Default Would you risk your own life to save your Pet?

We really wanted to know so we asked this question in a poll.

Default Re: Would you risk your own life to save your Pet?

this is a hard question. i'd love to say "yes" immediately, but then i thought, what if my beloved fell off the balcony (i'm on the top floor)? i know i will not jump off the balcony after him, but i will rush downstairs immediately. but this might be too late to save him.

i think it is more truthful for me to say i will do my very, very best to save my cat, even rushing after him into the middle of the road, or fighting with a bully who hurt him, or going into dangerous places to rescue him, but there may be situations like the falling off balcony where i know i will be too scared to reach out for him.

this has always been my biggest fear, actually, that he might fall off and i won't be brave enough to jump and grab him.

Default Re: Would you risk your own life to save your Pet?

what kind of question is this? if there is a risk but you know you can.. (like fireman saving cat in a burning place (he's a fireman, he's got gadgets, he's been there), it will be worth the shot.. but to really risk your own life.. (jump on a speeding truck hoping max payne act).

definitely not, please lah. no matter how much we love our pet.. have to have brain as well.. you think your parents will be proud cause u jump on a strong flood to save a dog and eventually died yourself? your children would be proud cause momma or daddy died helping a cat? what a thorough thought.

paying is another issue.. but 2000-3000RM while you strive to provide food on the table?

so what, if you will risk your life for your pet then you'd be paraded as super animal lover and be number 1 lover here?

what kind of qs is this.

chelly dear, it's just a poll. it's like the hard talk program, hard questions that make us think. not to parade the super pet owner.

its not a hard qs lah kak charlene. this is just to stop the best animal lover mojo (or the most generous in that sense) that been goin around just because we do not conform to the ways offered (if u realize my case). to me deep down we know how far we'd go and how much we love. this poll is the epitome of the mojo.

Default Re: Would you risk your own life to save your Pet?

chelly,
we all know how far we'll go. i know i'm not sure if i'll be able to risk my own life to save my pet when i'm confronted with the situation. and i dont think this poll is to show how good we are as animal lovers.

and i also understand the part about the medical fees. we do what we can afford.

but i think the question is deeper. it's about your heart. there are people have RM100,000 savings in their account but not willing to pay RM2000 in medical fees. of course if you are struggling to put food on table, then no one expects you to come out with RM2000 for medical fees. where to get that money? it's crazy, right?

so, i don't think it's a mojo thing as you suggested. i think it's a question that makes you look deep into your heart, that's all.

In reality, there are still have many pet owners who are unable to pay for high medical cost for their pets. It's true.

Hmn...It is really a hard question. Like what Blackie said, when I read this poll, I would happy to vote for Yes. Anyway, is depend to the situation. If it is a car is almost to Hit my love pet, automatically, i will run toward to protect it as my own children is running out of road. The same as fire happen in my own house, I will still fight myself to save the little one, coz I hope the one suffer is me not him my pet. I noe if what really happen on me that going to hurt my parent or relative, but I only can said I'm sorry to them yet I will feel I have go peacefully rather than I stand there and watch my pet die in front of me and I cant do anything, I will feel pain and hate myself forever.

If the situation happen like fall down from balcony, tis one is true as Blackie, I will not dare to jump down and grab it..I will YELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL OUT loudly and cry coz I cant do anything..

Whaaaaaaaaaaaat a question, DIMB!

Okay, you ask a "pening" question and I will give you a "pening" answer :

My head says "No" but my heart says "Yes" and it depends on which one is ruling my body at that point of time ... as humans we have all done silly and illogical things at one time or other, especially as teenagers.

To cut short the beating around the bush, my answer at this point of time (when none of my pets are in mortal danger) is theoretically "NO" (not that I will simply go get another pet, but logically, my mind tells me that I need to help the others ... and if I am gone, there will be one less person able to help them, and there are really so few of us and sooooooo many of them!).

But don't be surprised to see me acting the perfect fool jumping into the fire to save my precious irreplaceable little mouser, Tiger ... in times of emergencies and life threatening situations, within that split second, often we do not have the luxury of time to hesitate and think at all ... and in that split second, it would be pure reflex ... that is why in the military they do drills.
