Pet Owners Day

Apr 14, 2015

Did you know it is Pet Owners Day on April 18th? Take some time to celebrate the furry family members in your life!

Having a pet is a big responsibility. While some pets – like dogs – require more effort than other pets – like fish – all pets need some level of attention and love. Pet Owners Day is a special day to celebrate yourself, for all of the hard work you put into keeping your pet healthy and happy. It is also a good time to give your pet some extra attention, and maybe even a gift!

Tips for Pet Owners

If you want to keep your furry family friend healthy and happy, follow some of these tips:

  • Schedule regular check-ups with the vet
  • Ensure your pet gets enough exercise, whether that be taking your dog for a walk or getting your hamster a wheel!
  • If your pet is allowed outdoors, make sure it has proper identification in case it gets lost. This way someone will know how to return it to you
  • Buy the proper food for your pet’s type. Keep in mind any special breeds or dietary needs.
  • Give your pet lots of love and attention!

Want a Pet?

Almost everyone dreams of having a pet. Whether you want a soft kitten or a bouncy puppy, I’m sure you’ve thought about (or tried to convince) your family to add a new member to the family. Here are some of the things you need to consider before taking the big step:

  • Do you have enough time to dedicate to the pet? If you have other siblings or family members who can help out, you might be able to share the responsibilities.
  • Do you have enough money to care for the pet properly? Pets take a lot of money. In addition to the initial purchase, you need to pay for food, grooming, toys, treats and occasional vet visits. Some pets will require extra vaccinations and shots.
  • Do you have any allergies? Many people buy a pet only to discover they are allergic once the pet gets home. Head to your doctor’s office and get tested or spend some time with a similar animal before you get one of your own.
  • Are you willing to adopt? Thousands of animals are brought to pounds across the country each year. If you are willing to adopt one of these pets, you could be saving their life.

I guess it depends on where you live. If there is a state / country that doesn't allow you to have a phone until you're 13, that's utterly ridiculous and I'd imagine they're in the minority with that law.

No idea if someone's already written a reply similar to mine, I didn't read much of them because this isn't really a debate, it's more of a straight up question with the answer being because quite a lot of people under the age of 18 are incapable of making responsible votes. I mean, let's take a step back. Everyone knows Trump would be a ridiculous candidate to vote for, his views are borderline (if not full on) fascist. He wants to keep a database of who is Muslim. If you don't find that ridiculous and outright bigotry and discrimination, don't even bother me with your response. (Long story short, vote for Bernie Sanders, I live in the UK and even I know that) Anyway, I'm going off topic. The reason I detailed why Trump would be a terrible person to vote for is because everyone with common sense knows it, meaning people under 18 too. And what happens when you give voting privileges to a 14 year old basement dweller who spends all his time on # ###? He thinks it's funny to cast a vote for Trump. In fact, it's not only your average pre-######### teenager who will find this funny, there's probably quite a lot of people who would vote for Trump "for the lols". Yes, there are people like that. And what happens when enough of these idiots think it's funny to vote for Trump? He racks up a decent amount of votes, not to mention all the ignorant racists who will be voting for him, and let's face it, there's lots of them. Maybe you, as a person under 18 would not vote stupidly, I know I wouldn't, but sadly, people who are under 18 and mature don't make up the majority, meaning you're going to get a lot of people who don't know what they're doing voting for dumb reasons whether it be "for the lols" or because they're voting for who their parents support.
