Some animal rights activists are fighting to replace the term 'owner' with 'guardian' to convey a more balanced relationship between a person and her or his pet. Do you agree or disagree with the importance of this mission?
I'm all for people trying to prevent animals from abuse because I believe animals were a responsibility God gave man. But this is just idiotic. Owner or guardian... frankly, it doesn't matter because your pet is never going to understand the difference nor will it mean you have any less of a responsibility to take care of them.
Frankly, guardian kind of sounds less like a permanent situation that OWNING a pet should be.
Guess what? I OWN my cat and she loves me for it.
