Day 6: What animal would you love to have as a pet?
I have wanted to get a pet miniature pig for so long now. They are just too cute!
I researched them, found some even being given away locally for free but when it came down to it, we decided not to get it.
As cute as they are, they require a lot of attention, it’ll be like having a child that lives outside. They need you to play with them, otherwise they get lonely.
It’s not like we don’t have the room. We already have a dog, chickens, rabbits and birds but we aren’t really animal kinda people. What we have all serve a purpose. The dog is our security guard and lets us know when someone arrives. The chickens provide us with eggs and the rabbits provide us with meat. They are only pets for a short amount of time. The birds are really the only animal that don’t provide us with anything because they havn’t even had any offspring since we’ve had them. The miniature pig would only be a pet, so it’ll be an expense only and extra work for us.
It also makes it hard to travel when you have a lot of animals because you have to rely on someone to come and feed them. So there’s no need to add more work for us or others.
I will just admire them from afar.
