    My bank-robber ISTP friend who went through a life of becoming "hard" in and out of various institutions seemed to do a complete character shift when he would tend and observe feral rabbits in his neighborhood.

    It was hard not to laugh at him on how serious and focused he was about his rabbits. My best friend and I found the apparent hard gangster/soft husbandry contrast hilarious but we kept the joke secret because tending these rabbits seemed like such a high value with the ISTP and showing us the rabbits was him demonstrating trust to us.

    ^Haha exactly!!! Totally hit the nail on the head.

    I could sympathize with Uncle Frank of being a bit uncomfortable at first and eventually getting into the grove of the "ISTP animal kinship/husbandry" experience.

If I got a pet again, I'd probably go for fish and get a nicer tank with a pump/filter. I know there's maintenance there too, but it would be less than once a week for changing the water.

    I grew up with dogs my whole life. I didn't realize how much I'm not a dog person until I went to college and didn't have to deal with them. I honestly can't stand living with dogs anymore. I hate it at my parents house 'cause the dogs are everywhere. And dogs are fucking needy. And they make everything reek of dog. Nothing smells like it should. Nothing is hair-free. And they're a chore and a big old drain on the bank account.

    If I never have a dog again, I think I'll be pretty happy. It's a little unfortunate that my man wants a dog someday.
    I share a similar view... The smells are what get me. There are people out there who become accustomed to the dog smell and it doesn't bother them, but I cannot stand being in a house that smells like wet, unwashed dog. Cats are just the same except worse, either you smell the litter box or you smell their spray, which incidentally they *love* to spray their nasty-ass smell all over garages and tool sets, not to mention urine can cause substansial rust.

    Screw pets, if I wanted to clean up after something and feed it all the time I'd rather just have a kid. At least they can learn to clean up their own filth.

    if we're talking about Socionics ISTps here, I adore animals, if I had a say in it we'd have several dogs running around in the house... the man is allergic to dogs however, and I'm allergic to cats

    I still want another dog though, dammit :steam:

    I like dogs because of their heightened outward responsiveness to interaction with humans. That said, they are a huge chore to take care of, and they pretty much destroy your living area if you keep them indoors. Additionally, they are (as others have mentioned) extremely needy.

    I prefer cats because they are less work. They have their own daily agendas that they go about without needing or wanting your attention. They do need to be neutered/spayed, though, or else they will spray all over the fucking place.
