    Empathy for Pets

    Have you ever noticed how people just seem to have more empathy for their pets than there fellow human beings?

    Maybe because people consider the pets to be family?

    When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead.
    It is the same way when you are stupid.

    Maybe because pets are dependent, loyal, innocent, don't burden us with confusing or conflicting emotional responses and offer unconditional love.....especially after a real shit day.
    And the best ones purrrrr…...

    I think it has a lot to do with unconditional love a pet gives you,
    they don't care that im late coming home that I had to many drinks in the bar, or saw my sp,

    my guy is simply happy to see me, when ever I get home,

    mine forgives me and is happy to see me, but after she attacks me to her satisfaction for leaving her without attention for however long is only when she will snuggle, if I’m lucky. She always wants to snuggle right on my laptop keyboard when I’m doing admin of course

    Yes, believe it or not your pets are smarter than you....
    They don't work or bring home the bacon....
    Its all about them.
    You clean up after them when they make a mess, and take out the cat litter/clean up the dog shit in the yard.
    They are your masters.....

    I got a cat and he runs the house. Pays the bills, does all the chores and cleaning and keeps food on the table and stocked. Oh wait... I mean he just gets the hooman slaves of the house to do it for him.

    I forget the comedian but I recall a routine about how he says if aliens came to earth, they would think the dogs were in charge when they see us picking up their shit.
