I think that most people fall into a pet category, so, what kind of pet person are you?
There are those who are diehard cat people. Sometimes, their personalities mimic those of the royal aloof feline. And when I say royal, I mean royal. How many of us have someone at our beck and call 24/7 to feed, pet and clean our bathroom?
The dog people think they are the best. They are rather loyal and true blue if I do say so myself. They walk around covered in fur…no not the kind that has PETA up in arms…the ones that come from petting and loving their furry friends.
The reptile people can’t understand why there are those who don’t think that scaly and cold-blooded creatures are endearing. I mean they are rather useful; rats are a nuisance to humans but to reptiles they are a snack. And what little boy hasn't used one to attract the attention of a little girl?
The hamster people must be night owls…because seriously who can sleep while that little guy runs on his squeaky wheel all night long?
The fish people are stress free. Everyone knows that aquariums are relaxing, that is until you have to clean all 55 gallons of it or have a toilet bowl funeral.
The bunny people never have to buy another bunny again, as they scratch their heads and wonder why the buck bunny they bought turned out to be a pregnant doe.
The horse people go broke. Yes I speak from experience. What with horse shows, vets, farriers, and feeding a 1,000 lb. animal…well, there isn’t much money left for much else.
And then there are the bird people. You recognize them since they always sport a stray feather or two, and have to tell you about the ten new words in Tweety's vocabulary.
I won’t even go into the insect realm, but there are those people too.
Yes I guess everyone fits into a pet category. What am I? Well, I am covered in dog hair; I have a pooper-scooper in my right hand and my checkbook in my left. When I walk into Petsmart they greet me by name as I grab some fish food and pick the birdseed out of my hair. So…. you be the judge.
