Don't Buy Every Cute Pet You See Support Group
Oooookay, so I've realised I have a pattern. There are certain animals that I know for a fact I want to have at the right time in my life. A dog (or dogs), a chinchilla, and several more cats (but no more than 3 at any one time!). I don't really spend a lot of time daydreaming about these animals. I know a LOT about them already, and about their care, and I know when the time comes, they'll be in my life. But right now, I want more pets. So I spend a lot of time... daydreaming if you will. I go through different animals: hamsters, rats, rabbits, lizards (I've only ever been drawn to a long tailed grass lizard), birds (specifically, a cockatiel or sun conure), guinea pigs, etc, etc. I research the heck out of them, learning what it takes to care for one properly, and if they could fit into my lifestyle (trying to convince myself that somehow they can). I buy books, and look into what it would take to get one. Thankfully each time I've done this, I've realised that I can NOT support any other critters, but I've come close a few times. REALLY close. I'm back on Sun Conures right now. They're such pretty birds! I've had really bad bird experiences up till now, but I think if I really dedicated myself to caring for one and bonding with one, it could be great :) |
I just have to keep reminding myself that if I get any more "critters" the longer I'll have to wait to get my dog or my chinny :(
