loving by just being that adorable, cute and cuddly creature? Ok let’s stop! Before I succumb to their cuteness… (wink, wink)!
