I have consistently considered myself to be an creature lover.
I cannot remember a single time in my life when I did not have a lot of pets to keep myself and others company and make myself and others cheerful.
I really like having residing creatures in my space and anywhere to direct my attention when I am feeling exasperated. However, occasionally the creatures can become the cause of my exasperated… And that is not such a fun time anymore. For instance, when I found out that my new pet is completely averse to warm air it was a bit of a struggle. For the longest time I have lived in a warm and humid climate which honestly doesn’t bother me. I am fairly cold-blooded, so I can stay pretty comfortable even without advanced a/c keeping myself and others cool in the dead of Summer. However, it does get to be oppressively sizzling and sticky around here in the summertime. Normally I keep my a/c component at a relatively conservative setting so that I do not overworked the cooling system or create extra professional heating, cooling, and air quality control appointments for myself. You have to watch out with your energy expenditure and routine Heating plus Air Conditioning wear and tear around these parts. That being said, the moment that my new pet stepped outside and felt the warm summer time sunlight last year… He ran right back inside the a/c. He then loudly complained for the rest of the afternoon when the A/C clearly was not cool enough. These afternoons he basically refuses to go outside and I have to run my a/c at level 11. I’m start to wonder if I’m still an creature man.
