Do You Regret getting Pets?

Pets are bigger commitments than most people realize, and we often don't talk about the regret that comes with getting one when you weren't truly ready. 

As much as I love my pets, I can't help but think about how different my life would be if I didn't have them

I have 2 dogs and 3 cats. And I really love the little guys! This story isn't about giving them up, because I'd never to that!

Before I had dogs, I would take a weekend trip on a whim. Now, I either have to plan to take them with, or pay for a sitter

My favorite cat cost me over $4000 in vet bills when he had an accident. I'd pay it again in a heartbeat

The biggest limitation to pets, and one that people don't always think about, is housing. Many rentals don't allow pets, and having numerous pets greatly limits your options
