Men and Pets …
Lets compare the two shall we ? First lets do pets , why do we have them ? Companionship , love, fun, exercise , extra work, extra food , that is most of the reasons we have pets for right ? We love the idea of having this happy animal in our homes to be there when we get home if we have to go out , to just be really happy to see us , gives us a warm feeling of being wanted and loved. Then once we get in they demand all our attention and also want to be fed and pampered and get miffed if we do not give them what they want when they want it . By the time you finally did all that then if it is a dog you have it wants to go for a walk and gets upset if you are too tired to go. Will pester you till you realise that until you do go and take it for the walk it will give you no peace at all. So guess you can see that the idea of relaxing after a hard day at work or shopping or whatever is not going to happen till all pets ( pests ) have been sorted out , then and only then can you try to relax for yourself and have some you time. This might take anything up to an hour or two to be finished so there goes that time you wanted for yourself to unwind and get the day behind you .
Now men lets take them ( must we ? ) lol yes we must as they are part of the equation too no matter what you think , men like pets are here to stay and must be factored into our lives , there is no escaping that no matter what we think. So what are the differences here ? We have them about for the same things love, companionship, exercise , extra food , extra work , etc, etc , etc. Here too we love to have them at home when we get home and to greet us with happiness when we walk in the door. We wont go into the errrr exercise bit of the equation here I think you know where and what that is . Just like pets though they want to be pampered and fed and paid attention to , and until that is done once more you have no you time till they are also sorted out . Just like pets they give you no peace till you have given them all the attention they demand and until they get it , then and only then will you get any peace. The good side to all this is when you go to bed you have the love and cuddles that make it all so worth the effort and make you want to do it and we just love it .
Then of course there are those who have both ( yikes ! ) they have men and pets in the one house , now I am not sure if this is brave or just plain stupid to be honest , not quite worked this one out even now , one of the above is more trouble than anyone needs lol . Why anyone would two of these is more than I can understand , one at a time is good fishing , is something I always believed . Men demand the same things as pets and in much the same way , and no matter how hard you look at it there is very little difference in how you look after them both . Also both cost about the same to keep with work and food and all the pain they also can bring. Why then do we do it ? We do it because of that one little 4 letter word called …love .. we love them and we want to please them and they make us feel good , and we all need to feel loved and needed it is part of being human , also it feels dam good to be loved .
So if it is a pet or a man they both bring the joys and the hardship into our lives but do we care ? Of course we do not , because we are human , also we are women we embrace the difficulties as well as the pain and the extra work , all in the name of love , we do it because we love them and that is the end of the story . Women will always be creatures of love and compassion whether for man or pets we will always love to have them around us and will always do so . I cannot see this changing any time soon , nor would I want to see it change .
