“To my mind, the only possible pet is a cow. Cows love you. They will listen to your problems and never ask a thing in return. They will be your friends forever. And when you get tired of them, you can kill and eat them.
"Animals have families and feelings, and to think that kindness before killing them is an answer is totally wrong. Humans have no need for animal products." - Howard Lynman, former cattle rancher turned vegan
I just love pigs. My grandmother once said that baby pigs are probably the most perfect animal baby. And as I had raised them (farm pigs), as well as having a pot bellied pig for many years, I have to agree. Very, very smart as well.
