It's a conspiracy by vets to keep pets alive long past their expiration date. I was not offered euthanasia as an option when my cat developed diabetes. Instead they prescribed a grand worth of paraphernalia and expected me to give him insulin twice a day. Needless to say, puddy cat was not amused and started secretly peeing behind the couch. Now I need to spend another four grand replacing the carpets. And I actually had to argue with the vet to let me put him down. He even tried to upsell me on the gold-star cremation package. I never want to go to the vet again!!
I have neither children nor pets. But I am sure I wouldn't have time for either! I need to get married in order to at least, make time for something else other than, well, work and hanging out with my friends!
