The Ethics on owning a Housepet

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Rainbow_Love on Wed May 04, 2022 3:37 pm

Do you think it is ethical to own a pet? If only a certain pet, which pets and why these pets?

I don't think it is ethical to own a dog or housecat unless you only work part time or can leave a pet alone less than five hours a day.

I grew up on the Blackfeet reservation in Montana. There are packs of wild dogs who cannibalize each other and eat people because they have no one to care for them. I think regardless of how long you're at work, its probably better than having the dog running in a street gang, eating people because no one will feed it.
