I have nothing against pets and I’ve had my fair share of them over the course of my lifetime. But animal lovers are annoying and do I mean annoying. I’ve had cats, dogs, fish, ferrets, lizards, hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs, birds, you name it. So, it’s not like I do not have any experience or understand the cuteness factor if you will, but animal lovers are off the chain.
10 Reasons Animal Lovers Are Annoying To The Rest Of Us
1. Animals Are Treated Like Humans (Sometimes More Important)
Now, I can understand that animals are part of the family and/or an integral part of your life if you’re single and possibly live alone. I get that. So, explain to me why there was so much outrage over the gorilla incident at the zoo over the summer. It made national news for Pete’s sake. What incident? The gorilla was shot and killed, because it had grabbed a boy who had fallen into it’s cage. Animal lovers from coast to coast lost their minds. It’s like that gorilla was a human being or something. Animals are not human and shouldn’t be treated as such.
2. You Give Animals Preferential Treatment
This is a great example. I promise not to get too long winded here. In my home I have an in-law apartment that we rent out to earn additional income. Mind you, I live in Massachusetts so we get our fair share of snow in the winter. We had a tenant who had a dog. When it snowed the tenant asked me to snow blow a path that went around my backyard so the dog had a way to get some exercise. Seriously? Yes, I am not kidding. Unbelievable. My next question would be if you had a kid would you ask me to do the same thing? Probably not. You animal people are wacko!
3. All You Do Is Talk about Your Pets
Honestly, no one cares if you go on and on about your dog or whatever animal you have. Hell those of us who have kids don’t talk about them as much as you do your dog, cat, or whatever pet you have. I mean get a hobby or a part-time job. Something.
4. You Complain That You Have To Take Them Out In The Rain
Oh, poor fluffy has to go tinkle and you need to take her out and it’s raining or worse snowing outside. I mean really? Give it a rest. Please. No one put a gun to your head and said you had to get fluffy in the first place. No one really wants to hear that.
5. You Don’t Want To Leave Your Dog So You Can’t Go On Vacation
That’s makes zero sense. You can’t leave Spot with the next door neighbor for a few days? Really? I am sure Spot will be just fine for a few days without you and vice versa. This turns into a big ordeal for people. And if the neighbor can’t watch your dog have a relative or oh my god, put Spot in a kennel. You would’ve thought you were leaving your infant child behind. It’s a dog, it will be okay. I promise you.
6. Your Animals Are Going To Put You In The Poor House
Why? All of the vet bills, food, grooming, outfits, etc. Are you for real? Well no one said you need to have that many animals. And by many animals I mean 2 or more. And for the record we don’t care. It’s not our problem. Don’t have so many animals.
7. You Feel The Need To Rescue Every Stray Cat or Dog AND YOU KEEP THEM ALL!
Why? Don’t you have enough going on in your life without adding more animals to it? I bet you do. God bless my Mom as she is one animal lover that does this all the time. I affectionately call her Dr. Dolittle. It’s very nice of her to do that. It’s annoying to the rest of us to hear about all of your animal issues as you brought that on yourself if those strays end up causing an issue with your existing crew.
8. There Is Dog And Cat Hair All Over Your House
Which means the minute we sit down on your furniture we become covered in pet fair, which is annoying and borderline disgusting depending on what type of animals live in that house. Now when we go home we have to do a load of laundry to get our clothes clean again. Not to mention if we’re allergic to either dogs or cats. This will make our eyes water, becoming puffy while we sneeze up a storm.
9. No Matter How Good Your Animals Are They Still Jump Up On Us
Even though your animals are well behaved for whatever reason when we walk in your house, you tell the dog not to jump. What do they do? They jump. Our clothes get dirty and we get the smell of dog or cat on us immediately. That’s extremely annoying, especially if we were stopping by for a quick second on our way out somewhere.
10. Your Animals Are Great With Kids
This really gets under our skin. If we bring our little one(s) with us and you say oh, our dog LOVES kids, it will be fine. Next thing you know little Jimmy comes running into the room where we’re sitting screaming saying the dog bit him. How annoying is that? Extremely. Granted in some cases the kid provoked the dog which caused the bite, but a lot of the time it’s the exact opposite. This probably has to be the number # 1 reason why animal lovers are annoying.
