I have a confession, I’ve messed up with this blog. The last two Sunday Screenshots are deleted – it turns out you can’t just delete all the pics in your library on this site and they’ll stay in the posts. All those screenshots are gone!! So I’ve had to remove the blogs too!
In light of that, I’m doing a special edition 2-part Screenshots this week. The first, today, is on the theme of parents who are offended by anything to do with pets – calling ourselves “pet parents”, “comparing” our pets to their sprogs, saying we love our animals like they love their kids etc. These particular parents bother me probably more than any other. WHY do they get so angry?
Lets get into it then, there’s a LOT to get through…
You “love your dog more than anything”? Yet you’re throwing him out of his family home for a baby who is not even here yet, because EXPENSIVE! If you can’t afford a dog and a baby, I highly doubt you can afford a baby on it’s own. Don’t pretend you care about that dog when you come out with it’s “ridiculous” to put dogs on pedestals. I bet you’ll be putting your potato on a pedestal when the little blighter is pushed into this God-forsaken world. I just hope that dog’s next owners actually DO love him, not YOUR kind of conditional “love”.
Nope – kids are not pets! I wouldn’t be that cruel, pets are way better! Cuter, cuddlier, more loyal, less messy… And here’s a shocker for you. We don’t believe having a pet is the same as having a baby. That’s why we have pets and not babies. Oh, unless you’re having a pop at infertile people. Because that’s the other scenario. What a lovely person you are!
My cat poos inside, we feed her a variety of food and as for partying – well yeah, we can leave a cat for a few hours. You chose to have kid instead of a pet, so stop whinging and get on with parenting it!
She’s saying she’s been called rude and dramatic for saying it’s offensive for someone to compare their dog to her kid. I’m inclined to agree – poor dog. Fancy being compared to a human child. Urgh! Cue the OTT declarations of “no love like a mother’s love”, bla bla bla.
I’m going to tell YOU a story! This tweet makes YOU look like the joke. It makes you seem like an animal-hating, over-dramatic weirdo. So you bored someone who doesn’t have kids with shit about your snot-rocket, and they didn’t know what to say. So in an attempt to say SOMETHING, they spoke about their dog. Well diddums! Perhaps don’t drone on about your kid next time, nobody cares, FELICIA!!!
And y’know what? FUCK YOU!!!! Fuck you up, down and sideways. You’re not special, your kid is not special, only you really give a shit about your damn mini me, just remember that. Literally NOBODY feels the same way you do about it!
I have no idea what this is all about. I’m sure a Prince would come before some snotty children. And to many people, so do dogs. So, perhaps it’s you who’s sick for not agreeing. lol
Are… are you seriously telling me what I’m not permitted to say? Who the hell are you? Some random parent with some huge superiority complex apparently.
You. are. not. the. boss. of. me!!!
Someone is in their feelings that there’s a Pet Parents Day!! There’s a lot of days I think are stupid – but I don’t feel the need to compose butthurt tweets about them. Dude needs to chill!
Another breeder telling me what I can’t say. Shove your Wednesday whine up your minge luv!
Hey random person on the internet. We are whatever the hell we want to call ourselves. Screw you, miserable moo!
Do kids answer that question then? Its usually rhetorical I thought. I’m more likely to get a defiant “meow” out of my cat, because y’know they can recognise the tone of voice and totally know they’re being naughty! Just another parent who knows nothing about animals!
“Pethood”… I love that! Though it sounds more like it’s related to the animal and not the pet parent. But it’s still cute. Well done parent! See, you DID do something useful today other than cleaning up baby sick and changing a nappy. I think you need that Prozac more than any pet parent though.
So many mamas pissed off that pet parents jokingly refer to themselves on Mother’s Day. They’re SO offended, like it takes away from their celebrations. How about get on with your Mother’s Day and stop concerning yourself with what others are doing?
So this absolute delight decided to shame someone on Twitter who does a lot of good work and fundraising for animal charities, and was recognised for it. Bitch of the Year here is pissed that all she helps are animals – I mean Christians are apparently all about children, they’re not supposed to care about animals. Apparently!? This is a particularly vile message that I am so glad nobody responded to or even liked. So, bitch, maybe she does “dislie” kids, maybe she doesn’t. But she is clearly not selfish or she’d be spending her money on herself. So take your disgusting, miserable self and change a stinking nappy!
