I loved animals, so much, that I had several pets. A turtle, a guinea pig, and my iguana 'Iggy'. I never saw anything wrong having so many. As long as I could take care of them well, they were usually really cool pets to have.
It wasn't until a rough day at school, that I realized there were plenty of large downsides to having a lot of pets. One of the more popular girls had gone around and told everyone the I smelled like cat pee, and slept in a barn. I was really surprised at first, as no one had ever said anything about smelling. It made me feel awkward the rest of the day, as I tried to make it through school.
