You've all heard it! Here is why it is not the same. Feel free to add some!
1. You can give them away.
2. It is acceptable to lock them in a cage.
3. You can leave them outside the supermarket.
4. Convention says you chuck them in the boot of the car.
5. You feed them by putting a bowl of mush on the floor when you feel like it.
6. Their teeth shouldn't go anywhere near your nipples. Ideally.
7. They don't ask why.
8. You take them to the vet once a year if you're lucky (rather than the doctor every week).
9. When they wake you up at the crack of dawn you can throw them a bone and shout at them to shut up.
10. They don't have to go to god damn awful birthday parties.
