People typically get a pet with good intentions to care for it and bring their family joy. However, being a good owner is more than just caring and playing. It’s about commitment, responsibility and sacrifice. A dedicated rabbit owner will confess it’s no less than a marriage bond, than the duty of a parent to a child.
“To hold from this day forward,
For better or for worse,
For richer, for poorer,
In sickness and in health,
To love and to cherish;
For this day forward until death do us part.”
This, is the duty of a pet owner to their beloved pet. Regardless if the pet was purchased, found, adopted or gifted, as the main caregiver, you means the world to them. In good days and bad, your pet will always be there for you. Similarly, you need to be there for them. They will never discriminate if you are rich or poor and they will love you no less in sickness and in health. You, as the only person who can protect them, should love and cherish them. And not to think about giving them up when they, will never give up on you.
To parents who aim to adopt a pet for their children, such commitments are too big to be made on their behalf. Instead, you need to be passionate about animals in order for your children to take after your passion. The spirit of commitment, responsibility and sacrifice can never be instructed. They has to be nurtured and cultivated. We hope more people realized the importance of being a responsible pet owner and plan ahead before acquiring a pet. For these animals will love you unconditionally till their last breath. The question is, are you ready to do the same for them?
