cat people versus dog people
When did we get so divided? What happened to "pet people" or "animal people"?
Just the other day mom was on facebook and there was a post about the stupid new law in Montreal banned pitty type dogs. The first comment posted said "that is what happens when cat people get elected to city council". Excuse us?? Mom commented back and said that the comment was uncalled for - that ALL animal people should be against breed specific legislation. (the guy never responded - and the ASPCA took the city council to court to try to get the ban overruled)
That isn't the only example - there are articles all over the place about how one animal group is more outgoing or smarter or whatever than the other group. Granted, most of these articles are clickbait trying to get you to come to their site and have no real scientific basis, but that doesn't stop the public from reading the articles and believing they are true - heck we have seen some of them make it on to the national news.
Mom thinks there is a pet out there that fits the lifestyle of anyone who wants to put in the time and commitment. But choosing one pet over another doesn't make you wrong or right..... find what works for you and for that pet and make a life together. And stop criticizing people for their choices.
Can't we all just get along???
