Chosing a pet based on your personality

Ok, heres the deal. I am committed to this whole HubMob thing and usually really enjoy it. But I tried three different times to publish a Hub about pets and have found no inspiration. I have a cake decorating class in two hours, I am babysitting three kids ages 3,4, and 5. and I am tired and in a weird mood today. My husband snored all night, well I don't actually know if it was all night because I headed to the couch after thirty minutes of trying first to nudge him over gently and then contemplating smothering him with a pillow. I feel like I have my head up my butt looking for the light at the end of the tunnel. I am pretty sure that this is no easy task as I have seen someone find the light at the end of their butt tunnel, and well it didn't look like it was too easy. So anyway on with this hub.

Here are a few ideas for choosing a pet for you based on your personaity. This is a completely unbiased list.

If you are generally annoying and easily get under peoples skin then maybe the pet for you is a flea. You could both annoy the world together.

If you are the type of person who likes to squeeze the life out of a party or anybodys good time then maybe a boa constricrtor is the perfect pet for you.

If you are afarid the world is out to get you then maybe a spider would be the perfect pet for you. And if the choose the spider as your pet, then just maybe the world really is out to get you.

If you are self centered and put yourself upon a pedastal then maybe the perfect pet for you is a cat. Ok cat people don't want to hear any complaints. You have to admit that cats are self centered and put themselves upon a pedestal. That is just the cat way.

If you are lazy and just can't pull yourself off the couch then maybe the perfect pet for you is a rock. You do not have to play with them, walk them, clean up their poo or even feed them. Let's face it if you had any other pet it would just die because you probably wouldn't get up enough energy to take care of it.

If you are abrasive and rough around the edges then maybe the pet for you is a porcupine or hedgehog. Depending of course on the degree of your abrasiveness. The less abrasive should opt for the hedgehog while the more abrasive should opt for the porcupine.

If you like to hand around in a tree, eat bananas and throw your feces at people then the pet for you may be a chimpanzee.

If you are stubborn and intolerant to others and their views then a Jackass may be the pet for you.

If you are moody and never know when your attitude might change then maybe the chamleon is the pet for you.

if you are sure of yourself and strut constanly then maybe the cock (rooster) is the pet for you.

If you are extremely cool and sexy then maybe a dog is the perfect pet for you. Need proof?

Don't tell her that I told you, but my dog gave me a lot of help with this list. She says she needed a creative outlet.

Feline Prophet 8 years ago from India don't seem to have been in a very good mood when you wrote this. And hey...are you calling me self centered and prone to putting myself on a pedestal? Oh well, perhaps you're right...I do call myself a prophet! :P

haha, Feline, you have to remember my dog helped me with this and you know how dogs feel about cats. I will try not to let her get to the computer again soon. I know that sometimes she gets up late in the night and looks at puppy porn, I know because I check the history, She doesn't know how to erase that yet. So she's hard to control sometimes. I will take away a treat or smack her with a rolled up newspaper or something. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read this.

You girls have done a great job of matching pets to personalities! And don't smack your dog (what is her name?) - she may not be a cat but I'm sure she's adorable anyway! :)

Thank you Feline, My dog or my furry daughters name is Bella and you can read more about her here

She just told me to say that I would smack her with the paper so that she could calm down any cat people that might be insulted.

Thanks for reading this, And realy I was in a yucky mood yesterday when I started this. It was raining all day and I just didn't want to do anything. Oh well I survived the day. Thanks for your kind words.

haha...I really got a kick out of the first paragraph. :)

part of the HubMob is writing about topics that might not be the easiest to write about, so I'm glad that you pushed through the snoring and everything else and actually joined!

lol - really enjoyed the snoring comment. I used to be really bothered by this as well, but now one of my dogs snores every night. My little Siberian girl is anything but ladylike! She has me so well trained that I think I would miss night snoring now if she were ever to stop. :)

Seriously though I could have had a chainsaw running within ten inches of my head and slept better. He needs some breathe righ or something.

My chihuahua is not so ladylike either but I wouldn't change her for the world. They do get us trained like that don't they.

Great job!! This was funny!! I am with you all the way. I have had days where everything is driving me nuts, there don't seem to be enough hours in the day, and it was usually caused by the loud snoring of my boyfriend. So, what sort of pet do you recommend for someone who is a cronic insomniac, lives on coffee, and hates cleaning up the poop of another animal? LOL

gwendymom profile image

gwendymom 8 years ago from Oklahoma Author

I would recomend a barn owl, because they are up all night to you will have someone to talk to, They are great listeners but they are kind of nosy and wanting to know who all the time. I am not sure owls drink coffee but I guess you could try. and if your owl lives in a barn then you just have to shovel his poop out when you shovel the poop of your other barn inhabitants. If you don't have a barn then I guess your owl can hang out on a tree limb, then cleaning the poop won't matter.

Thanks Anna Marie for reading this, I appreciate you!

My dog Bella says, she did not write that about the cats and Gwen did this all on her own.

LOL I knew it! I had never had one but I was certain that I was a "cat person". I imagine myself having some regal, dainty purebred Tomcat with a case full of throphies and ribbons.

I don't know Princessa, You are extremely cool and sexy, you could be a dog person.

Thanks so very much for coming by to read this. Not one of my better ones.

I needed a good chuckle today, and this is it! I laughed all the way through the text and was about to jump into a comment to you, when I realized I hadn't looked at the video. Well, that video was the icing on the cake. So I had to take a break, you know, compose myself, powder my nose and all that, and then come back.

All thumbs up, gwendymom! You and Bella make a very cool writing team.

Thanks Sally, I'll tell you Bella you said we make a good team. She of course thinks she has all the talent. I might have to agrre to that, she is pretty funny. I loved that video, my daughter showed that to me and I kind of based this whole hub around that. Thanks for coming by and reading.
