I have notices on buy and sell pages, particularly the north Edmonton one, that people are constantly selling and rehoming their animals. Wife is pregnant. Moving and can’t take (which is utter bullshit to be honest cause see I have a kid so when I needed to rent I didn’t look at adult only places and just say well I’ll take him if I can find a place for him), kids aren’t taking care of him etc…
I know this has been said before but you guys, animals aren’t just an accessory. You don’t just bring an animal, a living, breathing being into your life just to toss it away when it gets too inconvenient for you. While I understand that people may develop allergies to them, it’s not as often as you think and it’s the excuse getting tossed out the most. See, I spent time with my friends kittens and when my eyes turned red and puffy I knew that I wouldn’t be owning a kitten.
I found this out before ever bringing one into my house because I wouldn’t want to find out after a week and then be rehoming my kitten. I am considering a dog but I know the costs associated with it and that’s why I’m still considering it, because while a dog would be great for my son, they cost a lot of money and I would want to make sure I have all that figured out first.
Please, PLEASE stop getting pets on a whim and deciding that whoops, you don’t actually have the time, money, immune system for them.
