Why Fish make better pets than Dogs and Cats. 1. Fish don't shed. 2. I've never had to wipe muddy fin prints off my clothes. 3. I've never been out riding around in my neighborhood at 2am looking for my fish. 4. Fish don't sniff the butts of my guests. 5. I've never had to scrub warm fish barf out of a carpet. 6. I've never squashed a fish poop on the way to the fridge in the middle of the night. 7. My fish don't keep up the whole neighborhood with their **** incessant barking. 8. A fish has never made me feel itchy or sneezy. 9. I don't need to worry about my fish stealing my dinner when I'm not looking. 10. A fish has never eaten a hole in my sofa. 11. Fish don't get hair (or scales) in the food. 12. Fish don't chew or shred your favorite shoes. 13. Fish won't share your bed and slowly work you to the floor. 14. An unexpected pregnancy is a fun thing in the aquarium. 15. Fish will not trip you going up or down the stairs. 16. Fish are not jealous of the new baby. 17. You never worry about vicious fish getting loose and attacking children in the neighborhood. 18. The only time you get wet is when you want to, not 3 am in the driving rain or blizzard. 19. Fish won' mount your leg or the guest's leg. 20. You won't walk in the kitchen for seconds and find your fish eating out of the pot.
