I'm sorry I just don't see what you're trying to prove to me.

Domesticated animals know no other life and if thrown into the wild they will suffer and probably die. Even feral house cats do not live happy lives IMO.

Wild animals will always be wild no matter where they live. I truly believe they are not happy living in homes or any confined area.

No one will change anyone else's mind. It's up to time, experience and education. Maybe not even after that in some cases

I don't think that Olympia was giving attitude, you just gave a comment that pretty much was bashing against all pets. But that's just my interpretation.

As for a person who volunteers at the zoo and deals with some wild animals as well as domesticated animals, I think that as long as you were informed you'd be good. Many times the wild animals act 1000 times better than the domestic ones. I really think that this whole 'wild animal' thing became very over blown. I get it, the cat was cute, but I don't think the OP was suggesting that we all go get them.

Wild animals can be great pets, but not all. One of my friends has a 'wild' squirrel as a pet, she raised it from when it was a baby. It's still considered wild even though it eats peanuts from your hand. And I plan on getting some wild fish. But no one ever in this conversation said: "Let's all get tigers" which is what you are suggesting.

But those are just my little bits of opinions.

Actually, if pigs escape into the wild they will revert back to being feral

So, also they bettas we all love. Technically they should be in large rice patties and streams of southern Asia.

It also could apply to humans as well. We're technically still wild and shouldn't be in captivity. So I guess good bye daycares

Yes even them. Like what TCT said they're a big problem, even the minis.
