It’s time the authorities stepped in to do something.
People are discriminating against cats.
And it needs to stop.
The statistics are plain as day: Dog ownership outpaces cat ownership 3 to 1.
(And in some places, like southeast Asia, the gap is even greater due to culinary practices)
Nevertheless, this gap must be addressed.
First and foremost, our preferences for dogs or cats are subordinate to their equal rights.
Dogs and cats are the same. They’re pets.
So, why are people choosing to own dogs over cats?
Because dogs are more energetic and focused?
Cats are too! Just in different ways. Say, if there’s a string, or a small insect nearby.
It’s time humans appreciate this aspect of cats.
Another misconception about how dogs are better: That they are more trainable and more committed to help.
This is not something you should judge when choosing a pet. Why? Because why are you using your values and needs when we should be treating these pets EQUALLY.
Dogs and cats are not only equal, they’re the same. They’re pets. Just like when you hire someone for a job. Yes, there are small differences, in skills, commitment, or availability. But they’re all human, aren’t they? We are all living things. And we should all be treated equally.
Stop being selfish about what YOU need, and start thinking of the less fortunate.
The sooner government gets involved to provide more opportunity for cats and to equalize our choices, the better.
