As you may remember from one of my previous blog posts, “The Sky Is Falling!”, the earth as we know it will supposedly be coming to an end on May 21. “But what about their pets?” you say. Fear not! I have good news for the Doomsday believers. According to this article, a group of atheists can “provide a loving home” for your pets for a reasonable fee. So, if you have a dog, cat, bird, rabbit, small caged mammal, horse, camel, llama or donkey you are in luck. “Eternal Earth-Bound Pets, USA” will bring your pet into their home and care for them for the rest of the pet’s life. Unfortunately, it appears that iguanas and alpacas are not on the list. The iguana exclusion is because they haven’t found anyone willing to take one on. However, I do not understand why alpacas are not on the list, but llamas and camels are. I mean, don’t they all spit, carry baggage and provide wool (some)? And if you have a ferret, monkey or wallaby, we’ll just question your sanity anyway. ;-)
As with many articles, the comments were quite funny. My favorite:
My Ex was a dog. Will they take him?
May 21 is coming soon, folks! Better start making arrangements! Since you won’t need money in heaven, you can donate it to me. I will even take care of your plants.
