I adopted two cats


I just wanted to tell you that. Evil_monster

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Doesn't make you any less of an animal. There are a lot of various animals who in my opinion are much superior to a whole lot of human animals, and whose company I prefer any day.

The fact that you wield power over other animals does not make you any better, as we have seen in oh so many ways throughout history.

You are a mammal, you have the same sensations as a rat. Live with it.

RE: Don't Tell Me You Adopted an Animal
I rescued all of my animals and now they run my house Hobo

I view them as adopted since I didn't birth them myself Wink but take care of them and love them as if they were my children. My mom even calls them her furry grandchildren and everyone at my vet's office says when they die, they want to come back as one of my pets. I know some people might have a problem with it, but I do put animals on the same level as humans, equally deserving of love and respect, therefore equally deserving of the term "adopt."

Someone needs to tell the 'Adopt A Highway' people that they have to find another term for tending to, and taking care of, something that isn't even alive.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

RE: Don't Tell Me You Adopted an Animal
I'll still use the word "adoption" for pets, just like I'll keep using the term "genital mutilation" to refer to male circumcision. Just because I can use the same word to describe two things, that doesn't mean those two things are equivalent. It's all about context.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

But you can "foster" them like permanently. And then they're a tax write off.

Dolphins and mice. Don't panic and grab your towel.

The "adopt a road kill" program never seemed to gain traction...
