One Craigslist user has had enough of people abandoning their pets, and using the internet as a way to "offload" them. So she took to the site to share a thought provoking advertisement about why getting a pet is a big decision that shouldn't be taken lightly...
“I have had her for six years. She has been frustrating and infuriating at times. She has cost me money I wanted to spend on other things. She has been inconvenient at times. I’ve had to arrange my life with her in mind. I wouldn’t trade any of it for anything in the world, because I love her and she brings me joy. Now, to get to the point of this post. I want to tell you about something amazing that I did. I MOVED. I moved three times actually. Amazingly, I KEPT MY DOG! Can you imagine? Did you know someone can move and still keep their dog? What an amazing concept, isn’t it? Oh, I also got married, had a baby, and changed jobs, AND STILL MANAGED TO KEEP MY DOG! Am I the only human being alive who’s been able to do this? See that little cat next [to] my dog in the picture, well we just found out she has AIDS, yes, feline AIDS. She will require expensive medicine for the rest of her short life. Guess what? I’M KEEPING THE CAT TOO. I’m not going to dump her off on Craigslist to assuage some mild hint of guilt I feel because I’m too lazy, weak and irresponsible to fulfill a commitment I made to a living, loving animal. To all you who do otherwise, may God keep you, though you don’t deserve it.”
