This needs consideration

What animals make the best/worst pets?

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

I'm a writer, public speaker, medium, and spiritual thinker. I suffered from acute anxiety from the age of 16 until I was well into my 50s, after fearlessly exploring many ideas, philosophies, and tools, I finally found methods that helped me return my mind to a better normal. One of the things I hated about anxiety was the way people treated me like a fool or a problem, I have two degrees and I'm a (much) retired black belt, my IQ is decent, but I constantly felt like a complete idiot, something that was exacerbated by never feeling like the real me. The girl who could laugh endlessly about the smallest things, and had a real excitement about what life had to offer her. I didn't need anyone else to tell me I wasn't 'right', I knew that better than anyone. My mission now is to support people suffering as I did with a message of support with what they're going through, tools and ideas that might help, and a strong message of hope for the future. At 63, which I am at the time of writing, many people I know are in a rut, yet having beaten anxiety I'm now doing more with my life than I ever did when I was struggling just to get up in the morning, let alone face the day. It's a wonderful feeling - so the main message is that it doesn't matter how long you've been struggling or what age you are, when you beat anxiety you will get an entirely new lease of life - and that's fantastic at any age. On a personal note I'm married to my soul mate, we have 5 cats, and I live in the middle of the UK. I follow a number of fantastic thinkers, as it's important to immerse yourself in healthy thinking as often as you can, I'm a Toastmaster and professional public speaker, and I keep life simple and encourage my clients to do the same, and my friends.

One thought on “This needs consideration

  1. 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
