Why Pets Should Not Wear Clothes

Pets in Clothes

The internet is full of pictures of pets dressed up in all sorts of clothes and costumes.  This is a disturbing trend.

Reasons why pets should not wear clothes:

  1. They already have fur.
  2. Do they look happy? No!
  3. It is just wrong!

The next time you are tempted to dress your pet, think again.  You will do your pet a favour by not dressing them up, and the rest of us on the internet a favour if you don’t post pictures.
