I personally think it is a wasteful concept in general. To breed animals only for use as pets creates life simply to keep ours entertained. Also, the supplies and materials to keep these animals in good shape (let's hope they're in good shape) is wasteful for the environment. Many people consider their pets family members, which I completely understand, and if you have a pet, that's definitely the way to treat them. I am just questioning the whole concept of animals bred only for the purpose of being a pet. However, I feel the concept of breeding is much better than the concept of capturing already-established wildlife, like when they capture fish in the ocean and take them out of their natural habitat. I feel that in a truly natural world, there would be just wildlife, with the exception of some livestock and related animals to feed the population. Of course, if everything were truly natural, there would not be KFC chicken slaughterhouses, but rather organically-grown chicken. What's your take on this?
