16 People Who Swore They Didn’t Want A Pet

Pets have a way of enriching our lives, often whether we want them to or not.

Many people think they don’t want to deal with the hassle of caring for pets, yet once they begrudgingly allow these fur babies into their lives, they suddenly find that they can no longer live without them! Pets are just so cute, loyal, and easy to snuggle with… can you blame people for falling for them?
