If you don't support pets then, you've just doomed 56 species of toy dogs(chuhuahuas etc..)

Pets don't live the life as their wild relatives live ; also in the country I live [BHARAT] people don't treate pets and animals that wisely. Thus , for hte sake of humanity we shud take some action. What is ur observation?

I would have to say yes but the person would really need alot of free time on their hands to take care of an animal. I have a couple of pets and I'm with them most of the time.

So, the question thus is -' if we don't have enough time , should we keep pets ? '

I think the exception of keeping a pet to a wild animal is that a pet, in most cases, doesn't know it's being held captive from the 'wide world' if you could call it that. A pet is, usually, born from a pet, and so-forth. If pets, such as cats for example, were to feel they were being held captive then in most cases they have every opportunity to escape. However, my cat returns to my door every time it opens- so I'm guessing he likes his security. But, I suppose, you shouldn't keep a pet if you are unable to or you know that you can't afford to keep up the expenses, or spend time with it. And if there is any chance that someone would be nasty in any way to a pet, then I strongly suggest they don't have one.

If you already have a pet for a long time you should keep him. Why? Because they already adapted to live in houses as pets. They are not adapted to live in the wild or by means they're rate of surviving in the wild is low. But if you find a wild animal and want to make it a pet, DONT. They're adapted to live in the wild not as pets.

I think, pets are adapted to home. I have a cat. He sleeps with me since he came home.(Do you know a wild animal which sleeps with human without hurting?) If I leave him to the wild life he will probably die.
So, I think, keeping pets is right.

How and when did domestication happen in the first place; and what was the first animal to be domesticated?

My 8th grade teacher said it was the dog. But i never had true faith in that man, he had been to jail...

:shock: :D Haha, funny. I think dogs became domesticated from wolf decendants which learnt that by following nomadic human groups, would find leftovers of food. Eventually these wolfs got used to humans, and vice versa leading to domestication. But horses seem likely to have been domesticated early, as they would be most useful to have around.
