    :hw: I didn't adopt shit this time. I busted out my wallet and started shelling out $100 bills.

    A lot of them. :smile:

    because its their child, their baby. pets are part of your family thus it's adopted.

    What else would you call taking a live creature in your home, feeding it, taking it to the dr, cleaning up after it?
    It's not like rent-a-center.

    When you put it like that I'd call it a stupid decision.

    I would. There are plenty of idiots in this world that would pay a ton of money for an animal.

    Maybe. People sell pets all the time. Pets are not children.

    People adopt many things. Like you, you've adopted a moronic persona on a message board, Schmoopy has adopted a way of life akin to a hermit, Sip has adopted the platform of the far right, I adopted Monty from his litter.

    The worst are people that say they "rescued" it.

    Adoption implies commitment.
