Have you ever had a conversation with somebody who you thought you were getting along with really well?
This is of course, until they drop the biggest bomb shell.
That they don’t like pets! And not just a specific type of pet. BUT ALL PETS!
In that moment, you feel like the world around you has stopped turning.
Food no longer has flavour to it. Everything looks different. You feel different.
And for one simple reason.
There are things, that only you, as a pet owner, will understand. And things that other non pet owners simply don’t.
So here is the list you’ve been waiting for.
Ten things that only pet owners will understand.
Finding pet memes funnier than regular memes. Actually what other memes even exist?
Feeling that instant connection with somebody who owns the same pet as you.
You no longer need an alarm clock. Actually, what even is an alarm clock? Your pet just wakes you up in the morning.
They’re “family”, not just a “pet”. And you have had to have this conversation numerous times as well. Don’t worry, its just something non-pet owners don’t understand.
Your financial priorities differ from non-pet owners. You need a new couch? That can wait, because you would rather splurge on a deep skin exfoliation for your dog or treat your pet to some new toys. They deserve it right?
You notice your vocabulary changing and you start talking to humans the same way you would talk to your pet.
Holiday? Sounds great, but let me find a pet sitter first.
Go out Saturday night? Let me find a pet sitter.
You constantly think about your pet when you’re not with them. Like all the time. Twenty-four seven. You wonder what they are doing and thinking about all day and regret not being able to spend every second with them.
You have had to use your lunch break to rush home and feed your pet. Or you forgot to leave the air conditioner on for them on a scorching hot day. Or you’ve raced home just to spend time with them.
