Humanizing pets seems to be quite the touchy subject nowadays. But what does it even mean?
To put it simply, people say we humanize our pets when we call them our fur - babies. People say we humanize our pets when we let them sleep on our beds, or lay on our furniture. People say we humanize pets when we take them on vacations with us, or treat them as our children. And what do I have to say about all these "people?" SO WHAT? Who cares if we call our pets fur babies, who cares if we treat them as our furry children, who....cares!?!
Did you know, according to Wikipedia, 35% of Canadian households own dogs, and 38% Canadians own cats? Yup, that's a lot of pets! About 7.9 million cats, and 5.9 million dogs! WOW!
WHO'S WITH ME??
I would love to hear your thoughts on the subject.
Do you think we humanize our pets too much?
