Whether it’s a dog, cat, bird, or fish, the appeal isthe same – years of fun and unconditional love. Indeed, pets can actually satisfy many of the things people crave most:companionship, communication, loyalty, and plenty of amusement. Perhaps that’s why pets are so popular among theelderly and people who live alone. As human relationships grow more complex with each new technological gadget, thesimple bond between a pet and its owner offers a refreshing and comforting reprieve.In addition to protecting reprehensible practices like fur trapping and animal testing, animal rights groups havebegun to attack owners of cats and dogs for keeping animals “imprisoned” in the home. Finally, these groups have startedto make the justified comparison of owning a pet to keeping a domesticated animal like a sheep or a cow. Both petownership and domestication of animals stem from the same cruel source: human selfishness. No animals should be keptconfined solely for the benefit of human beings, whether that benefit comes in the form of meat, leather, or thecompanionship of a pet. -The English Today, 201141.
