Would you rather be a household pet or a wild animal living in your natural habitat?

I would want to be house fed and cared for and to play with children since you have to do nothing

Depends on the animal.

I like how women want to be cared for. Men just want to be free.

What?! They chew on stuff and sleep and smell each others butts and bark and eat stuff and get fed SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY'RE CUTE.
They play with each other and kids. They'll watch tv sometimes.
They chase rabbits in real life and in their dreams.
And they worry about you.

I'd love to be my dog. I've even had other people say to me that they'd like be my dog. We do spend a lot of times outdoors though.

Isn't this just a silly way to ask if you're a freedom loving republican or a nanny state dependent liberal?

If I could be my dog, I would love that. She get so much unconditional love and affection every day. We take such good care of her. Being her would be like a dream. :)

If I was one of MY cats, I'd rather be a house cat cuz I know I'd be loved and catered to and taken good care of.

By "natural habitat" you basically mean being eaten and dying 5 years earlier than you would have if you were cared for, and scrounging for food

Dogs dont care for sleeping all day. Do you realize how boring that would be? Our entertainment means nothing to them, their entertainment is going for a walk. Being a dog is like being a room all day with only a couch. Life of a dog is not fabulous, it's incredibly boring. I'd rather be free

I'd rather be a mouse, violently consumed by a rattle snake in the back yard. Than an animal that spends it's long life staring out a window, dreaming of freedom.

I find it funny that this right leaning ap would have a left leaning result to this question.

Depends on the animal. Ferrel cat vs house cat, def house cat. Wild lion vs circus lion, def wild.

Cool story bro. My only question, where's Baloo and Bagheera?!

11/05/12 5:01 am

You are SUCH an IDIOT! Do you think anyone believes that DUMB story? Do you smoke crack or meth? What a loser!

11/05/12 4:58 am

I'd much rather be free. So your telling me you'd rather be a caged bird than a free soaring Eagle? Your nuts! Also, you'd rather be a fat lazy house dog than a Lion? King of the jungle. Goes to show how lazy you people are and rather have sh*t handed to you rather than work for it. SMDH.

Nonhuman companion in my family. Our pets are beloved without being spoiled. What a life!

11/05/12 3:19 am

Eh... I disagree. I come from a very pet-friendly house. We treat our pets like brothers sisters sons and daughters. I'm not for government control but I'd love to be a house pet living with my family because, well, they're my family. Much more loving than living in the wild without love.

I am sometimes envious of my cats' life...they can sleep 20 out of 24
if they want to.

The results of this poll says something about our society.
Being cared for = Government control
People really don't get it...

I'd rather be free, but I gotta admit my dog and cat live very well.

I wouldn't want to be hunted. I'd rather be cared for by a loving person like my pets are.

I would like to sleep all day curled up next to the fireplace, be petted and have my dinner served to me. I would also do tricks for treats.

...and finally linked me back to my family. I said all that to say, life in the wild isn't an easy one. One must be determined to feed himself and his pack. I'd take the modern human life in a heartbeat. While I've come a long way after learning how to speak, read, and write, I'll always be a wolf..

...until I was about nine years old... Everything changed when I was hit by that semi as I ran across the interstate chasing a doe. I was taken to a hospital (remember, at this point in my life I had no clue what a hospital was, nor could I speak English) where they performed a bunch of tests...

...found my body. As I lie there, I remember hearing a rustling in the leaves and from the woods a pack of wolves came out. I thought for sure I was a goner, but to my surprise the alpha female brought a large piece of venison and laid it in from of me. A long story short, the wolves raised me...

Wow. I can't believe that many people want to be wild. I know from personal experience how hard the wild life is. When I was a newborn, my parents wrecked on the ride home from the hospital. My tiny body was flung from the car in the horrible crash. I've been told they searched for days and never...

My dogs get all the food they want, and a warm house to sleep in. I'd have to take that over being a stray

11/04/12 5:25 pm

I can keep my head down and do my job as well as the average prole but I can't not be the mistress of my own destiny.

11/04/12 5:18 pm

House pet. A well cared for one anyway. Trips to the groomer, treats, vacations, walks, pampering. lol

Food water shelter companionship and possibly fantastic adventure...

All depending on your owner.
