"R" is for Responsibility

The "Disposable Pet" Syndrome
An Article by Your Guide Franny Syufy

Kittens are adorable, aren't they? Even the hardest heart will soften at the sight of soft, cuddly balls of fur. But kittens grow up all too soon, and unless their human guardians educate themselves in the proper care and training of their feline companions, they may become cats with unpopular habits, such as soiling antique rugs and scratching your new leather recliner. At times like these, without their protective cloaks of cuteness, cats may be looked on by some people as "disposable goods," and thus the line is drawn between cat owners and cat lovers.

I always wonder why people don't understand how to take care of animals, they just want something cute and then "Oh wait, we are supposed to feed it?"

Very well said and written! People should have enough knowledge first about the pet their going to get all from the breed information, things they should meet for the pet up to how care them in times of sickness and problems.
