Ask Your Question
I just find it off-putting and weird. Sure, people love their pets. But the term "fur baby" is just odd to me.
Worst is this facebook dog group I'm in, where they refer to their children as "skin pups".
Oh, hell nah....
Poor skin pups :(
Oh my God, that one made me wince.
Is a sphinx cat a skin kitten?
It's a chicken wing.
Meh, it makes no difference to me. It's just a nickname.
I mean, I don't see anything wrong with it - it's funny. I don't support treating pets as kids though, that's weird.
But that is what they are? They are furry babies. Animals keep the mentality of children because of how we domesticate them. In the wild the parents drop them off to fend for themselves near adult hood. In human society we find them needing us cute so we keep them as babies forever.
Agreed, I just refer to them as babies or my sons. They are not animals to me.
I firmly believe that all animals should be treated with respect, but they are NOT little humans in fur coats.
Yeah, it's dumb. I also find it dumb when people call their pets their children's siblings. That's not your child's brother or sister, it's a dang animal. XD
Or dragging their dog around in a baby stroller. Those people are nuts
One time at work we had a lady try to bring her cat into the restaurant in a stroller.
Roseisabella went to your work lol
I would laugh if RoseIsabella actually commented and replied.
That's animal cruelty in my book.
There are a few cats that are so chill that they wouldn't mind being taken out like that, but domestic cats are instinctively solitary territorial animals, and hauling them to new places is generally pretty stressful for them.
This is something the woman was doing for her benefit, not the cat's, and therefore it's messed up.
I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. 🤷🏾♀️
Oh relax, it's just a word
Pets should not be treated as humans, or they will start to think they are human and equal to you. They start developing an attitude. It's not good.
i refer to mine as my bodyguard
I perfer fur missile.
Never agreed with it. But I see my animal as my partner not a bloody baby.
