Animals have lives and souls just like us, we can think and we have feelings.
Imagine if you treat a boy by locking him up in a cage all day, cleaning it rarely and feeding it rarely, it will feel sad and uncomfortable. The same if you do to an animal.
Caring for a pet is caring for a life, like how parents care for a child. If people treat you badly, you won't be happy of course. The same to a pet.
Adopting a pet isn't for its cuteness or a decoration, it is to give it a home, a better life.
Some people say dogs/cats are smelly. That's because those dogs/cats are homeless and they live on streets. Dogs/cats that stay in houses are cared under the care of their owners. The same as a parent taking good care of you, living in a nice comfortable home instead of outside the house on the streets.
And if a child is sick, parents/good people take him/her to the doctor because they care for the child.
A pet can be your friend, your baby, your brother/sister or part of your family.
Please share this to your friends, family, and everyone else.
