    Could you leave your pets at home while you went to a shelter? I have heard that some leave them tied up in the yard or at home.

    I can't fathom that, to me my pets are family.

    I'd stay with my pets before I ever left them.

    that's what pet carriers are for. my bird even has his own carrier. as far as the fish, though...i am not attached enough to try and keep them alive. they are actually my son's fish, but he's only 13months, and would not know the difference if i had to replace them.

    My GF has two dogs. One is a good pup for the most part the other is a royal pain in the butt. I keep threatening to make terriyaki out of the little beast.

    The truth is, if you are going to own a pet, you have certain responsibilities to the little critter.

    Not to mention an attachment I would think. My pets would come with come hell or high water. I guess I just look at pets differently than some.
