I don’t know what I would do without my pets.
My partner and I are the proud owner of three cats and one dog, and because we don’t have any “real” children of our own, we spoil them all as if they actually were our children.
One of the coolest things about having pets instead of having children is all of the tricks you can teach them. For weeks we have been trying to train our cats a new trick, and they are finally starting to perfect it. The trick we have been trying to teach them is to adjust the temperature dial on the air conditioning unit. We have a pretty old school type of a/c unit that doesn’t come with any fancy app that lets you adjust it from your phone. If you want to turn the air conditioning up or down, you have to do it the old school way. Now that our cats are finally catching onto the trick however, our days of having to do that are in the past. All we have to do is yell their names and point over to the a/c unit, and then it is taken care of. They adjust the dial, and then they are given a treat. Not only are our animals the best companions ever, but they can do cool stuff like this. I still don’t see any possible way how someone could still want a child over a dog or a cat. I know that human kids are only good for one thing when it comes to a/c units, and that’s breaking them!
