You have a wonderful family of four, except that two of them eat dog and cat food.
You are the proud parents of two beautiful fur children. Does this sound familiar? Your house is set up as if you had kids – you own a baby gate and your house is seemingly childproof. You get up in the middle of the night with them and your weekday mornings typically begin at 6am for a morning walk and feed. You refer to yourself as mommy and daddy and you can’t go on vacation without hiring a babysitter.
Face it, you are a parent except your ‘children’ are far more harrier than your neighbors kids.
The best part about having fur children is that you will always get unconditional love from them, they will stay cute forever and they will always love what you made for dinner. They will never talk back to you, fail out of school or turn to recreational drugs, just for fun. They are happy to cuddle in your bed and even happier to watch you and your husband have sex.
You may not feel like a parent yet but you are.
