Pets or as is sometimes known as ” pests ” Pests also known as husbands just to be clear but this is about the other variety, the pet variety lol love em or hate em most people these days have had or have got a pest…er pet or 2 in their lives. There are so many kinds of pets we can have today , dogs, cats, fish, birds, rats, snakes , lizards , to name just a few there are many more other types we have tamed and bought into our lives these days . So many have them in their homes or yards or wherever , I personally do not like animals in houses for many reasons but that’s my choice a lot of others do like it that way .
So how do these pets effect our us in our day to day living ? To some they are all the love and attention they need and want , to others they are an addition to a family . The ones added to families bring a lot of happiness along with the extra work , if its a dog the way they wag their tails in sheer joy when you get home , or when your playing with them just has a really good feel to it , for a cat its more subtle just a rub round your ankles , if they are not ignoring you that is as cats do like to do , some birds will chirp at you or squawk at you . No matter what kind of pet is has its own way of greeting you after an absence of any duration , and that to most people who have pets is more than enough reasons to have them and the added expense .
Lets be honest there is a lot to be said for having these friends around , for example it has been proved how much good dogs for instance can do , they can be used as seeing eye dogs and the bond between them and the people they look after is very strong and is lovely to see. They also use dogs in ” Pets in Therapy ” and they get wonderful results with the joy they bring to the sick and the young and the elderly , and those that are used as hearing dogs , or ones that fetch things for their companions , I call them companions rather than owners as they are more than owners they are friends , each helping the other and showing love.
Cats too have been used as therapy for those in need of love and companionship as they too can be wonderful to be around and can also be very loyal and devoted to their companions . You only have to watch a cat and the way it re acts to its person to see the affection they can show , and then listen to them purring in happiness when they have been fed and / or you just got home and they were lonely . I used to have a cat that hardly ever left my side it was so happy to be with me so I know they can be like that , and for those who have no one else the cat is the purrfect replacement and friend. Lol they can also be very bossy but that is just part of being a cat and cats are very demanding at the best of times.
Birds too can be wonderful fun especially if they are the talking kind , you walk in and right away you get ” Hello Cocky ” the second they see you as they too have become used to having you around and miss you when you go out , just like most pets . A lot of them can be taught all sorts of words and actions and can amuse people for hours , all you need to do is be careful what words you teach them as they never forget , and that can be a big worry lol .
So here we have it pets and pests ( husbands ) which do we want the most ? lol which gives us the most pleasure or the most pain ? As I see it there is not much between pests and pets lol there are so many pros and cons for both …decisions …decisions …Having had both I still cannot make up my mind lol there are times when I wish the pest was a pet and then there are times that I wish the opposite . Lets face it there is good reason for having both , but I am saved from the choice by living in a place that allows no pets , only pests ….oh well …ya get that …
