I think I have an issue with getting animals.. I look for animals everyday.. anything from free to $100.. I currently have 10 and I’m getting 4-6 more today.. I just feel I need to rescue every animals I seen.. I was thinking about giving some to nice homes but I don’t trust people with my animals… especially since all but two of my animal were given to me in shitty conditions… I’m most likely gonna stop after this.. I can’t have so many animals.. we are only supposed to have 3 cats.. I feel guilty for getting them but I also feel I need to save them all

      Are you keeping your animals safe and healthy? Someone taking animals just because they feel the need to save them can put the animals in dangerous situations if someone is not equipped to care for them all. If you couldn't afford surgery for multiple of them at once, you should give them to other people

      this is definitely a compulsion that can go very bad very fast, animals are living creatures with wants and needs and often many species are high maintenance. if you aren’t getting an animal with proper decision making, you should rethink it. try to redirect your attention to the animals at home, it may help. if you have a therapist you should bring it up and see if they have any tips. unfortunately by doing this, we aren’t “saving them all” like we want to, I’ve experienced this situation before and it can get sticky. I wish you the best of luck!

        @Eren2273 I also do lots of research on pets before I take them. But the only ones I have that need extra care are the hedgehogs. All the other ones are typical childrens pets. I bath them when they need it and I feed and give them water everyday. I also do it to help with my depression bc it motivates me to move around.

          @Alexxxxxx that’s great! my mom does the same. but a certain amount will be enough for you to benefit still and also not overwhelm yourself while making sure everybody is cared for (including you)

        @Eren2273 I make enough money to care for them. And feed them. But I don’t think any of them will need surgery but when the time comes the time comes and I’ll figure it out.
