Before you all charge towards me with arguments, nuclear bombs, disgusting looks and quotes like "oh-I-dont-trust-people-who-dont-like-animals". Hear me out. Let me make few things clear first.
1. I don't hate them. I would just not prefer them in my house
2. I like cats, but doesn't mean I would be keen on getting one 24x7
Now why I am not into pets
Pets, especially cats and puppies are cute but I wouldn't want them in my home all the time.
1. Hygiene Concerns
I am a clean freak. Whenever I hear the word 'pet' these things come to my mind- pet hair, peculiar pet smell, scratches on furniture, their slime dripping everywhere.....ugh... I would want my home free of these things and I would have to work real hard to keep my house clean than it would take if it were without pets.
To me, humans always come first. Pets can be a part of family but in my eyes, they will never be equal to humans. Ever. (I'm waiting for people to hate on me uhh)
3. I would rather have a baby
I really love babies. Somehow, in today's society its okay to 'not be a baby person' but is a blasphemy to 'not be an animal person'. Alas! :(
I would invest my time and energy in caring for my own baby than caring for a pet. I think this is natural as it is normal to have affinity towards our own kind.
Stop shaming anyone who doesn't want pets!
SO much generalization, so wow. Proves point number 3. When you search internet for "I don't like pets" many such pics come up. However, when you search for "I don't like babies" many images like this come up.
And I thought it was normal to have affinity toward our own. Smh. Just because I don't want a pet doesn't mean I am an untrustworthy, heartless bitch. It is just my preference to not have any. And that my priorities differ than yours.
It doesn't make you cool to generalize people who aren't pet fans. But hey, if you have cute cat or a puppy, I don't mind playing with it little 😇
Live and let live!
