I've heard that there are people who put down their pets because they don't want them anymore, and don't want to bother with rehoming them. WTF'n hell? Who does crap like that? If you can't commit for the whole possible life of an animal, then don't go there! How could it be simpler? As Yoda said, "Do, or do not! There is no try!!" If you commit to be a "fur parent, then appoint a fur god-parent who can help or even take over.
