Do you ever feel conflicted about keeping pets because it's sad when you think about the life they live in captivity?
Hanging out with my #BeardedDragon #Aussie. She likes to get out and stretch her legs for a few minutes. I don't blame her. It's kind of sad when you think about it, right? She has to see the same scenery from the same logs day in and day out.
2 are from shelters and I feel confident I'm giving them the best life compared to what could have happened with their lives.
The ones from pet stores, I like to think ending up in my care is the best thing for them.
I guess I justify it knowing the pets I have were bred to be placed for sale in a pet store. They weren't taken from the wild and they were never going to know a life outside of captivity. On the other hand, it supports the reckless business of breeding. I was thinking about that in the pet store but then I was thinking of all the wrong homes my pests could have ended up in if I didn't take them home. I'm so conflicted.
