Well I have a few cousins who love animals - then those who hate them My little cousin helped me bathe my poop covered broody the other day. Then some who would call me disgusting for doing such a thing. I love my cousins TO DEATH. Really. I do. We all get along amazingly, I just wish they would take a look at things in my veiw. One cousin called me an animal hoarder for having 1 bunny, 1 cat, 3 dogs, 1 parrot and 9 chickens, who are all in very good living conditions, and very well cared for. Just the fact that I have them. My aunt thought my 20 year old cousin was going to go absolutely crazy because the aunt's dog (Who is less than 10 pounds) was jumping up beside the cousin. She said my cousin kept talking about how much she hates dogs. My mom told my aunt to tell the cousin ~ "Look, YOUR in the DOG'S house, using OUR storm shelter, so if you have a problem, feel free to set outside" Ahh. I guess I'll just have to eventually tell them how *I* feel.
