I love animals and would love a pet, but the finances just aren’t there right now, or the time for the attention a pet would deserve.
I love looking at the pets board though, living vicariously through everyone else’s cuties. 🙂
Anyone else not have fur babies?

We desperately want pets but can’t start adopting furbabies until we buy a place of our own.
We’re currently renting in a pet-free building, but even if we rented somewhere that allows them, I would still wait. I don’t want to be caught in a situation where we have to move out and then can’t find a pet-friendly place again.

I haven’t had any pets my whole life… until I moved in with my husband. My dad is allergic so we’ve never gotten to have pets, I would always dog sit whenever I could b/c I love dogs! Now I’m very happy to have my very own furbaby finally.

I’m still at home, where we have a cat and a dog, but I won’t be able to have a pet with Fiance for quite some time. I work four days a week for 10 hours, plus a one hour commute each way, and he’s going to be going back to school. It’s sad, but we’re going to have to put animals off for awhile.

I know my take on this is unpopular but i do not like animals. Especially dogs. And cats. And birds. I don’t like any of them. I don’t like them sniffing me or rubbing me. I’m a terrible person!

@Mollytov: same here! I have always hated animals and we will never ever have a pet!

@Mollytov: haha, I think that’s okay! pets are definitely not for everyone 🙂

I didn’t have a pet until I was 28, then I got a dog. My parents were always VERY against animals in the house when I was growing up (my mom understandably likes to keep things very clean, and hates the idea of shedding or other animal-oopsies), then I either moved around too much or didn’t have the time or money to keep one. But now I really couldn’t imagine what life was like beforehand! I completely agree that pets aren’t for everyone though!

We don’t have pets but hope to one day. I am allergic to cats, although I love them! So we hope to get a dog but at the moment with both of us working long hours full time we don’t feel its the right time.
Plus we are thinking of moving overseas for a year next year so if we do decide to go we won’t be getting a pet until we return.

I have a lizard at the moment and plan to adopt a shelter cat soon. I was never too fond of furry pets, but I have definitely realized there are some cool cats out there.
I do have to say though, when you tell people “I don’t really like dogs or cats” you kind of get treated like a leper!

I’m a professional animal handler/carer and my whole days is spent with animals. I need balance in my life, so I don’t own any pets myself. (Unless you count fish)

Both Fiance and I grew up in pet loving households, and we fully intend to get a dog in the future. At the moment, though, we are very lazy people, and enjoy sleeping in on the weekends, taking off for trips at a moment’s notice and just worrying about ourselves. We’ve decided to wait awhile to have pets, when we’re not so selfish.

We dont have any pets now, but we’ve been planning to get a dog. I’m hesitant though, I never had a pet growing up, but he did.

Fiance has a snake (and is seriously in love with it, it’s cute and a little creepy) but I’ve always wanted a kitten. We can’t afford it at the moment but i’m hoping by next year we’ll have a furbaby of our own 🙂
