Like any living being, a dog, a cat, a bird, a small mammal or any other close animal, is the sum of an equivalent number of advantages and disadvantages. The person who decides to share his life with an animal has to work out the balance before its arrival. Too often situations become muddled because of a lack of anticipation and reflection. About ten years ago, a study showed the "10 fundamental reasons why people abandon pets “. Among those, a certain number simply noted common sense and haste.
To fall for an animal is quite natural provided that we do not slip into the bliss of "everything is beautiful, everything is nice"! A puppy for sale that we found cute then becomes several tens of kilograms. A playful but endearing kitten climbs the curtains from the first moment. A bird in cage, a surprising singer, might cover the carpet with the waste from its seeds. A rabbit with attractive ears could bite the leads of the phone at the earliest opportunity. The list could go up considering the various situations and testimonials of many animal welfare groups! Even worse is to try to make an animal a kind of warped human being or try and make him resemble child.
