    Not everyone is as lucky as your aunt. Some can't even find partners when they're in their 20s or 30s.

    I would never compare a kid to a fucking pet. Anyone that would needs to be smacked upside the head (in my honest and not quite humble opinion) so lets clear that up. A pet is a pet is a pet. You can talk to it, pamper it, carry it around in a purse, feed it filet mignon, leave it 12 million dollars inheritance... but its still a pet.
    Stop comparing people to pets.
    Well then why don't you smack me upside the head, because I stand by what I said.
    Thought, I do believe they frown upon it, when a guy hurts a girl, when all the girl did was have an opinion.

    ...And in case any smartass wants to claim that I must not have experienced the death of a pet, I've had two hamsters die, a cat get hit by an ice cream truck, another cat run away, and a dog shared by me and my neighbors have to get put down due to cancer. STFU.
    I've had a cat eaten by a neighbor's dog. Another get hit by a car, like I said earlier. 2 cats never came back home. I've had my two hamsters' new born babies burried alive, because we couldn't keep them and no one would take them. I've had 2 gold fish die of some sort of poisoning. A cat put away for internal wounds. A duck (yes it was just a fucking bird, but it was still a loved pet) brought back home by the neighbor, bleeding from the neck. Their dog had attacked it when it wondered off into their yard. It died during the night. And, I watched my old little dog get torn to pieces by a dog who got out from its yard from across the street.
    And you know what? They were all family. Every. Single. One.
    Not just a pet.

    Sucks for them. If they really wanted a partner, they'd treat it with importance and do whatever is necessary to find one.

    I'm 3000 miles away. =\

    [blah blah blah sad stories]

    Ok. So they were part of the family. I've no problem with that. But I do have a problem with hysteria over the death of a pet. Like I said. Call it what you want. Until it leaves that litterbox for good, until you take that collar off, until you get rid of that little gps device under it's skin, until you stop paying other people to take it out to shit... its a pet. Equate it with a person if you want. But I will say "fuck you" to anyone who believes I am equal or deserve equal treatment to his/her dog, and anyone who gets into hysterics over a pet - in my eyes - is an irredeemable whiny sissy bitch.

    Maybe I should start regarding that tree that I planted in my front yard as part of my family and start hoarding Kleenex in preparation for its inevitable murder at the hands of some chainsaw weilding psychopath from the Parks Department.

    Fuck you Ellen, fuck you Leona, fuck you Paris.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    It's a really good thing then, that those don't apply to most of my pets.



    And just to annoy you a little bit more: Litterboxes are like a diaper for a baby. So until that brat doesn't get potty trained, it's considered a pet?



    :P

    Nope. Known it for a while.

    Mine too. Besides, all of those things - GPS chips, picking up shit, etc - aren't necessarily signs of the superiority of one species, just the refusal of one species to accept the natural habits of the other. It's just imposing our rules on them. A dog doesn't care if it shits on someone's lawn - it's the maniacal old lady inside that flips out over it. We're doing this to help her out, not the dog. She's the one who needs help.

    And I'm not going to bother trying to explain about people getting emotional attachments to animals - it's obvious and you know it happens, as well it should, but you'll be too busy marching around parading your cool-as-ice lack of emotion for all the internet ladies to swoon over to admit it.

    I was devastated when my dog died. We'd had him for as long as I could remember, and he figured in my childhood memories as much as any other member of my family. Pets are family. And people who think it's funny or clever or some kind of a mark of superiority to torture or harrass or kill one just show how low and unenlightened their brains really are.

    But also...

    Jesus. Who thought that was the best option? Even if you had to kill them, I'm not sure a long and slow death of suffocation/starvation was the most humane way, was it?

    I had nothing to do with it. I wasn't even around when it happend. They were newly born. I believe just a couple of hours after birth. These things are extreamly tiny, hearless, and ... well soft. So it wasn't a long and slow death, I'd like to believe.
    The thing is, the animal shop wouldn't take 'em, and no way an animal shelter would accept 'em. We couldn't just flush them down the toilet, like some people do with their fish. And there is really no way to kill a baby hamster, other than burrying it.

    Their mother was really careless. That was the problem. She walked over them, causing the little things to squeek in pain. She would carry them around the cage, then leave 'em there.

    Once, before this incident, after coming home from a 3 day vacation, we saw that the hamster had given birth. And there was a dead baby in a corner of the cage, because the mom had abondened it.
    That time, the animal shop took 'em. But this time, they already had too many.


    So you say, "well why can't you keep the male and female hamsters apart?"
    We didn't have two cages, nor the space to store two. You live in Japan, Sherm, don't you? You should know the tiny-ness of Japanese housing. :P

    I love my 2 cats but I also understand that it costs a lot of money to keep them (I'm pretty much poor). I wouldn't pay a ransom for my pet who was originally a stray to begin with. Chances are the pet will die anyway. I would either contact the police or act like I'll pay up till I can find him and beat the shit out of him.

    God damnit Stealdragon. Your rampant spree of backwater dipshittery has got my knickers in a twist.

    Now if you sat there for days soaking through your pillow pounding your fists into your bed refusing to eat sleep or shit (read: hysterics) until Muffin came back to life
    ... then yeah, I would call you a whiny sissy bitch.
    He quite clearly didn't mean 'hysterical' to the ludicrous extent you decided to interpret it to. Most blatant straw man argument ever.

    Hey. Smartass. Since when does trembling = hysteria? Think about that for a second then think about what you wrote and get back to me. Resort to the dictionary if you must.
