Do We Treat Our Pets Like Our Children?

Do We Treat Our Pets Like Our Children?

My animals are my children, of course. I have stepped in front of poisonous snakes for my dogs, just as I would for my kid. I don't have dogs currently, but I do have a free-run (no cage) bunny and a free-flying (no cage) cockatiel (and yes I know birds as pets is controversial, but the ones already here and homeless cannot be released in the wild, they would die). They are my kids and I wouldn't dream of treating them as anything else. I think they own the house more than I do. And yes, I tend to say "mommy is coming..." when they call me lol Though, I don't celebrate birthdays of anyone. Why designate a certain day to appreciate someone, or buy them presents? Everyday should be their birthday! They do have their own photobucket, but I don't carry pictures around with me.
