🐕‍🦺Do You Own a Pet?

Owning pets in something new in my culture. A pet is a domestic or tamed animal kept for companionship or please according to dictionary. I used to hear about pet owning as I was growing up. We used to hear about it in the developed countries like UK, Australia, US etc. However, with the growing influence of modernity, this has steadily spread to other parts of the world. Nowadays, it’s common to find people owning pets even in my community. People dogs, pussy cats, cows, name them, owned as pets. I don’t own any pet. Do you have one?

I really like cats and birds.
I used to have a parrot and a few other birds, but it has flown from its cage.
My obsession now is to have a very cute cat

I also like parrots Ad, but they are not common here in my country Uganda and I guess one needs a license to own one. How is it there, does one need to be licensed to own a parrot?

No, I don’t a pet and I think I’ll never own one. I don’t think I’ll be able to take care of the pet properly.

I don’t own any pet, because I don’t like them. Mostly the white people love keeping animals of any kind as their pet.

Edward & David, it’s true pets need time to care for them. They need their food to be prepared and they need to be cleaned etc. You have to have time for them or employ someone to look after them, which ever is your best option.

I owe a dog.  He is my best companion when I live alone like I do.  He tells me when he want to get out for exercise and then I get exercise too.  It is much fun to have a dog, but you have to be responsible and give a dog food and good treatment.  My dog is also a hunting dog so when I am in the forest or up in the mountain in the hunting season he love to hunt rabbits or hares that is a bigger rabbit in Norway.

It’s good Steinar, I had a dog but it was knocked by a bicycle and it died. I decided not to do it again.

Hi, Jackson.
I have it used to be a gift from my uncle. I thought it used to be unnecessary to own a license. There are some protected animals that are required to have a license, but that doesn’t include parrots

Jackson Mugarura answered 3 weeks ago

Yes I get your point Ad, but looks in your country it’s different from hare in my country Uganda. Here you have to get authorisation.

I don’t own any pet currently, I’m not living in my country, so it a little bit difficult to rise a pet and take care of it .i don’t have free time to take him to walk, I’m not always at home.

Given that I do not own a pet, I would like to own a dog but given that the breed of dog I would like requires a lot of attention it is difficult in the city.

Jackson Mugarura answered 3 weeks ago

Yes you are right adharad, to some extent it the wealthy who can afford those protected ones, but on the other hand if you have that ambition to own one, you don’t necessarily need to be wealthy, I think what matters is if you can afford it.

Right, Jackson.
But to be able to raise protected and licensed animals we have to have a lot of money.
Even to feed him, build cages and so on.
It costs a lot

Jackson Mugarura answered 3 weeks ago

adharad, I used to like cats, but I later hated them, they have bad habits, they sleep with children in bed at night, if milk is left not well covered, they drink it and you can mistakenly consume the remainder. They have bad habits really, I hated them.

But I think cat’s really funny, Jackson.
I can’t hate it even though you think cats have bad habits.

Hey, Jackson.
Try to raise cats and play with them.
Your character will change towards them.
Likewise me, I used to see them dirty animals but now it’s a trend to raise cats in my area.
Many cats are very clean and well groomed, therefore I really want to keep a cat

Jackson Mugarura answered 3 weeks ago

Thank you Ad, maybe I’m wrong. I have to try it again. I have long held this perception when I was young and my mom used to raise them but not recent. Maybe I need to try it out myself. Thank you again for this advice Ad.

adharad answered 3 weeks ago

Its ok, Jackson.
Maybe you need to get closer to the cat and not think too badly about it.
Really, cats are very cute and you can pet and care for them, it’s not that difficult, Jackson

I think my attitude will change Ad, that’s how I grew up seeing them, but I hope I need to take time and remove it from my conscience. Probably it can get out of me.

I’m pretty sure, Jackson.
I really believe you can really like cats.
What other animals would you like to pet?

A dog is my preferred pet Ad, I would like to have one but I my place is squeezed I plan to have a spacious place where I can have like 2 dogs living with me there.

Yes Ad, dogs are very intelligent and good friends of man. A well trained dog is an asset at home. Although I don’t have one at home now. But I plan to have like 2 in future.

Having a pet can make us less stressed when at home, I feel real.
We can play with them anytime

Another good thing with a pet dog Ad, is that I provide security at home. Intruders can not easily find the way into your home once you have dogs at home.

Login to comment.
Jackson Mugarura answered 3 weeks ago

Yes Ad, way back at home we had these animals because Dad and Mom had raised them. They were friendly and again friends to every family member. For instance a dog would escort us to the farm to graze cows the whole day, it’s an amazing memory. But one thing I disliked about the cat was waking up in the dead of night and finding it next to me in my bed.

Hi, Ad.

The problem with pet is that we have to put more attention to their healthy. When raising a pet we should treat him as humans being, by giving it all the right it deserves.

What is the procedure of obtaining a dog in your locality, Jackson? Is there any paperwork required?

There’s no special permission or procedure required Ahmad, you can buy from breeders or acquire from a neighbor or a friend. That’s all.
