Have you heard about this? OctoMom wants to get a pet for her and her 14 kids. PETA is pissed. She said the kids want a dog, but she's thinking about getting a pig. I don't understand people who can't afford to take care of their own families wanting to get pets. I have 2 kids, I'm sure they (and my hubby) would LOVE a dog. We don't think we could care for it properly at the moment so we don't have one. She is on all kinds of public assistance including 8 state paid nannies.
I've been on state aid, food stamps, medicaid and day care assistance. I had to prove where every penny I had came from and had to prove that I NEEDED the help. If you can afford to get and take care of a pet, you don't need state aid.
