okay so. when it comes to youtubers who focus on their pets
1. why does everyone feel the need to criticize them for EVERY move they make with their animals? (aka, why do you get them out for the camera? why do they live alone without another animal of their species? why do you feed them that?) like i know some people are simply concerned for animals, but these youtubers GENERALLY take very good care of their pets and MOST LIKELY they know what they're doing with them! also it comes off as super self-righteous and also insulting to constantly criticize every move a yter makes with their animals
2. why do people get mad when someone owns a lot of pets (like 30+ or whatever) if theyre taking care of them properly, there is literally NO reason to be upset that they have a bunch of animals?? is it just jealousy or? what's the deal with that. they can have as many pets as they want as long as theyre taking care of them the correct way

I know somebody who has an account for his service dog and he legit almost deleted the account just because of the hate. People would go on and attack a mentally ill teenage boy about "you shouldn't feed her that, feed her this, this, and this" (because not being rich is lack of experience?), "you're not training her right", "youre pushing her too hard" which. She is a SERVICE DOG. She needs to learn and she obviously WANTS to learn !! People who think they know more about people's pets than the owner themselves leave a nasty taste in my mouth.

THIS !!!!! HOLY FUCK !!! THIS !!!!
this is literally my biggest pet peeve ever???? like the pet keeping community (dont actually know if thats a thing but u get it) is so annoying in this sense??? and shit like this always ends up making me second guess myself and then i get guilty :'\ i cant imagine how all these youtubers must feel when everyone is just ragging on them constantly when im sure they're just doing their best??? and like,, i get being concerned for the well being of animals but people have to fucking rEALIZE !!!! THAT UR PET IS NOT THE POSTER CHILD FOR EVERY INDIVIDUAL OF THAT SPECIES !!!!! ANIMALS ARE AS UNIQUE AS HUMANS AND EVERY INDIVIDUAL IS DIFFERENT LIKE WHAT PART OF THAT DO THEY NOT UNDERSTAND?????

DRAG THEM SAM!!!

no i completely agree with everything you said though. it's so annoying. as you said every animal is different,, and also THERE IS MORE THAN ONE WAY TO PROPERLY TAKE CARE OF A PET!! it's so easy to do your own research and ask other people too like... why does everyone assume that pet owners are uneducated? everyone is equally capable of doing research and they more than likely did it before they got their pet,,

sjjFDJJ THIS
people criticizing their........every.......move
and im just,,,,,shut up fr gods sake i bet you do things that make your pet/s uncomfortable/arent the Best Thing for them either, too, occasionally
why are you.....nitpicking someone and babying them on How to Raise a Pet like,,,,no If They Needed to Know its Not Hard to Google It and they probably Already Know Anyways 
i did extensive researching over huskies/golden retrievers when i got my dog and i bet They did their research for their pet/s Too

legit!! they probably did their research before they got their pet, like any sane person. I feel like every time they show a pic or video of their animal they have people policing their every goddamn move and I'm just like ?!?!?! it's so insulting and annoying?!?!

yes that is also true, people in general who act like they know everything are really annoying
like
y do u think ur so much smarter than,, anyone else... if you know the information it's probably common enough knowledge that anybody can find it out on their own anyway. and as you said, everyone has their own way of doing things and their own lifestyles and as long as it's not harming anyone then just... leave them... Alone....... aaaaaa
