Argumentative Essay On Pets

“Pets are humanizing. They remind us we have an obligation and responsibility to preserve and nurture and care for all life.” This is a famous quote by the famous American actor James Cromwell who acted in Star Trek and was the son of John Cromwell. This quote relates to a life-changing event in my life when I learned that sometimes pets help us realize that we have responsibility to this world.
Two years ago on a hot summer day, we were just about ready to go. My dad, mom and sister named Celina were all wearing hot summer clothes right outside my house next to my mom’s car. Yesterday, my mom surprised me by revealing that we were going to get a cat. She had explained to us that we were going to go to an animal shelter to go pick one.
“Where

Celina repeatedly shouted out in delight or disgust as she ran on ahead. As I walked on I laid my eyes on a small grey kitten peacefully sleeping on the floor. My sister came back and squealed, “Awwww, its so cute!”
My mom and dad walked over and asked us if we wanted this one.
“Sure, why not?,” I answered.
We called Rosanna over and told her that we wanted the small grey kitten.
“Good choice,” she told us. “That little guy right there is a mini persian cat.”
Rosanna walked over with some keys and unlocked the cage. She gently picked up the small cat and brought it over to the desk. It slowly opened its eyes and looked at us with big black and yellow eyes. She took a cage with a handle and lowered the kitten inside. It stood on its four paws and slowly stretched its legs. It walked around and curled up again, fast asleep.
We took the cage back to the counter as Rosanna told my parents how to take care of a pet.
“That should be $350 please. Swipe here,” said Rosanna.
As our parents payed for the kitten, I walked over to the cage slowly looking at it. It had grey and white fur, short small legs, and big eyes.
My mom walked over and asked “Do you want to carry

I picked up the cage by the handle. It felt surprisingly heavy for a small fluffy kitten He woke up and meowed as we all walked out the shelter.
I tried to move the cage as little as I could as the kitten continued to meow.
“Meow! Meow!” my sister imitated.
We put the cage down on the middle seat in the back and drove home with the kitten meowing all the way home.
When we finally got home, I saw my dad organizing the cat food, water bowl and litter box. I decided to help and got a scratch pad from the garage and also a cat bed. Its pretty tiring to set all of this up just for a pet, I thought. We got the small cage and took it into the house. As soon as we opened the cage, the kitten stood still, sniffed the floor, then ran out and hid behind his food bowl. While I walked back to garage I overheard a conversation between my mom and sister.
“What should we name him?” my sister asked.
“I don’t know, maybe after something” my mom replied “How about Mochi?” my sister queried. “It has a nice ring to it.” “Mochi. I like that,” remarked my mom.
Mochi. That’s a nice name, I thought. I saw Mochi walking up to me as he looked at me with his big, round, black eyes that seemed to lock on to me. He made a small meow and walked back into the

    When we got home, I showed Casey all the stuff we got, and showed her the monstrous cage we bought for the tiny puppy. It was kind of weird how we bought all this stuff, even though we were not totally sure we could get the dog. “Mom, we could just put the cage in the laundry room, that rooms pointless anyways.” I said, while slowly dragging the screeching crate across the tile floor. My mom was saying something but the crate was making too much noise, so I just…

    The illustrator creates movement through the ripples of water and the water dripping down the kitten’s ear. The emotion on this page is also emphasized by the direction of the kitten’s eyebrows, nose, and paws --- each example displays defeat.

    Cats were a great responsibility akin to taking care of a child. Cats live their own lives, needing attention and care. A year of pestering, however, got me the result I wanted - we went to the Toronto Humane Society to look for a cat in March of 2013. We had decided on the week of March break; my parents would be at work but I would be alone in the house, so there wouldn’t be any times when the cat was alone initially. When we first reached the Humane Society, my eyes lit up as six of seven cats were in a large, dimly lit playroom, relaxing.…
