How often do you visit pets shops? You know you are an addict if it is more than once each week. Maybe you are not really an addict, maybe it is only showing how much you truly love your pets.
Some people are addicted to going to the malls, Walmarts, or bookstores. Pet lovers have a different choice for their passionate shopping. They love to get into pets shops and start hunting through all the new items, bargain racks, and investigating the latest new foods and snacks for their pets.
You know one way you can tell who these pet lovers are? Visit their homes and you will find energetic excited pets. Pets anxious to play, filled with love and playfulness. The pets are normally very healthy because their owners give them the best nutrition, feed them healthy snacks and are concerned about them. When their pets show any signs of illness they are quick to get them the vet to help them become healthy again.
You may suspect the people in the pets shops are the ones who have substituted pets for children. In most households, you will find this is completely the opposite. These pet owners love to make sure their children and pets have plenty of toys to have fun playing together. While some parents buy electronic toys to entertain their children, these avid pet owners have chosen to supply their children with living playmates. These playmates do not require batteries, do not easily break, and supply something children need, a plentiful supply of love.
Children with pets are usually happier and healthier. Instead of your children sitting inside playing with their latest Nintendo or PlayStation games they are outside throwing the ball and frisbee with the dog. They are taking their cat for a walk, contentedly sitting on the porch scratching their cat’s ears, or playing with a mouse on a string. They are active and getting fresh air.
Those trips to the pets shops are not just to get supplies for their pets, sometimes they are getting new pets. If you love fish and have a tank full of exotic fish it can be more entertaining than a big screen television. By adding new varieties of fish you expand your channels of entertainment. Visiting the pet shop is just an adventure in exploring what your next investment in entertainment will be. Some people spend extreme amounts of time in electronics stores drooling over the new home theater, pet lovers have the same passion for pets.
Which is the better addiction? When you love going to the pets shops you are expanding the love in your family, bringing everyone closer together to share in caring for an animal. You provide a common interest and playmate for the family. When you visit the mall everyone separates going their own way. Bring your family together with the love of pets, it is the healthy choice, one you will all share and may lead to continued visits to the pet stores in your town.
