"Ugh why are you abusing that animal by keeping it in such a tiny cage"
I got this one. A long while ago, I was talking to one of my brothers about something one of my spiders did at the time and because everyone was quiet at that moment and I wasn't drowned out by the usual racket it got the attention of the two people in the family that don't like spiders very much. They asked why I own them and I said I find them interesting, I can't recall the question that lead up to me saying that 'they don't do much' in defense and they asked why I own them again if they don't do much. I remember them saying 'why don't you go study them instead of owning them' which was kind of dumb to me, not sure about anyone else but I think I'd rather drop £20 or so on an order of spiders rather than go into a few thousand pounds worth of loans and debt in an environment I know is not suited for me :vNot really advice but a relative asked me "Why would you want keep a bunch of spiders?" My answer was "Why WOULDN'T I?" Really, have you ever heard a sillier question in your life?
Why is this the first thing that anyone asks when they find out I have multiples? Lol - seriously though. I've gotten this question SO MANY TIMES and I'm just dumbfounded by its prevalence.Not advice, but being asked if I keep them all together as if they should be able to be kept communally.
Therapy cats. Not sure what it is called again, but there are people taking animals with them anywhere in the US under the license that they are there for emotional support or something? Not seeing eye dogs or medical issue-dogs, but literally rabbits or chickens or ponies.Since when do you have to explain why you have a pet anyway? Why do I have a spider well why do people have birds? Why do people have cats? They don't serve any purpose since there aren't any police cats or seeing eye cats last I checked.
But pet dogs are useless too. Service dogs are different from plain pets dogs.Since when do you have to explain why you have a pet anyway? Why do I have a spider well why do people have birds? Why do people have cats? They don't serve any purpose since there aren't any police cats or seeing eye cats last I checked.
