If you’re looking for the “cheapest/easiest” pet
- don’t get a pet
THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST ACCURATE POST I HAVE EVER SEEN
Wait wait wait.
When I got my cat I was suffering from depression and living off of disability income. I got a cat rather than a dog because they are cheaper and easier. I needed a cheaper pet because my income was too low to properly meet a dog’s needs. I needed an easier pet because my depression would have made it too difficult to take a dog out and give it the exercise it needs.
My cat is extremely well taken care of and we love each other very much. A dog would have been unmanageable for me. I got a cheaper and easier pet because I had the pets needs in mind not my own.
So please do not assume that wanting a cheaper and easier pet always means putting your needs before the animal. Because it can be the opposite. It can mean your love for animals causes you to be aware of your limits and not get a pet that you will be unable to properly care for.
You do not choose your recovered weight, shape, or dress size.
That’s the whole point.
You let go of the ‘control’, and let your body maintain its own optimal size (which it is perfectly capable of, without restriction/calorie counting/workouts ‘just in case’).
