After all the different articles on why having pets is a good idea, by now, I am sure that the majority of us, if not all, are very well acquainted with the advantages of having pets. They make good companions, you will find true love in those creatures, taking care of them gives you an idea about taking care of little children, while you care for a pet you too mature as an individual, if you adopt a pet then you are giving a homeless being a family, and many more are the very basic and also the common advantages of having a pet that would come to our minds. But in this post I shall give you more reasons as to why you must adopt a pet. These are a must read because they are not just quirky but also not usually thought of.
1. Dogs are a lady’s love
If you are a boy who is single and wants to ‘patao’ a girl then this one is for you. Firstly, take your dog for a walk to a park where a lot of young girls go. Then make sure that you are in a spot which is visible to most people. Over there you can play fetch with your dog and make it do other cute stuff like walking on two legs or just flaunting its good looks. This will catch the attention of the beautiful girls who are sure to come over to you in order to play with your four legged friend. If that does not happen, then you can send your dog near them on the pretext of fetching its toy. While you finally manage to initiate a conversation with the ladies, do not forget to mention the heart- warming story of how you rescued the poor little thing from the dog catchers who would have killed it if you had not stepped forward to adopt it (this need not be entirely true and you can throw in some drama as well). So at the end of it, you will not just be the hero but also a ladies’ man.
2. Cats strike a chord with men
The next one is for the ladies. If you have watched the movie ‘The Ugly Truth’ then you will know how to use your kitty cat to get your hot neighbor, who you are crushing on, to notice you. For those of you who have not, keep reading to find out. Just let your cat do what it usually does, that is, let it climb a tree and stay there for a while. While it is still on top, run to your crush and tell him in a panicky tone that your cat is stuck on a tree and is really frightened to come down on its own. Then request him to get the little one down and save it (you can leave out the part where the treetop is a regular hangout spot of kitty dearest). So once they are both safely on the ground, praise your cat’s savior and take his number in case you might need more saving in the future. The great task will be accomplished and you won’t even be obvious.
3. Pets make lazy people responsible
Another of these ideas is for those children and teenagers whose parents think that they are irresponsible. It is a characteristic of quite a lot of Indian parents to think that their children are very careless and that is why the latter are denied some of the things they want. For example: a new video game. So the best method for those kids to prove themselves to their elders is by taking up the complete responsibility of the house pet. It may get a little troublesome at times but it is definitely worth it. All that is required of them is to take the pet for regular walks and exercise, feed it the right kind of food at the proper time without fail, give it a bath whenever necessary, take care of its health and see to it that the pet is up to date on its vaccinations, clean up the mess it might makes etc. Once the parents see that their child is truly responsible, they will not just be proud of him or her and stop complaining but will also increase his or her privileges.
As I have mentioned earlier, these are only the added advantages of having a pet. But it certainly does not mean that you must bring home a pet just so you can use it for the above mentioned strategies. If your want to bring home a pet, you should do it if and only if your intentions are good towards the animal. Not because you want to ‘use’ it for anything. It must be taken care of well and also be given all the love that you possibly can. All I am trying to put forward through this post is that if you already have a pet, why not make the most out of it?
