Many people decide to get a pet just to add a little bit of joy into their apartments. Most often people choose dogs and cats. These cute animals get so attached to their owners that their loyalty and affection can even become an example for human beings. However, we do not always rush to follow it. If anything, we pay for our pets` fidelity and sincere love with cruel betrayal. And it is not uncommon.
Many people get a kitten or a puppy because of their child`s nagging, or simply because they get bored. They do so without realizing that once their pet grows up, it will be much more troublesome to take care of. And when such owners start facing these problems, they just decide to get rid of the animal. They take their pet out of the city and into the woods, or simply throw it out into the streets. Hungry, scrawny, sick and worn out stray animals are a common addition to the street scenes of any city.
Anyone who has ever looked into the eyes of a stray dog knows very well how kind, smart and sad they are. It is almost as if such dogs understand that they are innocent victims, but they humbly accept their fate because their owners decided so – the same owners who attached them to themselves as little puppies just for entertainment.
“You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed,” as famous Little Prince said. We should always remember about those living beings which we led to believe in our love, and never disappoint them.
People, please, do not hurt your pets! They still believe in our kindness…
