  7. Taking Care of PetsA pet cannot be thrown into the trash when it is no longer wanted or tossed into a closet if it begins to bore its owner. A pet, like us, is a living thing that needs physical care, affection, and respect. Would-be owners, therefore, should think seriously about their responsibilities before they acquire a pet. How does the writer make the conclusion interesting?

  8. Animal CrueltyIf people stopped to think before acquiring pets, there would be fewer instances of cruelty to animals. Many times, it is the people who adopt pets without considering the expenses and responsibility involved who mistreat and neglect their animals. Pets are living creatures. If people continue being negligent and irresponsible with their pets, animal cruelty will exist forever! How does the writer make the conclusion interesting?
