Why Pets Are Not For Me

I am not a pet person. No, I don't hate them, I just don't have the personality to keep pets. I do like to look at them and occasionally pat them for being good dogs/cats. But that's not enough. Pets need love. Pets need their owners to take care of them like family. I do not have the time or the patience to take care of mundane matters for them like walking them, bathing them, buying dog and cat supplies. Pets are not fashion accessories. They are living things and deserve to be treated decently, and I fear that I just don't have it in me to care for them the way they deserve.

What if my kids want a pet in the future? Sure, they can have them, but they have to handle the responsibility of having pets like feeding them and taking care of them. Don't expect me to do those for them when they get tired of doing so because it was not my idea in the first place.
