On the subject of best pets, that’s simple, anything you love or are capable of loving. I do not like rats, but I do know that if a tame rat turned up needing help, then I would help it. There’s not a lot I couldn’t love. A snake would be a real problem, but not for my husband, so he could sort that out.
The worst pets?
Firstly I thought ‘naughty onesI’ But that would not make for an interesting blog, and I do try to be interesting. So…
An elephant maybe, I love elephants but I would fear for the floor boards, anything breakable including us, and what about taking it for walks. Where do you get a lead? What if it suddenly makes a run for it? Who cleans up after it?
Then there’s a crocodile. Okay if you live in the wild and don’t value your extremities too much, but not so good in suburbia. For a start it probably could climb stairs and I don’t fancy waking up with 15’ of crocodile snoring gently on my chest, if indeed one would wake up. I’m also guessing their breath isn’t what one would hope.
Then there is feeding Roc the Croc? According to recent headlines regarding our supermarkets, there should be plenty of meat around unfit for human consumption that might be okay for Roc. But what if he got peckish? You’d never be able to deny culpability over the number of missing pets and body parts with a crocodile shaped hole in the fence and a leg abandoned in your back garden. No a crocodile could be a very embarrassing idea.
“Where is daddy’s leg Roc? That innocent look won’t work with me! You’re still chewing on his shoe! And his leg is no use in the garden is it? I don’t care if he trod in some gravy, that’s no excuse, I told you that when you snatched that chicken drumstick…and his hand. This naughtiness has to stop!”
However, I think the worst would be a fire breathing dragon with a cold. Not too bad on a normal day, especially if you keep a fire extinguisher handy (dragon safe of course), but three sneezes and a loud cough and your house (life/neighbourhood/reputation) would be somewhat singed. That’s if several piles of ashes house high can be described as singed.
Yes I think all pets are good as long as you can love them…and even humans shouldn’t be housed in suburbia…let alone the above!
Happy Easter – whatever your persuasion enjoy the holiday!
To your happiness and safe pets
Deb and the cats xx
One thought on “This needs consideration”
Love this Deb. Very deep. I love snakes, so warm and dry! I agree, large beasts don’t make good pets but, neither do some humans. I’d quite like a Lion, they will not pose a threat unless humans do, lionesses will kill tho! Preferring the company of my 3 beautiful dogs and trusted friends, I feel very blessed. 🙏🏻❤️xxxx
