Look at some of these questions. Click on "discussion" button above to write your ideas.
  • Use your best writing, no slang. This is not IM, but a discussion. Not every person will be a native English speaker.
  • Disagree courteously.
  • Never insult others.
  • Avoid meaningless comments like "me too" or "I agree", instead add meaningful reasons why!
  • Do you have a pet?
  • Do you think people should have pets?
  • Is a pet a possession or another living creature who shares your space?
  • What kinds of animals are good pets? What kind are not?
  • Are some kinds of animals more naturally able to live with people?

Here is a gallery of animals from a small zoo in Israel. Do zoo animals make good pets? Can you tell which of the animals in this gallery can be pets, which can be farm animals, and which are only for living in the wild?
