question1: Why do you think animals are important to people?

when you got an unfilial eldest son and also when you found out that you are actually employing a drinking security guard ...


question2: Can you describe your relationship with animals?

its better that you raise a dog and treat him like your own son than you raise an unfilial son and also a good strong and filial dog is thousands times better the plumber next door ...





ok ... just kidding
but i heard that you got a few lovely cats or what , where are they right now ??

1- The exact reasons will vary from person to person, but in general, they represent unconditional love and companionship.

2- All of my pets, regardless of what they were initially named, I end up calling--affectionately, mind you--Stupid. I like animals, particularly cats, mid-sized (quiet) dogs, and birds, and find them relaxing.

1: I think they represent a simple relationship. One where you can love an animal and it will love you back, unconditionally (well as long as you feed it). I love spending time w/ animals, petting them, playing with them. It's just time well spent for me.

2: I think I just did, oops.

Animals arnt needy, and they dont talk back. (with the exception of a few birds).

question2: Can you describe your relationship with animals?

Ive had a rabbit before, wasnt much with it. Big rabbit that tried to tear the hell out of my arms every time it got excited, had it trained to crap in the cats litterbox. It was usually loose in our garage, and it was always interesting in seeing what people were doing. I think it was a Rex. It was a fairly large rabbit with velvety smooth fur.

My brothers older female cat hangs around with me. Its around 12 years old, maybe 13. When she is mad, she stands about 5-10 feet away from me with her back to me, face right up against the wall. I think this is so she wont have to look at me. Quite a demanding cat, really likes attention, but not too much attention. Gets jealous of things very easy, even when I sit down on the computer. The cat also hates the two younger male cats, which both are nuetered. One of the male cats seems to be... not all there mentally.

One time the older female cat was mad that she missed dinner, so she walked outside, caught a bird, brought it into the garage, killed it and made a bloody mess to clean up. Another time when she was mad, she waited till I was asleep. Then jumped down from my bed and started ripping up my homework and eating it. Seriously. I stared hearing this crinkly sound, then RIIIIIP.... a few minutes later RIIIIIP. When I woke up, I had partially eaten/chewed up confetti on the floor.

Animals are weird, just like people, sometimes. They cant talk and tell us they are mad/lonely or upset, but if you have been around one for long enough its usually easy to tell by the way they act.

1. Animals can make important companions, and they don't answer back if you have problems. In some cases they can be of great help to people, i.e for the blind. Most people have animals as pets, and have them as a faithful (normally) friend who will always listen.

2. I love animals, and our family use to breed Jack Russell terriers, and we have always had them in the family. I don't currently have one where I live as we aren't allowed pets (landlords rule). My gf loves horses,which Ireland has a great affinity with. I'm also getting used to being around cattle and sheep as well, as we live in a rural area, and helping to move them off the roads is almost a required skill.

Hope this helps
