I really like my pets.....

Post by kingstonlake on 2018-07-07, 12:42

But do you feel like punching people in the face that call them "fur babies"?

The raised level of status that people have for pets is getting out of control. Bringing them to stores, thunder shirts for storms and fireworks. JFC it's a disposable part of your home that 90% of people will replace within a month of it's death. Get a grip. It's not a human. It licks it's own ass and ball. NTTAWWT.

End rant.

I've never heard anyone call their pets fur babies. Punching anyone in the face that says that seems to be an appropriate response though.

I like our cats (especially one in particular) more than I like most people.

However, yeah, "fur babies" makes me wanna punch something.

Ha, almost. I came across that early yesterday evening while out on my bike, maybe 3/4 of a mile from home. It wasn't looking too good so i went back this morning but it was gone. It was ginormous, bigger than a football.

I don't have any pets at the moment, but calling them disposable is fucked up.

Yet another reason that Kingston is a dipshit who is always wrong. Tell us again how Cake in the Ocean is the greatest song ever written...

I don’t call my dog my fur baby, but don’t care/get upset when I hear a woman call their pet one. Ive never heard or read of a guy doing it.
However, what would make me want to punch someone in the face, and probably would, is if they said to me most of the rest of what you posted. What a condescending prickish thing to say.

Was on a road up in the Leelanau and a guy flagged us down. Was off his bike so figured he had a bike issue. Turned out there was a snapper (about the size of the one in your picture) in the road he didn't want to get hit. About 5 or 6 other cars ending up stopping too and everyone got out to look. One guy went to pick it up to move it off the road but it wanted no part of that...mean and surprisingly quick. Took maybe 10 minutes but he finally got hold of it and moved it way off the road.

I've been attached to most of the pets I've owned. I guess I  draw the line when people start treating them like humans. It's ok to love them but they aren't human. For instance I have a good friend who enters her dog in "beauty" contests. Really? C'mon now...

They are disposable in the sense that they are replaceable. And usually are. You can buy them off a shelf. You can order them. Choose your options like a car. Go to a dealer, like a car. Be honest. Most people replace them quickly after they die. There's nothing wrong with that. It's ok to want the companionship.

"Fur babies" is mostly a chick thing AFAIK. They also sometimes dot their i's with little hearts and call strangers "sweetie". Yawn, so what, and who cares.

Yeah, you're not coming across as a guy who values his pets. You're coming across as a shithead who views dogs and cats as furniture.

You're coming across as someone who lost sight of the original post and the types of pet owners I was taking issue with and how THEY view their pets. As replaceable accessories...

But that's ok.

DR, I never thought of an instagram account for my dogs. I could troll other dog owners who have similar accounts. On second thought, nope, not going to happen seems like too much effort.
