Thread: I Don't Get It...

    Default I Don't Get It...

    I have just been browsing the trading post and have seen heaps of ads for dogs and cats free to good home because the owners are pregnant
    Am I missing something? Should I be giving away my cat and dog?

    I guess some people have a limit on how many creatures they can look after.

    Personally - it's not going to be an excuse I would ever use, and I don't think I could relate to anyone who could.

    No, don't get it either. I expected my dog to be as excited as me about the new baby. And at least I got lots of fresh air and healthy exercise when I was pregnant because of the dog. And then when baby was born, she got to go out at least twice a day too for a dog walk.

    I guess it's better than people neglecting their dogs because they have kids and think they cannot fit dog walking or even giving their dog some attention into their busy schedule. At least the child won't know about the betrayal if the pet's gone by the time they are born.

    My daughter has some undiagnosed medical issues and my ex mother in law recently suggested that it may be because of our pets!!! I wasn't going to argue with her, but I remember reading about a study that claimed that kids growing up with pets had a lower chance of allergies and a stronger immune system.

    Nice response.

    Also....Kids brought up with a healthy attitude for any animal also have a better sense of responsibility and caring for all living things later in life.

    Don't ask me to quote any source, it just makes sense.

    I agree Chipps!

    When my friends Mum got pregnant she got rid of all her cats because she believed if she had them there she would catch what ever the thing is in their poo that can cause birth defects (or death which ever one it is). Was so horrible and none of the kids were happy at all.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Yes you should.
    It is well known that pregnant women have insatiable cravings.

    What if you wanted a kit CAT or a hot DOG?

    I think I am bored.

    - love it Di!

    I think it's just because some people cannot be bothered, maybe they've had testing done and their kid will have some sort of disability or there is something else going on (limited income + new baby = cutting costs?)

    I don't get it either, people bewilder me.
