Having something to pet and play with is not worth this kind of stress
I am pet sitting for my sibling. Watching his pet makes me realize that I never want a pet. Yes, the pup is super cute and fun to pet. But, there are too many negatives to the creature. The pet is a lot of job and picking up poop is just plain gross. The worst is how the pet affects my house. The pet sheds fur in many weird colors. Brown, colorless and black hair show up in the weirdest venues. I am always vacuuming and cleaning up pet hair. The fur has particularly got up inside of my HVAC system. I usually clean out my air filter every week. With the pet I check the AC filter everyday. The hair clogs it up and my heating and air doesn’t run as good. I also don’t want to have fur polluting my indoor air quality. I don’t have a pet dander flu symptom, but it can’t be great to breathe in. I am nervous that some of the hair might have gotten deeper into my HVAC too. So that means it is running sluggish and costing me more money. I might have a future HVAC maintenance over a pet. So right now I am trying to take apart my HVAC to deliver it a great cleaning. Having something to pet and play with is not worth this kind of stress. If I end up needing HVAC service, my sibling is paying for it. His overly hairy pet would have been the cause of it. My HVAC was in great condition before the pet arrived.
