If you are thinking about adopting an animal there are some serious questions you need to be asking yourself. A pet is at least a 10-15 year commitment so it’s important to be committed. Here is a list of 11 things to think about before you adopt a pet.
9. Are You OK With Less Free Time?
All of my friends who have pets are just as busy as actual parents. They can hardly ever hang out. And when they do, they have to head home early to take care of their pet. As Newcomb said, “You’re committing to coming home directly after work for the next 10-15 years of your life.” Personally, that sounds perfectly fine with me if it means coming home to my awesome dog.