They’re called reigns, and they’re for keeping kids close to their parents at all times whilst out and about. But, if you prefer your kids running feral and possibly getting knocked down by a lorry, then you do you. I’m sure that’d make you cry harder than seeing another person’s child on reigns.
Hey kid, respect your elders and be grateful they don’t have two screaming babies. You say #havesomekids – but they do. Two cute little poodles. I’m sure they prefer them to their sulky, bratty niece.
We realise that, we realise that, WE REALISE THAT!!! STFU!
If my cat said my name 3,258 times in a day, it’d be the cutest thing ever! If a kid did the same, I’d want to rip my ears off my head. So enjoy your hell, sweetheart.
She was “discussed”, the poor thing. This long ass essay can be said in one sentence; “Dogs came to the restaurant we were at, we think dogs are dirty and beneath us so we left in DISCUSSED”. I’m sure they all cheered after your fat ass had left!!
Oh no, a company marketing their product to someone other than parents with 2.4 kids. That’s just so… SAD!!! Oh get the hell over it!
A “mangy mutt”? “But yeah lets save some dogs”… You complete arsewipe!!! Child abus is rampant is it… you know what else is rampant? Fucking animal abuse!! And there are way less laws in place to prevent it. The video he’s referencing was a video about abandoning animals, the driver takes their child out to the middle of nowhere, dumps her there and drives off. It’s to say “you wouldn’t do this to your child, so don’t do it to an animal”. How anyone could do that to an innocent animal is WAY beyond my comprehension, I’ll be honest. And this douche-nozzle has decided it’s putting down child abuse, and making dogs seem to be equal to kids. I don’t know what words I have for him really. He is probably the type that would do that to a pet just because they got bored of the animal. Absolute. Piece. Of. Shit!!!!
The last one is a long chat on the same thread on Facebook. A bunch of mummies discussing the woes of those awful pet parents trying to muscle in on THEIR Mother’s Day. How it effects them, I have literally NO idea. But the crazy ranges from basic level right up to strait jacket level! Lets see;
The instigator is K. She doesn’t like people she doesn’t know and will never meet jokingly saying that Mother’s Day is also for them. It doesn’t hurt her at all in any way whatsoever, but she likes to feel superior and laugh at these people – who actually include infertile people. Because y’know, HAHA, she can make babies and store them in her womb! C comes in to disagree, but even she is just laughed at.
She doubles down on her superiority complex here with the old “you won’t know until you have BABIES” cliche. C is my favourite here, it’s like fighting an ever growing gang though. And M comes in at the end to be an out and out bitch!!! And in the process she tells adoptive parents they’re shit too. Nice one M.
And here we have the infertile friend, who has to be feeling a bit offended right now. But K still doesn’t back down. In fact, she is basically implying J should’ve gone down the long, expensive route of adopting a human child instead of pouring that love and maternal instinct into a dog who will give her nothing but unconditional love in return. Get over yourself K!!
Ah but I IDENTIFY as a mother. lol And why do they think we consider it to be the same? Those of us who are childfree by choice and not because we can’t have kids, made a conscious choice to have an animal and not a baby. Because we prefer animals. And yes we can call ourselves mothers to those animals.
M agrees 100 (God I hate that 100 thing). C made a funny… I think. And she lets it bother her even though she’s childless herself. If that’s not fucking ridiculous, I don’t know what is.
Whew, calm down there K! Don’t blow a gasket girl. I am glad you’re there to tell us pet parents though that there are differences. I mean, I thought it was the same – all of us with furbabies did. Damn, K, you really opened my eyes! Thank you.
Well C darling, if that’s what you think owning a dog is all about then I’m just glad you don’t have one. I haven’t owned a dog – I’m a cat person, though I love all animals – but keeping them in a crate while you go pamper yourself is being neglectful and cruel. And you’re supposed to walk dogs more than once a day, not just let them in the back yard to do their business. Anyway, technically, you could keep your sprog in a cage and make him shit outside. I mean, CPS would want to know about it, but you still could. lol
This has been long, so I’ll wrap it up for the day.
