Neo-Pagan Modern Thoughts On Society

New studies are trying to show that sleeping with your dog or cat is dangerous to your health. Big surprise that you can get fleas or ticks from sleeping with your pets! And how much money did this study cost us?

The studies would like to show that too much interaction with your pets leads to all kinds of disease and physical ailments. Was this study funded by an Anti-Animal group? Most probably from the likes of the idiotic findings.

Man has slept with animals in close proximity from the time we first discovered fire and gay cavemen started paintings the walls of the tribes caves. Dogs slept with their nomadic tribal brothers. Cats slept with their Egyptian, pyramid building sisters. Sheep, goats, geese and ducks slept with their pagan tribes folk through all of Europe.

Truly, some diseases may be spread by dirty, unwashed animals in your bed. (Sounds kind of like a lot of men I know actually!) But the advantages of that deep, loving companionship with your dog or cat far outweigh any ludicrous study results.

The truth is, that more viral bacteria is carried in the human mouth, kiss or bite than in the saliva of your pet. Notice when a dog or cat has an injury, they lick that injury to speed up its healing. And it does indeed heal faster. Now try this study, pick up a one nighter at your local bar. Have the stranger lick one of your cuts or scratches. What? No? You don’t think that is safe? Well you are right. Your human saliva will impart many “special” unwanted gifts into the blood stream minus the healing effects. In fact, guaranteed that you will now get a nasty infection at the site of that silly little cut or scratch.

Moral of the story: Beware the french kissing stranger, and hug your dog instead!
