Every Owner On Youtube Abuses Their Pet/s

:iconspudfuzz:
Spudfuzz Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Seriously? I swear everytime I'm looking at videos captured of pets in their funny/ best moments, some grossly malinformed turdherder is screaming animal rights or abuses. For example my favourite video of a cockatoo with a 'tude: [link]
has arguments all up and down about birds being forced to live in cages or that the bird in the video was distressed or some shit.

It was very clearly enjoying the joke with it's owner as evidenced by it's instant attitude change at the end where he goes to pat the bird among other body language signs. Teaching your bird to cuss does't make you a bad owner by default, the bird doesn't even know what it's saying unless you teach it to associate phrases with certain actions.

Pretty much anything you do with your pet is somehow going to register as animal abuse to someone else because their ethics differ from your own.

I agree, every time somebody uploads a video of their pet and it gets a decent amount of views, people start preaching about animal rights or that the video is animal abuse. They always tell others that they're horrible pet owners, even when they don't know anything. It's always been something that annoyed me.

I was actually discussing this with my boyfriend the other day, I used to have a territorial rabbit who hated my sisters male rabbit. They were kept in separate hutches and I had a video up where my sisters rabbit was out of his hutch for his daily exercise and every time he ran past my rabbits hutch she would practically roar at him. It didn't get any comments but got a few down votes.
Everyone just puts on an act on the internet, I bet half of these people screaming abuse on youtube do the same things to their own pets.

I've just read the first comment posted on the video. Have you read it? "I don't work for PETA" WTF!? O_o'''
I myself am a huge fan of PETA, and there's nothing wrong with this video O_o That guy isn't beating the bird up or anything...
I wanted to post a funny video of my vegan cat stealing my vegetables, but I think I'll just keep it for myself. Too many retards out there :stare:

Vegan cat..? I'm not one to quickly say that something is animal abuse, but cats are strict carnivores.. You should really feed him meat.
If you don't want to feed your pets meat, then get a strict herbivore like a bunny or a goat.

Nah don't worry, I take good care of my cats :) They have their own cat food. I like to call her "vegan" because she steals my vegetables and drink in my soy milk glasses (gotta watch her), but I don't feed them only vegetables.

It is so damn irritating that every time I look at a video with someones exotic pet it is "abuse" There no comments like that in this vid (surprisingly) .[link]
But you know some moron is going to come along and say OmG it belongs in teh wild aminal abuse!!1! The ignorance is beyond irritating for people who do a damn fine job of taking care of these animals. I fear all the fecking retards in this country are going to keep me from my dream of having a pet fox.:facepalm: If people knew anything they would know most people actually buy these animals from breeders and that they are not "cruelly ripped from their homes in the wild". Any exotic animal can be perfectly happy with the right person. People should try to really look at both sides of the story before they judge. I know a few people with bobcats that are better behaved then most peoples dogs.

People only see the bad because thats what the media likes to portray.

Sigh, End exotic rant.

I posted up a video of my dog Mallory, who unfortunately suffers from Hyperthyroidism. This causes her to be fatter than she should, even though I have her on a special diet and I exercise her every day, yet she still is somewhat overweight. I'm so terrified that people are going to be total dickcheeses and write that I'm an abusive owner. :(

This is the reason why I'm a little afraid of making and posting videos of my pet lovebird. She plucks her feathers, and the reason why she has bald spots is NOT from abuse. Because apparently on YouTube, bald spots or scraggy looks = THE ANIMAL IS ABUSED CALL THE GODDAMN HUMANE SOCIETY. They don't realize that even the most loved parrots can pluck out their own feathers. Next thing you know, even LOOKING at an animal will be considered animal abuse on YouTube.

My sisters first lovebird used to do that, his neck was completely featherless, it looked freaky. Try adding something new in the cage, because that is a sign of boredom.
I was doing a behavior study on one of her current lovebirds last year, she had started showing similar behaviors, once I added a foraging toy it was severely reduced.

What sucks though, is that she's not interested in toys. Give her one, and she'll either play with it briefly, poop on it, or just ignore it. She also spends a lot of time out of her cage, where she has more to explore, and she's around people a lot.

People who claim that something's animal abuse has never SEEN animal abuse. . .

And also they don't realize that self-mutilation like plucking is extremely hard to stop. Princess Peach (My lovebird) has been plucking since 2007 (Though her plucking isn't as bad as it used to be), and by the looks of it, there's nothing we can do about except scold her every time she tries to pluck and make sure she's getting enough nutrients. Is trying to help stop mutilation abuse?

That video made me so uncomfortable. Not that the bird is abused, really, but like why is this guy yelling? He obviously does it regularly if the bird has learned to imitate tons of garbled threats. It almost sounds like people abuse is going on. :lol:

I was once called an animal abuser for waiting 30 seconds to feed my cat because I wanted to hear her meow. She's just so cute and sweet when she does it. She didn't starve to death in 30 seconds...

Lmao, wow. I used to get my cat to "beg" before I gave her dinner. It was a trick she sort of learnt on her own and I helped her along. I think it would have taken an extra min before she got her food? I guess that makes me twice the abuser! :nuu:

Plus it trains my cat to ask for her food nicely instead of knocking shit over and being a bitch. I still can't get her to ask nicely 100% of the time.

Ugh, I know right? Fucking idiots. Then again, it's YouTube. What can you do?

Hehe, one of my favorite "THAT'S CRUEL!" comments was on a video where the owner of a cat put sticky paper on his kitchen counter to train it to stop getting up there (you know, stop stealing food, hygiene reasons etc.). It stuck to the cats foot, and the cat bolts off in a hilarious fashion with this piece of paper stuck to its foot (as they do) :laughing:

And this person said something like:"Well maybe you shouldn't have food on there in the first place!". And someone retorted "Well I ain't gonna be cutting my vegetables on the roof now, am I?"

Damn good show!

If somebody has the means and will to properly care for an animal for its entire lifetime (and has a plan in place should they find themselves unable to), let them do so. There's nothing wrong with providing a creature a lifetime of free room and board because you like it.

Another thing that bothers me is when people lose their minds over someone taking proper care of their reptile or invertebrate pet (ie, feeding it). These are the ones feed their dogs and cats factory-farmed animal biproducts every day but freak out when a snake has to swallow a dead pinky mouse once a week.

My favourite cat video 'how to wrap up a cat for christmas' has comments saying 'ommggggg so mean!!!', but at the end of the day, it's a cat. Anyone who's been in contact with a cat for a fair while will tell you straight up a cat will not do anything that it doesn't want to.

Putting animals in stupid outfits should qualify as abuse in an of itself. Look at the poor things, youtube people. I hope you're proud now that you've officially destroyed what little social life your pet has.
